With the ever-rising cut-offs, the best of the Central Universities (like the University of Delhi) was getting out of reach for many. Moreover, as there was no uniformity among the various examination Boards regarding syllabus and difficulty, students from some of the boards got an undue advantage.

This exam will provide a single-window opportunity for the candidates for admission to different courses of the participating central universities across the country.
Now, it is essential for all aspirants to know the CUET Exam Pattern so that they can develop an effective exam strategy to ace NTA CUET 2022. The CUET entrance exam will be held online as CBT (Computer Based Test). The duration of the exam will be 3 hours 15 minutes or 3 hours 45 minutes on the basis of the slot you have selected.
