It has just been a few weekssince we learned that CUCET is now CUET – Common University Entrance Test. But still, there is confusion among the students regarding the syllabus and other aspects. Besides, NTA has started the registration process for CUET 2022.

Thus, before you apply for the exam, you need to be clear with CUET, CUET Syllabus, CUET Exam Pattern and the exam difficulty level. In this blog, we have provided all the information required about CUET. Let us start with it.

What is CUET?

Earlier recognised as Central Universities Common Entrance Test – CUCET is now called CUET. CUET or Common Universities Entrance Test is a national-level entrance test conducted for admissions to undergraduate programmes at 45 central universities and other participating institutions like Jamia Millia Islamia, Delhi University, University of Allahabad etc.


A cut-off trend was followed at several Central Universities, Delhi University, and other institutions. For admissions to undergraduate programs, candidates had to meet the sky-rocketing cut-offs, which resulted in high competition.

Besides, the experts stated that all the education boards have different evaluation systems, making it unfair for the students to apply to the universities. To end the wide diversity in evaluation systems, CUET has been introduced, which will neutralise the admission process.
