The academic council of Delhi University (DU) announced that the DU JAT entrance exam is merged with the Common Universities Entrance Test (CUET) from the academic session 2023-2023.
The university provides admissions to undergraduate programs solely based on the performance in the entrance exam.
As per the DU admission policy, all category aspirants seeking admission to DU BMS, BBE, and BBA (FIA) must appear for the NTA CUET Exam 2023.
It was observed that there is huge competition in top universities with high cut-off marks, so the exam was introduced last year to reduce the high cut-off standards for entering prestigious colleges.
Last year, we heard about DU filing a complaint and withdrawing its name from the list of Central Universities participating in admissions through the entrance exam.
However, DU has finally planned to take admission through the common entrance exam from the academic session of 2023.
There will be no impact on aspirants who have been preparing for the DU JAT exam, as the exam pattern and syllabus are almost the same. The only difference is the exam name and sectional patterns/timing of the examination.
The preparations done for the DU JAT exam are completely worth it when it comes to the CUET entrance exam, as Mathematics and English are compulsory for Common Universities Entrance Test.
The aptitude test in DU JAT is replaced by the general test in CUET. Therefore, those who have been preparing for aptitude will have an edge over others.
Appearing in the English language paper is compulsory for the majority of aspirants in the NTA CUET exam. The preparations done to date will help enhance your CUET preparation and score well in the upcoming exam.
The UGC (University Grants Commission) confirmed that the entrance exam is conducted in computer-based test (CBT) mode, i.e., online mode.
A total number of questions, syllabi, and slots for the exams have been published on the official website www.cuet.samarth.ac.in.
The Pattern of the CUET Question Paper will comprise four sections and the questions are objective-type and Input text-based questions.
The ministry of education (MoE) has concluded the Common University Entrance Test 2023 will include four sections:
Those who want to choose other languages like Kashmiri, French, Konkani, Spanish, Bodo, German, Dogri, Nepali, Maithili, Persian, Manipuri, Italian, Santhali, Arabic, Tibetian, Sindhi, Japanese, Russian, Chinese, and Sanskrit must attempt the section 1B paper.
