Advantages of CUCET 2021 for all CUs Across the Nation

Here are some of the advantaged of having CUCET 2021 as a common entry test for all the CUs:

Beneficial for students: CUCET will be good for students as they will have to apply and appear only for one paper. Through the single platform, students can apply for all the CUs.

A fair and equal opportunity: At present, a large number of these universities accept students on the basis of class 12 marks. This has often been a point of controversy, given that cut offs have been touching sky high marks like 99%, 100% in the recent years. This renders students with even 90%-95% without a seat. Also, different boards have skewed percentage graphs – in some education boards students easily score 90%+, whereas in others, getting such scores is not feasible. With a common entrance exam, students will get a chance to compete at a common level.

Hassle-free: Obviously, a candidate has to go through many entrance test / admission processes if they want to take admission chances in more than one university. With one test, they can apply to many Universities. Thus, one application form and one exam.
