How will the CUET (UG) 2022 entrance exam become a great social equalizer?Team Altis Vortex
The UGC has now made it mandatory for all the central universities to admit students to their undergraduate programs exclusively on the merit of the score of a single common entrance test, CUET, to be conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA).
The “One Nation One Examination” idea is being purported to be proposed by the National Education Policy 2020. Despite arguing for the requirement that the entrance examination follows a common principle, NEP 2020 emphasizes the need to do so “with due consideration of diversity and university autonomy”.
CUET is the Central Universities Entrance Test which is going to be conducted every year by National Testing Agency (NTA). It is a computerized entrance examination for admission to 45 central universities of India, and some other universities and institutions too, including Jamia Milia, TISS, etc. Students aiming to study undergraduate programs in central universities have to appear in the CUET exam which is mandatory.

According to the experts, this is because CBSE, CISCE, and the different state boards in India all have different evaluation patterns, which makes it unfair for students applying to central universities with a wide diversity in evaluation patterns.

This test symbolizes the conceptual understanding and the ability to apply knowledge, and a single exam to take admission to your dream University.
