CUET Mandatory for Central Universities

Policy Indications

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has made it compulsory for all central universities to only use CUET scores for admission in various undergraduate courses except some activity-oriented programmes such as performing arts and physical education. The UGC had earlier announced that Common University Entrance Test (CUET) scores, and not Class 12 scores, will be mandatory for admission to 45 central universities and the varsities can fix their minimum eligibility criteria. "It is clarified that all central universities and their colleges should only use the scores of CUET while admitting the students in UG programmes. According to the National Testing Agency (NTA), responsible for conducting the test, the CUET will provide a single-window opportunity to students seeking admission to any central university across the country. The exam will be conducted in a Computer-Based Test (CBT) mode.
