The Common University Entrance Test (CUET)-UG was canceled last week and will now take place from August 24-28. Admission to all undergraduate courses at the university will be through CUET.
Classes for freshmen will now begin the first or second week of October. The university previously planned to start classes by the end of September.
The university’s Common Seating Allocation System (CSAS) portal is also expected to open by the third week of August for applicants to complete applications. Admission through CSAS will occur in three phases – submission of the CSAS 2022 application form, program selection and filling in preferences, and allocation of places and admission. The CUET score is required in the second phase. It is in this phase of the admissions process that CUET (UG) results are required.
A candidate will have to select the programs in which he wishes to be admitted. They will be required to confirm the program-specific CUET Merit Rating (UG) for all selected programs.
In the third phase, seats will be allocated on a merit list.
This is the first time that admissions to the university will be through an entrance test.
The University Grants Commission (UGC) had announced in March that it would be mandatory for all central universities to admit students through CUET.
