Central varsities to go for common admission test through NTA
Central universities will select candidates for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses through common entrance tests from the next academic year.
The University Grants Commission (UGC) informed the institutions last week about the decision to conduct the Central Universities Common Entrance Test (CUCET) from the 2022-23 session.
The entrance exams are likely to be conducted by the National Testing Agency. There are 45 central universities, each of whom decides its own admission procedure now.
For admission to master’s courses, a dozen new central universities conduct a combined entrance test.
The CUCET was to be conducted from the current academic session but was deferred because of the pandemic.
