- Section III comprises General Test.
- For choosing Languages from Section IA and IB and domain specific Subjects from Section II and General Test under Section III, the Candidate must refer to the requirements of his/her intended University.
Guidelines are that all questions in various testing areas will be benchmarked at the level of Class XII only. This means, that questions will be asked from the 10th 11th and 12th.
If any University permits students of previous years of class XII to take admission in the current year also, such students would also be eligible to appear in CUET (UG)
The languages/subjects chosen should generally be those that a student chose in his most recent Class XII Board examination. However, if a university allows flexibility in this area, it can be used under CUET (UG) -2022 as well. In this regard, candidates must carefully review the eligibility requirements of various Central Universities. Furthermore, if the subject to be studied in the Undergraduate course is not available from the list of 27 Domain-Specific Subjects available, the Candidate may select the Subject that is closest to his or her preference, for example, The candidate can choose Biology instead of Biochemistry for Biochemistry.
Depending on the number of candidates and the languages/tests they take, the examination will be conducted over several days in two shifts.
