A day after the National Examinations Agency (NTA) finished registration for the CUET UG 2022, the Chair of the University Grants Committee, M Jagadesh Kumar announced that a total of 11,51,319 candidates had registered and 9,13,540 They have paid the CUET-UG application fee.
“1151,319 candidates registered and 913,540 CUET-UG application fees paid. Many of them are from remote and rural areas. Students from every state and union territory have applied,” he said through his tweet.
He also used the platform to ensure that CUET would now give students a fair chance because they would not bear the burden of scoring too high on board exams. “Without the burden of scoring very high in the 99-100% range on board exams, students can now try to get admission into top universities through CUET. For students who couldn’t get high board scores, earlier it wasn’t possible Getting admission in the best universities. But now it is within reach.”
Professor Kumar also spoke about how the involvement of central universities helps focus CUET UG. “The participation of so many universities is very encouraging. In the coming years, it is expected that more universities will adopt CUET.
He also hinted that there is a possibility that CUET will take place twice a year from the next academic session. “With possible CUET twice a year, this will help students to plan and attempt CUET. Best wishes to all CUET applicants.”
This comes a few days after it was announced that CUET is for postgraduate courses as well, for which registration is still ongoing.
