Final decision on CUCET in the next one week or 10 days : DU official

July 2021

“We are hoping for CUCET to become a reality. The admission process is anyway going to get delayed till September, hence a central entrance exam will only bring uniformity in the admission process as boards have already adopted different marking schemes for class 12 students this year.”

“The final decision on CUCET is likely to be shared by the government in the next one week or 10 days. While we may begin the admission process in July, the intricacies of admissions such as criteria for cut-off lists, normalization of class 12 mark, can only be discussed after the board results are declared across the country. If CUCET is not implemented from this year then the university will have to devise different methods for marks normalization as boards are not following a uniform marking scheme for class 12.”

The government is yet to take a final call on the conduct of CUCET this year. The university had earlier sent a proposal to the University Grants Commission (UGC), according to which 50% weightage could be given to the class 12 marks and the rest to a CUCET score.

“We do not want a certain board’s student to have an advantage over others, hence we will make sure that the procedure to be followed are foolproof.”
