CUET TO BE BASED ON SYLLABUS OF CLASS 12TH
On March 29, the chairman of the University Grand Commission, UGC, M Jagadesh Kumar, said that the syllabus of the upcoming Common University Entrance Test, CUET 2022, will be completely based on the syllabus of Class 12. He further added that there would be no questions asked about the Class 11 syllabus. The UGC chairman has said that CUET will neither make the board exams irrelevant nor give a push to “coaching culture.””The universities will still use board exams as qualifying criteria. Some universities can peg the requirement at 60 percent, some may choose to set 70 percent as a requirement, so there is no question of board exams being made irrelevant,” he said.
