UGC President said: CUET will give equal opportunity to all board students

new delhi: University Grants Commission (UGC) chairman Jagdish Kumar said on Tuesday that the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) will not take away the relevance of board exams, nor will it encourage a “culture of coaching”. He said that the students of the state administration would not suffer from the undergraduate admission process, but that all students would be given equal opportunities. Kumar said the National Testing Agency (NTA) will consider conducting CUET twice a year from the next session.

It is NTA’s responsibility to run CUET. Kumar said CUET’s work will not be limited to admissions only to central universities as several reputable private universities have indicated that they are willing to use the combined admission test scores for admission to undergraduate courses.

“Initially, CUET will be administered once this year, but NTA will consider conducting the exam at least twice a year from the next session. The admission test will not be limited to only central universities, but private universities will also use it Many reputable private universities have also expressed their willingness to join and are willing to enroll students through CUET.

“Eight esteemed (presumed) universities, including the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) and Jamia Hamdard, have also expressed their willingness to use CUET scores to admit students to undergraduate courses. Yesterday I had a conversation with the rectorates and directors of these eight honorary universities that have received maintenance grants from the UGC.

Kumar had announced last week that it would be mandatory to use CUET marks and not class 12th grades for admission to 45 central universities and central universities can set their own minimum criteria.

When asked whether this exam would encourage “coaching culture” for undergraduate courses, Kumar said: “The exam does not require coaching, so it raises the question of whether the coaching culture should be promoted”. The exam will be based entirely on the 12th syllabus. Many students worry about whether 11th standard syllabus questions will also be asked on the exam, so the obvious answer is no.

“The students of the state administration will do no harm and the exam will provide equal opportunity to the students of all administrations,” Kumar said. Students from different economic backgrounds, from different places in the country and from rural areas, who take exams in regional languages, are all given equal opportunities.

“Universities will still use board exams as admission criteria,” he said. Some universities might choose 60 percent and some universities choose 70 percent compulsory, so the question of whether board exams become irrelevant does not arise. However, the tendency to insist on achieving 100% will certainly be less. The number of cases where a student does not get admission to a good university even after getting 98 percentage points will surely decrease after that.

NTA has announced that the application process for CUET for undergraduate courses in central universities will start from April 2. The agency said CUET will provide a one-time opportunity for students seeking admission at a central university across the country. She said that CUET (UG)-2022 will be run in a Computer Based Test (CBT) format.
