Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) has announced that it will allow admission to postgraduate and advanced diploma courses in the skills program through the Common University Entrance Test (CUET), while the University of Delhi (DU) and Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) have announced. They will not conduct the admission process through CUET-PG this year.
DU and JMI officials said that the admission process for postgraduate courses for the 2022-23 academic year has already started and it would not be possible to change the process with such a small notice.
M Jagdesh Kumar, chairman of the University Grants Commission (UGC), said on Thursday that CUET for PG admissions would be launched from the 2022 academic year. However, he added that unlike CUET-UG, CUET-PG is not mandatory for central universities.
“NTA will conduct postgraduate entrance examinations for 42 central and participating universities for the 2022-2023 academic year. CUET will provide single-window opportunities for students to enroll in participating universities across the country, ”said the UGC chairman.
The CUET-PG exam at JNU will be held in the third week of July. The application process started on Friday and will end on June 18.
