What is CUCET EXAM ?

CUCET, as previously stated, is a national-level entrance exam that admits students to 54 central universities across India. Previously, you were judged solely on the basis of your 12th grade grades, but now you must take a standard aptitude exam. This aptitude test's modalities will be recommended by a seven-member group. According to a recent recommendation, these colleges will conduct this exam for the first time this year. NEP decided to scrap the merit-based admissions process for these universities. Only this common entrance test will be used to admit students.

Latest Updates For CUCET 2022-
-Delhi University expected to introduce CUCET in 2022-23 - in accordance with UGC rules
-Admissions to DU will begin through CUCET in 2022 : Everything you need to know about the common admissions test for 41 central universities  


Why to give CUCET EXAM?

We've seen that premier universities with high cut-off marks have a lot of competition. As a result, the CAT will lessen the impact of high cut-off scores for good universities. For major universities such as Delhi University, Banaras Hindu University, Central University of Punjab, and Jawaharlal Nehru University, this will be a centralised test. You can take this single aptitude test to gain admission to top institutions instead of taking many entrance exams.
