Summary: After the completion of CUET, reports of many glitches and inconsistencies in execution led NTA to take action and correct them in the upcoming CUET exam. Does this mean, You will be able to select fewer courses? Or The number of test centres will be reduced? To get the answers, go through the complete article.
NTA Chief Vineet Joshi has confirmed that major changes will be made before the execution of CUET 2024.
However, the exam of CUET was conducted successfully last year, but there were many glitches seen in the exam, and also, the dates had to be postponed multiple times. Due to complaints from many students and critics, the decision to form a special committee had been formed led by the Vice Chancellor of Punjab University to erase the possible mistakes for the upcoming CUET exam.
So the final decision is yet to be declared, but here is a glimpse of what are the possible changes for CUET 2024.
CUET 2024 was a big entrance test, and with a high number of applicants, the competition level of this exam would be very high. This will indirectly push students towards coaching institutes.
Thus the decision to limit the combination will balance the overall number of combinations and also manage different merging CUET syllabus.
According to the CUET 2024 exam, students could choose any combination of subjects. Out of 33 Language and 27 domain-specific subjects, students were allowed to choose a total of 9 subjects. This led to a total of 45000+ unique combinations.
Probably this year, in CUET 2024, students opting for commerce will be allowed to choose 3-4 subjects rather than 61 subjects.
So the CUET 2024 will have less number of total combinations of subjects and hence will be less hassle for the NTA.
