NEW DELHI: The National Test Agency (NTA) may start conducting the CUCET entrance exam twice a year from 2021 in online mode. This has been recommended through a report submitted by the 7-member committee (tasked with framing the modalities for CUCET) headed by RR Tiwari, VC of Central University of Punjab to the Ministry of Education (MOE).

As per the committee’s recommendations, “The National Testing Agency (NTA) will work to offer a high-quality common aptitude test, as well as specialized common subject exams in the sciences, humanities, languages, arts, and vocational subjects, at least twice every year.”

“These exams shall test conceptual understanding and the ability to apply knowledge eliminating the need for taking coaching for these exams. Students will be able to choose the subjects for taking the test, and each university will be able to see each student’s individual subject portfolio and admit students into their programmes based on individual interests and talents,” states the report.

Besides this, the committee has proposed that there should be only one common application platform for admission to all 41 central universities. The CUCET 2021 proposal also includes suggestions like having a common e-counselling portal for admissions.

It must be known that many central universities including Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Allahabad University and Delhi University will come into the fold of CUCET from 2021 and will offer admissions to UG and PG programmes through CUCET.

Earlier, Careers360 had reported that the admission process for CUCET 2021 will likely begin from June end.
