Summary: 

Since CUET was conducted for the first time, it was assumed students would face issues while filling out the CUET application.

The correction window was open several times last year.

However, NTA might not be generous with the number of times they open the correction window next year, be vigilant while filling out your CUET Application next year!

We hear that the CUET exam is expected to be conducted twice next year. So the first set of CUET Application forms will be available at the beginning of the year. 

The exam was earlier known as CUCET. However, the exam name, pattern, admission policy, and syllabus of almost everything about the examination have changed. 

On scrolling through the Quora platform, it was sadly surprising to see many students facing issues while applying for courses in participating universities.

Many students did not fill in the correct course details or were unaware of the list of CUET colleges or courses, exam patterns, etc., and had to wait to correct them during the correction window period. 

NTA would have foreseen these issues and reopened the correction window several times for students. However, students had to always keep an eye on the correction window instead of fully dedicating their time to preparations. 

Next year, we might not have correction windows reopened repeatedly. So here is a list of mistakes to avoid during CUET Application Process 2023.

Mistakes to Avoid During CUET Application Process 2023

With closely helping CUET students willing the application form, we have curated a few mistakes you might want to avoid while filling out your application. 

Our expert from SuperGrads has explained the detailed CUET Application process you can follow to fill out the form. We would highly suggest you watch it. 

1 - Not checking the Application Guide on the official website.

To make your life easier, NTA has already curated a set of guidelines you must follow before you fill out the application form. 

Visit the official website of CUET UG to read through the information from the "Application Guide," as shown below.

2 - Not having a clear idea of the course and college to study

After uploading your Educational documents, you will be asked to fill in the university name and program, as shown below. Not having a clear idea of the course you want to study and if it's offered in the college you desire you study can put you in a pickle. 

CUET Application Guide

To fill this correctly, know which stream you prefer to continue your studies and if the college you apply to offers it. You will have to pay extra charges to apply for extra courses, but it's highly suggested you add as many courses and colleges in order of priority; this can help you understand the exam pattern, which you will need to fill later in the application form. This how to add the university and preffered course of choice.

Your choices must be made as per preferences of your choices in chronological order.

3 - Not knowing the CUET exam pattern

Know the exam pattern in advance once you have decided on the course and college you wish to study. You MUST take a look at the exam pattern as it differs for each course in each college. 

As per the college and course, you have chosen to fill out the option correctly. Remember, if this step is filled incorrectly, your candidature will be rejected without a doubt.

4 - Blindly copying your friend's application

While most of the application forms can be filled out commonly for other entrances, CUET is quite different. Your choice of college and course plays can majorly change your application entries. 

So take help from experts and don't blindly follow the colleges, exam patterns, and courses from your friend's application. 

5 - Not knowing the course offered in the participating university 

Did you know JMI had opted for CUET entrance only for 10 UG programs offered by the college?

So if you want to study a program not offered through CUET, you must know another admission process is followed for admission, not CUET. 

Ensure you visit the CUET official and college websites to learn accurate information before filling out the application.

6 - Not knowing the seat matrix to estimate admission to the desired college

Let's face the truth! Not everybody can study at Delhi University, right? So it's better to be reasonable with yourself and understand each college and its seat matrix.

Only after performing this research should you fill the college/ course as per the priority of your preference.

7 - Filling CUET applications without verifying 10 and 12th scorecard

Students do not often commit the mistake of incorrectly filing important particulars. However, note that there is a limitation to the fields you can correct during the correction window. 

You can have different names filled incorrectly in your documents, but the particulars in your 10 and 12 certificates will be affected. 

Therefore, be sure to fill in the particulars as per the 10 and 12th scorecards uploaded earlier in the application.

8 - Not having the important document handy

Not having the important document handy. Luckily, most documents have been received online, so losing the certificates is unlikely. 

However, ensure you place everything in one folder so you don't have to keep looking for the documents. 

Keep all these documents handy, and only then sit down to fill out the application. 

The important documents to keep handy are as follows: 

  • Photograph
  • Signature 
  • Migrant Certificate
  • Class 10 scorecard
  • Class 12 scorecard
  • Caste certificate
  • Adhar Card
  • Caste Certificate
  • Other Certificates like Sports Quota, Minority Quota, Army Quota, Special Provision, etc. 

These documents must be uploaded in the correct size, between 50 kb–300 kb.

Preview your document, and look out to correct the errors (if any) before the final submission.
