CUET-UG 2022: Here’s when NTA will announce results, UGC chairman reveals

UGC Chairman M Jagadesh Kumar on Friday revealed that the National Testing Agency (NTA) is expected to announce CUET-UG results by September 15 or if possible, “even a couple of days earlier”.

The UGC Chairman has advised all the universities to keep their web portals ready to start the undergraduate admission process based on the CUET-UG score.

The Common University Entrance Test (CUET) is the common gateway for undergraduate admissions to all central universities.

The debut edition of the Common University Entrance Test-UG held on July 14 at test centres in over 510 cities in India and abroad.

The UGC chief had in March announced that CUET scores, and not Class 12 marks, would be mandatory for admission to 45 central universities which can fix their minimum eligibility criteria.

Kumar had clarified that students from state boards will not be at a disadvantage under the new system and the exam will not give a push to the coaching culture.

A total of 44 central universities, 12 state universities, 11 deemed universities, and 19 private universities have applied to participate in the first edition of CUET-UG for admissions in the academic session 2022-23.
