The Central Universities Common Entrance Test (CUCET) for undergraduate admission will not be implemented from the 2021-22 educational session in view of the coronavirus pandemic, the University Grants Commission (UGC) introduced on Sunday.
The Ministry of Education had earlier introduced that the admission to the universities will be based mostly on a typical entrance test.
“In view of prevailing COVID-19 pandemic, admission process in central universities during academic session 2021-22 may continue as per past practice. Central Universities Common Entrance Test (CUCET) may be implemented from academic session 2022-23,” the UGC tweeted.
The Union Education Ministry had constituted a committee to look into modalities for the CUCET for admissions to all undergraduate programs at central universities as advised below the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.
