UGC asks universities to use CUET scores for UG admissions: The University Grants Commission (UGC) has written to vice-chancellors of all central universities and colleges, requesting that students be admitted to undergraduate programmes using CUET scores.

M Jagadesh Kumar, the chairperson of the UGC, announced on Monday that CUET results, not Class 12 scores, will be required for admission to 45 central universities. The minimal eligibility standards for central universities can be set by them.

“Today we have written to the VCs, directors, and principals of all universities and colleges to use CUET scores for admissions in their UG programs because with CUET in place there is no need for students to worry about writing multiple entrance tests,” Kumar tweeted on Sunday.

According to Kumar, state universities, private universities, and deemed-to-be universities can all use CUET scores for undergraduate and postgraduate admissions.
