Is the performance in class 12th is not relevant now?

The performance of the students in class 12th is as necessary as it was before. The students need to gain knowledge in school time. Apart from this, UGC has left the universities to decide the minimum criteria. So, it can be possible for universities to get 50-60% marks in board exams. However, for appearing in UGC CUET 2022 the student has to just pass the class 12th exam same as during the admission in IIT only JEE scores are required.

What will be the process of the universities to select candidates?

Firstly, some qualifying marks will be fixed by the universities. Then based on the UGC CUET scores they will make a merit list of the qualified candidates.

What is the reason to conduct a common entrance test?

Conducting a Common Entrance test will lessen the burden of the students preparing for undergraduate admissions. As with the help of UGC CUCET, they don’t have to apply and appear in different universities’ entrance exams. Moreover, multiple entrance exams can cause stress to the students. Hence, UGC CUET will help in reducing that stress and will help students to concentrate on their board exams.

Hence, the candidate will get enough time to check the difference between their syllabus and the NCERT syllabus. If there is any difference they can prepare for it.
