Significant developments are taking place in the education sector of India. Recently University Grants Commission (UGC) Chief Jagadesh Kumar has told news reporters that NTA may conduct CUET exams twice a year from 2023 onwards. It is a welcome step to help students improve their scores and chances of getting their desired course in their desired university.

Moreover, earlier, it was announced that the Central Universities would be taking admissions based on the CUET score of the students and board scores would now not be considered for admissions. It is also a welcome step as many students raised the objection of discrepancies in the system as boards are more scoring than others. This step will help JEE and NEET students in many ways-

  • Central Universities can serve as plan B for JEE and NEET aspirants. Many students, especially NEET students, fail to get a good rank to get college, so they choose to drop out to try for a better score in another attempt. Apart from JEE and NEET, students should also focus on CUET to join courses to save their academic year in case of failure. 
  • Students who didn’t perform well in board exams still have a chance to make their dreams come true. Due to unavoidable circumstances, many students don’t score well, or sometimes too many students score very well, and students who score even a little lower marks get crowded out.
  • The exam pattern for the upcoming biannual CUET 2023 is unclear, but still, students can safely guess it could be more or less be similar to the JEE mains pattern. 
The pattern of CUET 2022

The CUET exam Paper consists of 2 parts- Part A and Part B, and a general ability test which is not mandatory. Still, some universities may consider it as well for entrance exams. The details of the sections are :

  • Part A may have 25 Questions. The topics tested are General Awareness, English Language, Analytical Skills, and Mathematical Aptitude.
  • Part B may have 75 Questions, which will be domain-specific. 

For specific courses like the Integrated Programme or LLB or MBA or other such programs, there is no Part B, but rather Part A consists of 100 MCQs. The Domain-specific section has 27 subjects, and students at max choose 6 subjects. UGC has announced no new syllabus, so the syllabus is likely to be based on NCERTs.
