CUET- Central University Entrance Test

The Common University Entrance Test (CUET) was introduced in 2022 for admission to all undergraduate (UG) programs in Central Universities.

The Common University Entrance Test (CUET) aims to provide a unified platform and equal opportunities to candidates nationwide, particularly those from rural and remote areas. It also fosters better connectivity with universities. This single examination allows candidates to broaden their application scope for admission to various Central Universities.

CUET is not entirely new; it was previously known as CUCET and was introduced in 2010 for admission to undergraduate, integrated postgraduate, and diploma/certificate courses at seven central universities.

However, the union government has now made the exam compulsory for admission to central universities, including institutions like Delhi University and Visva-Bharati University. Over 57 central universities and other institutions will now participate in the Computer-Based Test (CBT) conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA).
