National Testing Agency (NTA) conducts the Central Universities Common Entrance Test (CUCET) for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. Till last year, CUCET was conducted for admission to 13 newly established central universities.
However, Delhi University (DU) and Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) have now approved CUCET for admission in the upcoming academic year. DU had constituted an eight-member committee for CUCET. Till last year, admission for most undergraduate courses was done on the basis of cut-off marks, while for postgraduate courses entrance exams were conducted.
Admission to various undergraduate courses in JNU will also be done through CUCET.
