The National Testing Agency (NTA) conducts Central Universities Common Entrance Test (CUCET) for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. Until last year, the CUCET was conducted for admissions to 13 newly founded central universities.
However, the University of Delhi (DU) and the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) have now approved CUCET for the admissions to the upcoming academic year. DU had formed eight-member committee for CUCET. Until last year, the admissions were done on the basis of cut-off marks for most of the undergraduate courses, whereas for postgraduate courses, entrance exams were conducted.
Admission to various undergraduate courses at JNU will be done through CUCET as well. As per official JNU notification, the adoption of CUCET for admission to courses, will lead to a ‘level playing field’ for students across the country and lessen the load of conducting multiple entrance tests as well.
