cuet pg exam 2024 details and dates

What is the CUET Exam?

There are thousands of universities across India in which millions of students are enrolled in different programmes. The Ministry of Education along with the Government of India established the NTA (National Testing Agency) which is an independent and autonomous testing organisation. NTA is assigned with the task of conducting CUET (Central University Entrance Test) for both graduate and postgraduate programmes for students to take admissions in different programmes in central universities.

Purpose of the CUET-PG Exam

The presence of CUET as a testing platform has set a uniform standard to assess the competency of different candidates that apply for admissions in postgraduate programmes to premier higher education, central universities. It serves as a common portal for students who wish to be part of esteemed postgraduate programmes in the top universities of the country. Let’s say you have 3 institutions as your top choices in mind that you would like to apply for in case of pursuing a postgraduate degree in your desired field. So now, with CUET-PG, rather than applying individually for each institution, you can just apply for all the institutions at once if they are enrolled under CUET-PG. Your score will determine your rank which will further show your competency and eligibility for any university.

  • Once you are aware of the syllabus, prepare a timetable for yourself. Divide each section into short goals and assign a deadline for finishing each of these goals.
  • Go online and look offline for all the mock tests that you may find. This will prepare you in terms of time management and you will also get an idea of the pattern being followed in the exam.
  • Prepare and focus a lot on your domain-specific subjects as they carry more weight.
  • Be calm during the exam. Choose what section you wish to go for first and then calmly attempt the questions. Skip the questions that you are finding at the moment and come back to them later if you have some time left to attempt them again.
  • Maintain an active lifestyle. Make sure to take proper meals, and breaks between study sessions and keep yourself motivated.
