What is the CUCET 2022 Exam?

CUCET is a national-level entrance exam that admits students to 54 central universities across India for UG, PG, and integrated programmes.
Previously, pupils were evaluated based on their 12th grade grades, but today you must take a standard aptitude test and pass it with qualifying scores.

The modalities for this aptitude exam will be recommended by a seven-member group.

The exam is a computer-based test administered twice a year by NTA and will begin soon for the 2022-2023 class.

According to a recent recommendation, Delhi University, Banaras Hindu University, Jamia Milia Islamia, Jawahar Lal Nehru University, and many more universities would conduct this exam for the first time.

NEP agreed to implement a common entrance test instead of a merit-based competition for admission to such colleges.
