Today, i.e., September 6, 2021, is the last day for adding corrections to candidates’ online forms for the Central Universities Common Entrance Test (CU-CET) 2021 as well as for the payment of the online fee for the entrance test. Students can make their final submissions by 11.50 pm tonight by visiting the official site of CUCET, i.e cucet.nta.nic.in.
The last date of paying the online fee has also been extended from 02 September 2021, to 06 September 2021.
The NTA (National Testing Agency) has also added two more examination centres at Port Blair, Andaman and Nicobar islands, and Kasaragod, Kerala, keeping in mind the travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The NTA has assured the students of allotting the closest examination centres possible.
The CU-CET is conducted every year by the NTA for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate programs for 12 central universities within the country. This year, the exams will be conducted through a Computer-Based Test (CBT) on the following dates: 15 September, 16 September, 23 September and 24 September 2021. The test will be Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) based and conducted over 120 minutes.
The admission to universities will depend upon the individual policies of the respective university. After the declaration of the CU-CET results by the NTA, central universities will declare their merit list on the basis of the CU-CET scores. The selected candidates will be called for online/offline counselling based on the particular university’s policy. For the universities that admit students through CU-CET, one has to sit in the entrance test to be able to take admission. These universities do not provide any alternative ways of admission.
At the time of admission, it is pertinent for the students to have the original copy of their certificates. Those availing reservations need to have an up-to-date caste certificate issued by the competent authority, valid on the date of admission.
Students are suggested to regularly visit the NTA site: nta.ac.in and the CU-CET website: cucet.nta.nic.in for regular updates.
