In the previous three years, he stated, “The last dates for admissions in the University of Delhi were as follows: 31.08.2019 (2019–20), 15.01.2021 (2020–2021), and 31.12.2021 (2021–2022).”
A group of experts, comprised of professors from the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and other central universities, was also established, according to Sarkar, to make recommendations for how to carry out the CUET in the upcoming years.
With 14.9 lakh registrations for undergraduate admissions across all central universities, CUET surpassed JEE Mains to become the second-largest entrance exam in the nation.
