What After Filling Out the CUET Form?

The selection process for CUET begins once the exams are over and the CUET results are declared. All the UG admissions will only be done on the basis of the CUET scorecard of the candidate. Ensure the following details after you have successfully filled out the CUET application form.

  • Download the CUET admit card and check for any discrepancies. If any error is found, immediately inform the authorities.
  • Appear for the exam on the exact exam date and center as notified in the admit card.
  • Validate your answers once the official provisional answer key is released by NTA.
  • Use the grievance redressal mechanism, for any issues you may have found in the answer key.
  • Once the results are announced, Students must download their CUET scorecard. Then register for the CSAS portal of the respective universities they might be targeting, and participate in the subsequent counseling process for admissions.
  • In 2023, DU considered the class 12th marks of the candidate in case of a tie in their CUET score (two or more students with the same CUET score opting for the same course and college). DU then considered the class 12 Board marks (best of 3, 4, and 5 consecutively), and even a tie then the older student gets the seat. Therefore, there is a certain importance for the Board marks too if a student is aiming for DU UG admission.

CUET 2024 is a student's chance to prove their merit and secure admission to the college of their dreams.
