Universities implementing CUET 2022 must register on the NTA website: Chairman of the UGC

Universities that want to use the Common Universities Entrance Test (CUET 2022) as an admission criterion must register on the National Testing Agency’s (NTA) website. Universities are not required to pay any fees to the NTA/UGC and are not required to sign an MoU with the NTA/UGC, according to UGC chairperson Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar on his official Twitter feed.

Universities can also cross-check CUET 2022 results against NTA data, which will be made available to them during the admissions process, he tweeted.


For admission, the Common Universities Entrance Test 2022 will be held in 13 languages: English, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Hindi, Gujarati, Marathi, Odiya, Bengali, Assamese, Punjabi, and Urdu. The undergraduate syllabus is based on subject understanding at the class 12 level, regardless of affiliation to any board such as CBSE, making a desirable change for students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, informed Minister of State for Education, Dr. Subhas Sarkar, in a written reply in the Lok Sabha.

The Common Universities Entrance Test (CUET) 2022 registration period will begin on Wednesday, April 6, and finish on May 6. Applicants from all around the country can register on the official websites — cuet.samarth.ac.in, nta.nic.in.


The University Grants Commission funds 45 core universities (UGC). CUET results can be used for admissions to state universities, private institutions, and deemed universities. CUET applicants can contact NTA at [email protected] with any questions or clarifications.
