CUET will not make board exams irrelevant
The UGC chairman has said that CUET will neither make the board exams irrelevant nor give a push to “coaching culture.”
“The universities will still use board exams as qualifying criteria. Some universities can peg the requirement at 60 percent, some may choose to set 70 percent as a requirement, so there is no question of board exams being made irrelevant,” he said.
“However, the focus on getting 100 per cent marks will definitely be reduced. Instances of a student getting 98 percent but still not getting admission to a good college will definitely be reduced after this,” he said.
