University Grants Commission (UGC) has decided to introduce the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) for admissions to postgraduate courses from the 2022 academic session, UGC chairperson M Jagadesh Kumar said on May 19.

Summary

  • The application process will begin on May 19 and end on June 18, said UGC chairperson Jagadesh Kumar
  • CUET PG exam will be conducted in English and Hindi in Computer Based Test (CBT) mode

"CUET for PG admissions will also be introduced from the 2022 academic session. The exam will be conducted in the third week of July and the application process will begin today and will conclude on June 18," Kumar said.

Earlier, the apex regulatory body for higher education in India had only mandated the use of CUET scores for admissions to undergraduate courses in 45 central universities and encouraged state universities to adopt CUET for admissions to various undergraduate courses they offer.

 

The decision of introducing CUET for admissions to postgraduate courses comes weeks after the UGC chief announced that CUET scores, and not Class XII scores, will be mandatory for admission to central universities. Central universities, he said, can fix their minimum eligibility criteria.

 

"The exam (CUET PG) will be conducted in English and Hindi in Computer Based Test (CBT) mode," he added.

Over 10.46 lakh candidates have registered for CUET UG so far. The last date for registration for CUET-UG is May 22.
