The University Grants Commission (UGC) has asked all universities and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to use the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) score for undergraduate (UG) admissions to save students from appearing in multiple entrance examinations.
The official notice said that these entrance exams are held on different dates that, at times, coincide with each other. The UGC has asked the universities to use the CUET score for UG admissions to provide equal opportunity to students from different boards.
The commission has also requested all the concerned institutions to complete their UG and PG admission processes by July 2023 and begin the academic session by August 01, 2023.
The National Testing Agency has already started the registrations for the CUET UG 2023. The candidates can apply for the CUET UG 2023 on the CUET official website, cuet.samarth.ac.in. The last date to apply for the CUET UG 2023 is March 12, 2023.
The CUET was introduced by the University Grants Commission (UGC) for admission to Graduate and Post Graduate courses. The CUET UG 2023 exam is scheduled to be held from May 21 to 31, 2023.
The number of subjects and the pattern of the question papers will remain the same as the previous year. A candidate can take as many as 6 domain subjects in addition to one or two languages and the general test. The exam will be conducted in 13 languages in three shifts per day. Candidates are advised to check the official site of UGC for more details.
