What is CUET?
CUET is a test that has been around for a while. The exam, which was previously known as the Central Institutions Common Entrance Test (CUCET), was launched in 2010 for admission to undergraduate, integrated postgraduate, and diploma/certificate courses at seven central universities. Although the exam was previously optional for admission to central universities, including Delhi University and Visva-Bharati, the Union education ministry has now made it essential for admission to these institutions. 57 core universities and other institutions will take part in the National Testing Agency's Computer Based Test (CBT) in 2022, which will be conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA).
For admission to universities through CUET (UG) - 2022, the existing policies of each university regarding quota, category, relaxation, reservations, qualification, subject combinations, preferences, and so on will apply.
Candidates are recommended to consult the university website to which they are applying for their individual programmes because the qualifying conditions for admission may differ from one university to the next.
Before applying, candidates should ensure that they meet the eligibility requirements of the university to which they are applying.
A candidate's mere participation in the entrance test or achievement of pass marks does not enable him/her to be considered for admission to the programme unless he/she meets the program-specific eligibility requirements of the university to which they are applying.
Change of stream will not be a problem with the CUET system.
Students wishing to switch majors are perplexed in the wake of the introduction of the Common University Entrance Test (CUET). In the absence of any preparation, students are baffled as to how they will pass the admission exam for the second stream. UGC, on the other hand, asserts that students will still have the option to switch majors even if they take the CUET. According to Delhi University administrators, the process of changing majors is now easier than it has ever been. If the stream is changed, the pupils will not suffer any consequences.
Exams can be given in the subject
According to Prof. M Jagdish Kumar, the head of the University Grants Commission, when it comes to the topic of changing one's stream, the commission has decided that students can take exams for up to six domain subjects. If you are a scientific student who wishes to pursue a degree in any humanities subject at the graduate level, you can take exams in the subjects that you studied in class 12 to fulfill your goal.
Students can also take an exam in a subject from a different area. The student might choose his or her domain subject by taking into consideration the eligibility requirements of the university to which he or she want to get admission. When a student applies for admission to Political Science, Prof. Jagdish points out that the university can pick him or her on the basis on their General Test result as well, regardless of whether or not they studied Political Science in their secondary education. Every university, on the other hand, will establish its own policies and procedures in this regard. With the National Education Policy (NEP), we hope to encourage students to pursue a multi-disciplinary education.
Subject not in the list!
It's possible for students to take the exam of a similar subject even if the one they studied in 12th grade is not on the list of CUET. Instead of biochemistry, consider biology. Twenty-three languages will be spoken during CUCET Section-1A: English; Urdu; Gujarati; Marathi; Tamil; and Telugu. The need for a test in one language is inevitable. Section-1B will provide an additional language option of 19 languages, including French, Italian, Nepali, German, Manipuri, and Chinese, among others.
Students will be able to take a test in six of the 27 domain courses in Section-2. Section-3 contains a General Test, which must be passed. Students will be able to enter the building in two separate shifts. There will be two domain subjects and one general test in the first shift section-1A. Four domain subjects and an additional language test can be administered in the second shift if the student so desires. The CUET subject list and exam schedule will be made public very shortly by the National Testing Agency (NTA). The first week of April is when students can apply for undergraduate admission at 45 central universities.
Steps to consider before changing your stream
• Make a plan first, and then make a decision.
Is it necessary to make a change?
Is it possible that this adjustment will make your life better?
How well will you be able to cope with the unexpected change and keep up with an already established student?
Is there room for growth in this new field?
• Consult with professionals
If you want to change streams, talk to specialists in that discipline about new fields and future scope. This will help you decide if that field is right for you. This phase is critical because individuals on the ground will be able to provide a more accurate picture of how things work.
• Additional training and knowledge
When changing streams, you may need to work harder than students who have already completed their Bachelor's degree. Preparing for your Master's degree requires familiarizing yourself with basic ideas. As a result, you should enroll in and finish some required courses in your field.
• Work experience
Having work experience in your field of study can help when switching streams. This can help you learn more about your chosen field and improve your chances of acceptance.
