The University Grants Commission (UGC) is trying to merge NEET, JEE, and CUET into a single exam called the Common University Entrance Test (CUET-UG). The commission has also issued a proposal to include the NEET and JEE exams in the CUET.
The UGC will form a committee and consult with various stakeholders to move the plan ahead. According to the proposal, students can choose from a variety of study subjects, but they can only take the exam once.
For the time being, students must pass the NEET and JEE examinations to be admitted into engineering and medical colleges, respectively, and the CUET exam to be accepted into degree programmes in the art, sciences, and business.
How NEET-JEE merge into CUET will benefit students?
Students will benefit from this suggestion’s easiness. Students will only need to show up for one exam (CUET). Students will use their CUET scores to get admission to a variety of disciplines.
Students can enrol in medical, engineering, mathematics, the arts, business administration, and other programmes with their CUTE scores. By doing this, the issue of overlap in significant national admission tests will be resolved.
Students won’t have to deal with scheduling conflicts like exam centers and dates.
