Universities would receive 30% more students based on their places, if they drop out or withdraw. Sports and extracurricular activities (ECAs), the testing of which had been halted by the Covid pandemic, will also be relaunched, he said. However, the certificates will also count for the same with the CUET score.
There would be three sections of the CUET 2022 in which the first section is divided into two parts. It consists of 13 languages in the first part and 20 languages in the second part. It is mandatory for applicants to apply in at least one language for admission to the University of Delhi, in these two parts combined.
The second section of the entrance exam consists of 27 subject-specific topics. The third section is based on general knowledge which will be for admission to the BA program only. To enter most UG programs, a candidate must choose at least three subjects from the second section, which has been divided into two parts.
Most of the B.Sc programs would be calculated on the basis of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics or Biology. However, 30 per cent of marks in any language at CUET must also be obtained as a qualifying criterion.
To be admitted to the Bachelor of Arts, a candidate must take the entrance test in one of the languages of the first section and in three subjects of the other section. Merit will be calculated on the basis of the qualifications obtained by the candidate in the same subject and in the same language.
For the BA (Hons) Economics, it is compulsory for candidates to sit the Mathematics exam for the CUET. The merit for this will be calculated on the basis of the marks obtained in the chosen language, mathematics and two subjects.
For admission to language programs, applicants can choose a
particular language at CUET or take a test in any other language. However,
preference will be given to those that appear in the language in question.
A candidate can take CUET in a maximum of six subjects, one of which must be a language subject. The best score will be considered for admission.
