CUET will be held in 547 cities in India and in 13 cities outside India. The exam will be conducted in 13 languages including English, Hindi, Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Odia, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu.
According to the official newsletter, the three-and-a-half-hour computer-based entrance test will only have questions with a choice of options based on the content of NCERT’s 12th grade textbooks.
Last month, the University Grants Commission (UGC) ordered central universities to use only CUET for admission to graduate programs (UG), with the exception of some activity-oriented programs such as performing arts.
“Continuing our previous letters regarding participation in the General Entrance Examination (CUET) at all UGC-funded central universities for admission to UG programs, it is clarified that all central universities and their colleges should use only CUET scores when admitting students to UG programs. . However, in some courses based on activities such as fine arts / performing arts / sports / physical education, etc., additional criteria may be used, ”the UGC noted.
Vice Chancellor of the University of Delhi Yogesh Singh defended the exam, saying that the shutdown system does not provide equal opportunities for all students.
He said CUET would evaluate them on an equal footing and would not be detrimental to those who studied on boards that did not indulgently put grades.
“The previous system did not favor those who came from strict or moderate councils. In a country like India, there are 30 to 40 state councils, each council has its own uniqueness, and we respect that. But students need to be measured by similar parameters.” – Singh said.
However, critics say CUET will evoke a culture of coaching and will be disadvantageous for students from boards other than CBSE because the curriculum will be mapped with the NCERT program.
