Day 1 and 2 of Central Universities Common Entrance Test (CUCET) 2021 for postgraduate admission has been successfully conducted by NTA. The examinations were held on September 15 and 16, 2021 while the remaining exams for the PG courses will be held on September 24, 2021. Right after the completion of the first two days of the test, educators, coaching institutes and experts posts the CUCET analysis on You Tube.
Various channels like ‘Parmeshwar kumar chemistry’, ‘Mohnish Gautam PHYSICS’, ‘CUCET Careers’, etc. have provided detailed analyses of day 1 and 2 of the entrance examination. To access these videos, one can simply type ‘CUCET 2021 analysis’ on the search box and find them easily. As per experts, the standard of the questions, as compared to the questions asked in CUCET 2020, were quite low and not too tough. This year, minimum number of questions were asked from those topics/chapters which were covered last year.
CUCET 2021 examination is held as a computer-based test (CBT) where the students have to answer 100 questions. For some subjects, the question paper is divided into two parts: A and B. Part A carries 25 questions while Part B has 75 questions. The questions are mainly from topics like English, General Knowledge, Numerical Ability, Logical Reasoning, Data Interpretation, etc. along with topics from the respective subjects. For every correct question, 04 marks are awarded while for every incorrect one, 01 mark is deducted.
Admissions to the participating universities of CUCET 2021 will be held after the results are declared. Based on that, the universities will release individual cut-offs and merit lists. For example, in 2019, the cut-off for the UR category in Central University of Rajasthan, for the integrated M.Sc. Biochemistry course was 60 while the lowest was for the ST category – 36.5. Similarly, for the Central University of Haryana, the cut-off for the M.Sc. Statistics course in Round I was as high as 134 while it came down to 60 in the second round. The cut-offs differ university-wise and the previous year cut-offs will just give an idea about the same. As per unofficial sources, the cut-offs for most PG courses are around 50-70. Thus, having a score above 50 is considered safe to get admission.
CUCET is held every year to provide a single-window opportunity for students to seek admission to the various academic programmes that are offered by the participating universities. To get direct access to the CUCET 2021 analysis, here are the links given below:
