CUET is Aiming at Taking Stress Out of Every DU Aspirant

CUET is Aiming at Taking Stress Out of Every DU Aspirant

CUET is Aiming at Taking Stress Out of Every DU Aspirant

By Admin / Apr 05, 2022


University education for UG programmes is due to take a complete makeover from the academic year 2022-23. No more running around to different universities and colleges in a frantic effort to match the percentages scored to the cut-offs. More so for aspirants to Delhi University colleges, where cut-offs are simply prohibitive.

CUET aims at providing a level playing field for students coming from diverse backgrounds – academic, economic, linguistic, rural, or urban, evaluation patterns of state and national boards. CUET exam can be taken in 13 different languages.

Another stress buster under the new CUET is that the curriculum for Class XII is only tested (in Domain Tests), which is still likely to be fresh in the candidates' minds. Candidates not so well conversant with the use of computers will also be at ease because they need to use only the mouse, not the keyboard for selecting the answers.

With 70,000 seats across 70+ colleges/institutes for various UG programmes, Delhi University is among the 45+ central universities that have agreed to the paradigm shift from this academic year. DU will henceforth provide admission to its UG programmes, based solely on the marks scored by candidates in the CUET 2022 entrance examination, replacing the existing cut-off system based on Class 12 marks and/or its own UG admission test named DU JAT. The board exam cut-off and the DU JAT criteria will now merge into CUET.

DU admission aspirants need to heave a sigh of relief since the new system makes the admission process a lot simpler and stress-free. Here is what you need to do:

  1. Register for CUET. Registrations are open already, and candidates need to pick their courses and universities before submitting their application forms (to be aware of the university requirements).
  2. As per Delhi University's guidelines, candidates must take CUET in only those subjects they have cleared in Class 12 Board exams.
  3. If the subject studied in Class 12 does not figure in CUET, the candidate will have to appear in a similar or closely related subject.
  4. After the candidates get their CUET exam score, they can immediately apply for the counselling process.
  5. Based on the merit list released by the university, candidates will be invited to the counselling process
  6. After applications, each participating college shall conduct the counselling process separately.
  7. Merit will be calculated based on a combination of subjects appeared for in CUET as mentioned in the program-specific eligibility criteria.
  8. If a student gets selected into multiple universities/colleges, s/he selects one university for admission and a revised merit list is prepared for the rest.

All said and done, CUET is your ticket to a budding career. It is up for grabs, only if you are up to it. Are you? Here is TCYonline.com, the largest online platform (with 500+ partner centres/institutes) in supplemental education for UG entrance, prepared to take you the extra mile.
