The Academic Council of Jawaharlal Nehru University in its 159th meeting cleared a proposal to conduct the varsity’s entrance exam through the Common Universities Entrance Test(CUET) from the academic session 2022-23.

JNU admission through CUET From 2022-23 Session

As per the council, CUET would provide a level playing field to numerous eligible students from across the country reducing the burden of taking several entrance examinations.

Criticisms against the move-

  • As per, JNU Students’ Union, JNU offers programmes and courses that are unique to the university, and a ‘one size fits all’ approach of CUET will be detrimental in this regard.
  • CUET will lead to JNU losing autonomy over the setting of question papers and declaration of results.
  • CUET lacks transparency as it indicates pass/fail instead of displaying the student’s grade. 
  • CUET with a centralized institutional set up, makes (any) redressal an elaborate procedure, further pushing aspirants belonging to the marginalized communities to deeper margins


The Common Universities Entrance Test (CUET) is an all-India test, organized for admission to various Integrated/Under-Graduate, Post Graduate, and Research Programmes in several Central Universities and State Universities of India. From its inception in 2010 till 2020, the CUCET was conducted/coordinated by the Central University of Rajasthan. The National Testing Agency took over the conduct of these exams in 2021. All Question papers are in MCQ Format.
