What Exactly is  CUCET?

Central Universities in India are established by an Act of Parliament and have been under the purview of the Department of Higher Education in the Ministry of Education

Universities in India are generally recognized by the University Grants Commission (UGC), which receives its power from the University Grants Commission Act, of 1956. 15 Professional Councils have been established to control different aspects of accreditation and coordination.

Furthermore, central universities are governed by the Central Universities Act, 2009, which governs the purpose, powers, and governance of all CUs. CUCET was known as the Central Universities Common Entrance Test for admission to different programs of  12 participating Central Universities. It provided a single-window opportunity for the students to seek admission to those participating institutes across the country.

What is the Difference Between CUCET and CUET?

There is not a lot of difference between CUEt and CUCET. CUET is just the new form of CUCET. Now that it has been made mandatory, it is known as CUET. Before, 20010, when a common entrance test was implemented it wasn’t compulsory amongst all central universities in India. They have changed the name now that it has been made compulsory.

Hence, the CUET is not a brand-new exam. The test, originally known as the CUCET (Central University Common Entrance Test), was introduced in 2010 for admission to 1,500 undergraduate, postgraduate, and integrated programs at seven central institutions. The Union Education Ministry, on the other hand, has made the test essential for admission to central institutions.
