Delhi University has already announced that it will adopt CUET UG and PG for admission to all courses, in all categories.
Head of UGC, M Jagadesh Kumar, urges all Central Universities to adopt the Common University Entrance Test for Postgraduate Students (CUET-PG) from the next academic session. Until now, universities across the country had the option of adopting CUET for their graduate courses.
“As you know, CUET provides a common platform and equal opportunities for candidates across the country, especially those from the Northeast, rural areas and other remote areas, and helps build better relationships with the universities. A single exam allows candidates to cover a broad spectrum and be part of the admissions process at multiple central and participating universities. The National Testing Agency (NTA) has been given the responsibility to conduct the CUET-UG/PG,” Kumar said.
According to the official schedule, the CUET PG exams will be held from June 1-10, 2023 for the 2023-24 academic year. Its results will be released in the first week of July, Kumar previously reported. Last year, the CUET PG exams were held from September 1 to September 12, and the result was announced on September 26.
Kumar, said if all Central Universities join CUET-PG as they have done with CUET-UG, it would increase the opportunities for students from all over India to join top Indian Universities. “I urge all UCs to use CUET-PG scores for admission to PG programs,” he said.
From next academic year, University of Delhi will adopt CUET UG and PG for admission to all courses, in all categories. The university team announced its decision after its executive board meeting on December 8. Now, the CUET PG score will be used to assess students for admission, instead of DUET.
