CUCET (Central Institutions Common Entrance Test), an all-India test for 41 central universities, will be used by DU to begin college admissions in 2022.
Here's everything you need to know.
What is CUCET?
The Central Universities Common Entrance Test (CUCET) is an all-India test for admission to various under-graduate/integrated, post-graduate, and research programmes in central/state universities in India.
It is one of the most significant improvements to the Indian education system in recent years.
CUCET has been renamed the common entrance test for admissions to 41 core universities, including JNU, DU, and BHU, in current academic year. According to a letter from the University of Georgia, the CUCET will be administered by the National Testing Agency (NTA).

The NEP 2020 included CUCET as a goal. It was supposed to begin in the 2021-22 school year, but it was postponed because to the Covid-19 epidemic.
Source: ShikshaIt is now scheduled to begin in the next academic year. According to sources, the UGC has stated that private and deemed universities, as well as state-run universities, can apply for admission via CUCET. A unified admission test had already been conducted by a number of key universities.
The main difference today is that the previous edition of CUCET was administered in an offline mode, but the plan now is to administer the test as a computer-based test (CBT). Universities should employ a combination of CUCET and Class 12 scores for UG admissions, along with a single form to apply to several universities, according to a committee formed last year to develop the various parts of CUCET.
CUCET should be held twice a year, according to the committee. The exam's full specifics are expected to be released soon.
A universal entrance test for higher education was envisaged in the NEP 2020. This will end the current skewed distribution of grades among pupils.
We have seen the sky-high cut-offs of Delhi University throughout time, putting a lot of pressure on students and parents to do their best so that they can get into these colleges. There will be no stream selection; instead, a multidisciplinary approach will be used, with the option of learning a foreign language and a greater emphasis on critical thinking.
Students will be able to acquire a broad understanding of the subjects as a result of this. A student pursuing Mathematics honours, for example, will now be able to take history as a subject. This is the most essential recommendation of the new multidisciplinary education policy.

The expected CUCET strategy is as follows:
The pupils will be tested on the following topics during the computer-based aptitude test:
1. Common Aptitude Test (Section A)
2. Domain-Specific Test (Section B)
The CUCET entrance exam will be required of all students seeking admission to all institutions, according to experts, who believe that a common admission test for all colleges is an imperative necessity.
Why is it critical to implement CUCET now?
For the following reasons, it is critical:
a. University cut-offs are increasing, putting undue strain on students.
b. All pupils have the same opportunity.
c. This will help students realise the value of aptitude development and prepare them for the job market.
d. The academic quality of students will improve.
e. The goal will be to provide kids with a complete development.
This decision to administer one exam is a positive one that will provide students with an equal opportunity in the real world.
Students must constantly seek to improve their talents and recognise the importance of aptitude development in order to achieve this.
An admission exam such as the CUCET will provide not only an equal opportunity to all students, but also an opportunity for universities to assess the students' ability levels.
