CUET-UG 2022 everything you need to know
The Central University Entrance Test (CUET), which is now required for undergraduate admission to any of the country’s 45 Central Universities, was introduced in April 2022, as announced by the Grants Commission universities (UGC).
All 45 central universities are now required to use CUET, a redesigned version of CUCET. This has happened since the new National Education Policy (NEP) was made public, which supports the requirement of an entrance exam for university admission.
By logging on to cuet.samarth.ac.in, applicants can apply for the entrance examination or make changes to their application. This window opened today, June 23, and will close at 11:50 p.m. M. of June 24.
Applicants will not be able to make any changes to the mobile number, email id and address they previously submitted on the application. However, they will be allowed to modify the following details: class 10 details, class 12 details, test center city selection, test medium, date of birth, gender and category.
Over 9,50,804 applications for admission to CUET-UG 2022 were received from 86 universities for admission. Of which 43 are central universities, 13 state universities, 12 considered universities and 18 private universities make up the rest.
As a result, CUET is now the nation’s second largest entrance exam for undergraduate programs, second only to the NEET UG medical entrance exam. Candidates can choose from any combination of the 33 languages and 27 different courses, and can take the exam in any of the 13 available media.
CUET 2022 consists of three sections. Language proficiency is tested in Sections I (IA and IB), Core Subject Knowledge is tested in Section II, and General Knowledge is tested in Section III of the exam. Here is a detailed explanation of the three sections:
Section-I: The first section of CUET is divided into IA and IB. Fluency in English or one of 12 Indian languages (Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Urdu, Assamese, Bengali, Punjabi or Odia) will be assessed in Section IA. The exam will last 45 minutes.
The IB section lists 19 foreign language study programs offered by various central universities. Languages offered include Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Tibetan, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Arabic, Bodo, Dogri, Maithili, Manipuri, Santali, cashmere and others.
Section II: This part will assess a candidate’s knowledge of the core disciplines they wish to study at the undergraduate level. Depending on this, they can choose up to six subjects from a list of 27, including Accounting/Accounting, Biology/Biological Studies/Biotechnology/Biochemistry, Business Studies, Chemistry, Computer Science/Computer Practice, Economics/Business Economics, Engineering Graphics, Entrepreneurship, Geography/Geology, History, Home Science, Indian Tradition and Knowledge Practices, Legal Studies, Environmental Science, Mathematics, PE/NCC/Yoga, Physics, etc.
In the Section II paper, which is also 45 minutes long, a candidate must answer 40 of the 50 questions.
Section III: For all undergraduate programs/programs offered by universities where a general examination is used for admission instead of admitting students based on their scores in relevant subjects, Section III of the CUET will be used . Candidates wishing to enroll in one of these courses will therefore be the only ones to follow it. The one-hour exam will test candidates’ general knowledge, current affairs knowledge, general mental capacity and digital skills. Through the direct application of the fundamental mathematical ideas of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and measurement taught in class 8. Quantitative reasoning will also be assessed. There will be 75 questions in this document, 60 of which need to be answered.
There will be a negative mark for incorrect answers in addition to the marks given to students for each correct answer. An incorrect answer will result in the deduction of one point. Points are not deducted for not answering a question.
