On putting off Class XII marks primarily based admissions in addition to granting any weightage to Board examination scores, M Jagadesh Kumar, chairperson, UGC, stated: “Not using Class XII marks is not a new thing, for example in all IIT admissions we use JEE scores primarily because of the diversity of the boards and the different kinds of evaluation systems. The same is true with the university admissions also. And that’s the reason why we are giving one standard, NCERT syllabus so everybody can prepare from there and have a common reference ground and compete and then get admission. So that’s the reason why we have decided to go for only a CUET score for admission in UG programmes.”

Kumar stated that the CUET will present a standard platform to get admission in all universities and schools and supply equal alternatives to candidates throughout the nation from totally different instructional boards, and particularly these from the Northeast a part of our nation and from the rural and distant areas. “It is also expected to reduce the financial burden on parents and students do not have to write multiple tests for admission in UG and PG programmes. For the academic session 2022-23 all higher educational institutions, irrespective of whether they are state universities, private universities or deemed to be universities can use the CUET score for admissions in UG and PG programmes. However, admissions in the UG programmes in all central universities will be based solely on CUET scores,” stated Kumar.

As first reported by the TOI on March 16, CUET will be performed in 13 languages. It will comprise of three sections – a obligatory language check (out of the 13 languages), a website check the place a candidate will be allowed to 6 a most of six area particular checks out of 27 choices and the third part which is non-obligatory the place an aspirant can take a basic check (aptitude) and a languages check out of 19 given decisions (which embody Japanese, Russian, , German, French, Santhali, and so on) if he/ she needs to pursue that language at undergraduate degree.

According to Kumar, the examination is to be scheduled in two shifts. “Shift one will have the compulsory language test, two domain subjects and the general test. Shift two will have four domain subjects and the one language of 19 choices given.”

According to the UGC head, the new entrance check will not have an effect on current reservation coverage as per the provisions contained in the ordinances or rules of the respective universities throughout admissions. “All we are saying is that you need to use CUET scores for your admissions. Let’s say a certain university reserves a certain percentage of the seats for local students. It will remain for the local students. The only difference is that the local students or the reserved category like all other students will also come through the common entrance test.”

On whether or not the similar guidelines will apply to central universities comparable to Jamia Millia Islamia and Aligarh Muslim University or St Stephen’s College who admission coverage is totally different from the remainder of DU schools, Kumar stated that CUET score is obligatory for all central universities and their affiliated schools. “When CUET is made compulsory for a central university, it will be mandatory for its constituent colleges as well. However, the university’s statutory body has to discuss it first and adopt it. In minority institutions, where a certain percentage of seats are reserved for the aspirants from the minority communities, use of CUET score will not impact the reservation. Therefore, admission for those seats too will be based on CUET.”
