The University Grants Commission (UGC) announced Thursday that a common entrance test will be held for admission to postgraduate programmes in 42 central universities from the upcoming academic year.

The two-hour-long entrance test will be held in the last week of July, UGC chairperson Prof M Jagadesh Kumar said, as he launched the application window for the test which will be anchored by the National Testing Agency (NTA).

Till the 2021-22

academic session, only 14 central universities, which came up in 2009, used CUET to admit students in PG courses. While 42 universities have now decided to adopt the common test, it has not been made mandatory.

“CUET-PG is introduced for the first time in the university system and is expected to provide a single window opportunity to the students to apply to different universities. Although not mandatory, most central universities will participate in CUET,” Kumar said.
