On Friday, test centres in more than 510 Indian and international cities will open for the first time to administer the Common University Entrance Test UG, the second-largest entrance exam in the nation. The Universal University Entrance Test (CUET), which serves as the common entranceway for undergraduate admission in all central universities, has surpassed JEE Main’s average registration of nine lakh to become the second-largest entrance exam with 14.9 lakh registrations. With an average of 18 lakh registrations, NEET UG is India’s largest admission examination.

Aspirants are nervously preparing for the exam that will change how undergraduate admissions are handled in the nation, especially at renowned central universities like Delhi University where class 12 scores were a deciding factor, while the National Testing Agency (NTA) conducts a final check of the logistics.

“Approximately 14,90,000 students have been scheduled for the CUET UG 2022, with 6.80 lakh candidates in the second slot and 8.1 lakh candidates in the first. These applicants submitted 54,555 distinct topic combinations to 90 universities “Jagadesh Kumar, the UGC chairman, stated. “A distinct date sheet has been generated for each application due to the vast number of subjects. As a result, all candidates have received advance notification slips for the examination cities that include the date and location of the exam “Added he.

CUET UG 2022

There will be two phases to the exam. Phase 1 will take place in July, followed by Phase 2 in August. NEET UG 2022 will be held on July 17. Candidates who choose Physics, Chemistry, or Biology have been assigned to Phase 2 of the CUET exam. The exam will be administered between July 15 and August 20 at exam centres spread across more than 500 Indian cities and 10 foreign locations, according to Kumar. For those taking the CUET test in phase 1, applicants have been concerned about a delay in receiving admit cards and less time for preparation. “Some candidates have asked to switch centres. The NTA is taking such demands into consideration, so applicants shouldn’t worry, Kumar added.

Speaking more specifically about the format of the score, Kumar stated it will be the NTA score, which is presented as a %. “The result will show where an applicant stands in comparison to other test-takers. It serves as a gauge of the candidate’s position in relation to others “explained he. In March, the UGC director said that admission to 45 central universities, which can set their own minimum eligibility standards, will be based on CUET results rather than Class 12 marks. According to Kumar, the new approach will not prejudice state board students, and the exam will not encourage the culture of coaching.

For the first iteration of CUET for UG admissions in the academic year 2022–2023, a total of 44 central institutions, 12 state universities, 11 deemed universities, and 19 private universities have applied. After the CBSE releases its results for the class 12 exams, the University Grants Commission on Wednesday requested that universities set a deadline for admission to undergraduate programmes. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has yet to release the class 12 results, but some colleges had already begun the admissions process. The UGC noted this and claimed it would prevent students from the board from receiving a seat in these institutions.
