1. Helps secure more Marks

Studies show that students tend to score more marks when taking the exam in a vernacular medium. That, in turn, shows us that domain knowledge is not limited to those fluent in English or even Hindi.

RSS has demanded that all competitive examinations of the country be conducted in the mother tongue or Bharatiya language. In the coming years, this can be implemented.

2. More opportunities for Rural Students 

When exams are conducted in a vernacular medium, students from smaller towns and rural areas can compete with other students from urban areas who are good in English or Hindi. This will help the evaluators pick the correct students and make better assessments of the students.

When CUET is conducted in these many languages, it encourages students nationwide to study. This will also promote the equality of languages.
