Delhi University has already announced its adoption of the CUET UG and PG exams for admissions to all programmes, regardless of category. All central universities are being urged to use the Common University Entrance Test Postgraduate (CUET-PG) as of the upcoming academic year by UGC Chief M. Jagadesh Kumar. Up until this point, universities all around the nation had the option to adopt CUET for their postgraduate programme.
“As you are aware, CUET provides a common platform and equal opportunities to candidates across the country, especially those from the North-East, rural areas, and other remote areas, and helps to establish better connections with the universities. A single examination allows candidates to cover a wide range of topics and participate in the admissions process at various central and participating universities.”The National Testing Agency (NTA) has been entrusted with the responsibility of conducting the CUET-UG/PG,” Kumar said.
The official schedule states that the CUET PG exams will be conducted from June 1 to June 10, 2023, for the academic year 2023–2024. According to earlier information from Kumar, the results for the same will be released in the first week of July. The CUET PG exams were held last year from September 1 to September 12; the results were announced on September 26.
Kumar said, that if all central universities join CUET-PG just as they have done for CUET-UG, it will enhance the opportunities for students across India to join India’s best universities. “I urge all CUs to use CUET-PG scores for admission to the PG programmes,” he said.
Delhi University will start using CUET UG and PG for admissions to all programmes in all categories as of the upcoming academic year. The decision was made public by the university during the executive council meeting on December 8. Instead of DUET, the CUET PG score will now be used to evaluate applicants.
