One of the most renowned national-level entrance exams, the Central University Entrance Test or CUET 2022, is just around the corner. Every year, thousands of aspirants take the exam with high hopes of getting admission to their desired university and preferred course.
Most students qualify in a single attempt, while some fail to do that. Still, aspirants can take the exam more than once to try their luck and achieve their desired goal. But if you don’t know how many attempts you can make and how many times the CUET test can be taken, this article by PrepGuru is for you!
What is the CUET Exam?
Common University Entrance Test or CUET (UG) is a national-level entrance exam for admission to various undergraduate courses offered by the Central Universities. It will give a single window opportunity to aspirants looking for admission to any of the country’s Central Universities (CUs).
It will guarantee that students from rural backgrounds, coming from various financial conditions and geographically distributed in the country, be treated as standard. Due to the increasing number of applicants, CUET might be conducted twice every six months from the next session.
The NTA or National Testing Agency has been entrusted with the responsibility of directing the Undergraduate entrance tests for every one of the Central Universities (CUs) for the upcoming academic session 2022-2023. The NTA is the sole governing and management body for the exam across the nation.
Number of CUET Attempts
Generally, The CUET exam is taken by students who have recently qualified for the Class 12 board exams and seek admission to Undergraduate courses. Class 12th qualification is the minimum eligibility criteria for taking the exam. Thus, the NTA only allows those students to attempt the exam who meet this eligibility criterion.
The NTA has not specified any exact number of attempts the aspirant can make. However, they should fulfill all the eligibility criteria for the exam every year. The candidate must submit a new application for their preferred courses and universities at every attempt.
The NTA also allows the students of previous years of class 12 to take the CUET test in the current year. Students who are repeating Class 12 or have dropped a year for preparation are also eligible to take the next CUET exam. A student can make multiple attempts until and unless they have taken admission to any other UG course.
New Changes in CUET 2022
Here are a few changes that the NTA has made for CUET 2022 exam;
- The exam name is changed from Central Universities Common Entrance Test (CUCET) to Central University Entrance Test (CUET)
- NTA will conduct the exam in 13 different languages
- The question paper of CUET 2022 will incorporate an obligatory language test, two subject-specific tests, and a general aptitude test.
- CUET 2022 scores will be acknowledged by 53 Central Universities and Private Universities rather than only 12 Central Universities, which were the participating universities last year.
