CUET will soon become compulsory for PG programs as well: UGC Chairman

The UGC is additionally talking about the chance of holding CUET two times per year, Kumar said.

The CUET was declared in March this year as a only window for admissions to undergraduate programs in the central universities nation over. From that point forward, numerous other non-central universities have additionally chosen to initiate the test.

Taking a gander at the “staggering reaction” from educational institutions, the UGC is currently stretching out the CUET to postgraduate programs offered by central universities, Kumar said.
