CUET-PG 2023 receives record 5 lakh applications

NEW DELHI: A record 5 lakh students have already applied for CUET-PG 2023, up from 3.75 lakh last year. The deadline for online applications is ending on Thursday night.
The number of participating universities which will admit students based on CUET scores has also increased more than three times compared to last year — from 66 to 195 higher educational institutions.
The increase in number of participating HEIs will come as a relief to many aspirants who otherwise would have sat for different tests and made multiple applications.
Earlier this year, University Grants Commission had appealed to the universities to join the common entrance test. The test is mandatory for the central universities (CU).
Apart from the 39 CUs, a total of 46 State Universities, 101 private deemed universities and 10 government funded HEIs have joined the test this year.
One candidate can apply up to 20 subject areas of study and as many HEIs he/ she desires. According to a senior official of National Testing Agency, “With majority of the candidates applying for multiple subjects and are expected to take the test in those, the total number of test takers that way is expected to cross 9 lakh. The total number of unique candidates are expected to be around 5 lakh by the end of the application deadline. Already, 4.5 lakh candidates have completed the application process, including payment of the fees.”
The exams are scheduled from June 5 to 12, 2023.
