Jamia Millia Islamia adopts CUET for 8 of 59 undergraduate courses | Delhi News

NEW DELHI: Jamia Millia Islamia has decided to adopt the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) to admit students to eight of its 59 undergraduate programs for the 2022-23 academic session.
The CUET programs are BA(H) History, Economics, Hindi, Sanskrit, French and Francophone Studies, Spanish and Latin American Studies, BSc Biotechnology and BVoc Solar Energy, announced Monday Jamie. The 59 programs include courses in engineering and dentistry (BDS) for which admissions will continue to be made respectively through a Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) and a National Entrance Test of eligibility (NEET). For the remaining classes, Jamia will hold its own entrance.
Being a minority institution, Jamia has its own admissions process. However, the University Grants Commission recently clarified that all central universities, including minority institutions, should adopt CUET starting this year. Other minority institutions in the city, such as Delhi University’s St Stephen’s College, have yet to make an announcement.
According to Jamia’s notification, “It was decided at a meeting attended by senior university officials that admissions for certain undergraduate courses would be through CUET. The university communicated much the same thing to the University Grants Commission and the National Testing Agency.
How the CUET score will be calculated for the university has yet to be released, but Jamia clarified the minimum eligibility criteria. For the eight CUET courses, the minimum eligibility is not less than 50% marks overall or in specific subjects. For Economics and Hindi, it is 50% of the total marks of the top five papers. For the bachelor’s degree in biotechnology, eligibility is 50% of the marks in each science subject — physics, chemistry and biology/mathematics. Solar Energy BVoc requires an applicant to have passed Class XII with 50% marks and studied Physics and Mathematics.
Applicants for these eight courses must complete online forms from CUET and Jamia. “Students are advised to follow the university’s website for updates regarding courses and other details. BTech aspirants are required to complete the JEE form as well as the Jamia form,” the university said.
