For candidates across the nation, particularly those from rural and distant locations, CUET offers a common platform and equitable possibilities.
The National Testing Agency (NTA) administers the Common University Entrance Exam (CUET), a test that is taken by all students applying to Central Universities that participate in it. It offers students a single-window option to enrol in these partnering universities across the nation, streamlining the admissions process for them and removing entrance tests of various levels of difficulty.
For candidates across the nation, particularly those from rural and distant locations, CUET offers a common platform and equitable possibilities. This will provide a method for more people to enter Central and other universities. Due to unpredictable schedule and hefty application fees, many students were unable to apply to various institutions in the past when the Central Universities held exams at their level. Also, they had to administer many exams for a single course. Yet these issues have all been resolved by CUET.
The goal of CUET is to improve the fairness of the admissions process. Equal opportunities are given for them to demonstrate their intellectual prowess. Prior to today, only the results of the 12th grade were utilised to determine admission to colleges. Many students would not get admitted to their desired colleges as a direct result of this admissions system. With the CUET, the admissions process is more comprehensive, offering every student a fair chance to enrol in their ideal university.
Moreover, CUET emphasises critical thinking. The evaluation used to be restricted to the course descriptions for the disciplines taught in high school curricula. If a student showed a preference for one subject over another, they would suffer consequences for their poor performance. The CUET combines aptitude and subject ability examinations, giving students the freedom to choose any subject based on their high school coursework and primary interests. Also, by preventing kids from engaging in rote learning, this could prove to be a pedagogical success. When moving from a subjective analysis to an objective one, it is more objective.
Pupils no longer have to worry about the deadline and may instead focus on their area of expertise. The CUET is a democratic mechanism that gives students the freedom to concentrate on their favourite subject and enrol in the college or university of their choice. By taking entrance exams in the disciplines of their choice rather than based on their achievement in class twelve, it would help students accomplish their dreams to enrol in a selected university.
