The National Testing Agency has been assigned the task of conducting the Central University Entrance Test (CUET) for Post Graduate programs in 2022. For admission to different programs of the participating Central Universities, CUET will provide a single-window opportunity for the students to seek admission to these participating Universities / Institutes across the country.

In 2022, as a part of National Education Policy 2020, CUET was introduced making it compulsory for all 45 central universities to adopt it. Admission to various Undergraduate, Integrated, Postgraduate, Diploma, Certification courses and Research Programmes in Central Universities of India will be provided through this. It is also accepted by a number of other State Universities and deemed to be university in India. 

After the CUCET 2022 Counseling, candidates are offered admission to these programs based on their entrance exam scores. This move will represent a significant departure from the regular college entrance tests.
