The Common University Entrance Test (CUET) has emerged as a pivotal national-level examination in India, administered by the National Testing Agency (NTA). Its primary purpose is to facilitate undergraduate (UG) admissions in participating universities across the nation. CUET made its debut in 2022 and is poised to be conducted biannually, starting from 2023.
CUET is a computer-based examination, predominantly comprising multiple-choice questions (MCQs). It is divided into three core sections:
Section 1: Language (English or Hindi)
Section 2: Domain-specific subjects (Arts, Humanities, Commerce, Science, etc.)
Section 3: General Test (encompassing quantitative reasoning, logical reasoning, and general knowledge) Aspirants have the flexibility to choose whether they wish to appear for all three sections or select specific ones, contingent upon the eligibility criteria outlined by the universities they intend to apply to.
