CUET UG 2023

  • The National Testing Agency has been entrusted with the responsibility of conducting the Undergraduate Entrance Tests for all the Central Universities (CUs) for the academic session 2023-2024.

What is CUET?


  • CUET stands for Common University Entrance Test. So, from the name itself, it clarifies its definition. CUET will be acting as a single window for the students willing to take admission to the undergraduate courses of different central universities across the country. 
  • In the previous years, it has been noticed that many central universities have sky-rocketing cut-offs for admission to undergraduate courses, including Delhi University.
  • The reason behind this is the different sorts of evaluation processes in different boards such as CBSE, CISCE, and other state boards, which makes it unfair for the students to get admitted to their preferred universities, due to the wide diversity of evaluation patterns. 
  • So to streamline the process of undergraduate admission to different central universities across India, the National Testing Agency (NTA) has decided to start this common entrance test CUET, whose main focus will be “One India One Exam”.

Number of Sections for CUET Exam 2023


Section IA and Section IB are language sections, Section II has domain-specific subjects, and Section III is  the general test.


Section IA


Section IA will be offering 13 languages that are Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Gujarati, Odiya, Bengali, Assamese, Punjabi, English, Hindi, and Urdu. Students can select any of these languages as their preferred language for the first section. 

  • Section IB will offer 20 languages which are French, Spanish, German, Nepali, Persian, Italian, Arabic, Sindhi, Sanskrit, Kashmiri, Konkani, Bodo, Dogri, Maithili, Manipuri, Santhali, Tibetan, Japanese, Russian, Chinese. For this students can also choose any language from Section IA, but not mentioned in Section I B, but make sure you don’t choose any language twice.
  • The languages chosen in Section IA and Section IB must be the languages that the students had in their class 12 board examination.
  • There will be 50 questions in each language section which is Section IA and Section IB. Students need to attempt 40 questions from each of these sections. 45 minutes will be given to complete each of the sections which means 45 minutes for Section IA and another 45 minutes for Section IB. 
  • All of these questions will be multiple choice questions which will provide the students with different options from which the students will have to select the correct or the most appropriate one. In these sections, the knowledge of the students will be tested through reading comprehension. The comprehensions will be based on different types of passages such as factual passage, literary and narrative passage, etc. The main objective of these two sections is to check the knowledge depth of the students by testing their literary aptitude, vocabulary.


Section II 


Section II has 27 domain specific subjects to be chosen from. From these 27 domain subjects, the candidates need to choose a maximum number of 6 domains for this particular exam. These domain specific subjects are 1) Accountancy/Book Keeping, 2) Biology / Biological Studies / Biotechnology / Biochemistry, 3) Business studies, 4) Anthropology 5) Computer Science / Informatics Practices, 6) Economics / Business Economics 7) Engineering Graphics 8) Entrepreneurship 9) Geography / Geology, 10) History, 11) Mathematics, 12) Knowledge Tradition and Practices of India, 13) Legal Studies, 14) Environmental Science, 15) Home Science, 16) Sociology, 17) Physics, 18) Fine Arts / Visual Arts (Sculpture/ Painting) / Commercial Arts, 19) Psychology, 20) Physical Education / NCC / Yoga, 21) Teaching Aptitude, 22) Agriculture, 23) Drama – Theatre, 24) Chemistry, 25) Political Science, 26)  Performing Arts – (i) Dance (Kathak / Bharatnatyam / Oddisi / Kathakali / Kuchipudi / Manipuri (ii) Music General (Hindustani/ Carnatic/ Rabindra Sangeet/ Percussion/ Non-Percussion) (iii) Mass Media / Mass Communication, 27) Sanskrit.


  • If the subject in which any applicant wants to pursue his/her graduation, is not mentioned in the domain, the candidate may choose the domain subject which is the closest and relates the most to his/her preferred subject choice. For example, if any candidate wants to study Biochemistry in his/her undergraduate course, then he/she may choose Biology as the domain subject.
  • Section II will also be consisting of 50 questions out of which 40 need to be answered. The time provided for each domain-specific subject will be 45 minutes. Students need to complete each section within this specific time period.


Section III


Section III is concerned with testing the general knowledge of the examinees. This section is for any such undergraduate programs which are offered by some universities, where general testing is considered for admission. In this section, there will be 75 questions given out of which the examinees will have to attempt 60 Questions. The time provided for this section is normally more than the time offered for the other sections due to the more number of questions to be attempted. So the time provided to complete this section is 60 minutes which is 1 hour. The syllabus for this section will be covering General Knowledge, Current Affairs, General Mental Ability, Numerical Ability, Quantitative Reasoning (the simple application of basic mathematical concepts arithmetic/algebra geometry/mensuration/stat taught up to Grade 8) Logical, and Analytical Reasoning

  • According to the notice published by the National Testing Agency (NTA), students can use input text for multiple-choice questions (MCQs). The questions will be purely based on the class 12 NCERT syllabus, so there will be no need of preparing separately for this exam. The ones who have prepared well for their class 12 board exam are likely to perform well enough in CUET. 
  • The National Testing Agency (NTA) has also kept in mind the thought of the students who wish to pursue graduation in different branches of Sanskrit. So they have asked those students who want to choose Shastri in Veda, Paurohitya (Karmakand), Dharamshastra, Prachin Vyakarana, Navya Vyakarana, Phalit Jyotish, Siddhant Jyotish, Vastushastra, Sahitya, Puranetihas, Prakrit Bhasha, Prachin Nyaya Vaisheshik, Sankhya Yoga, Jain Darshan, Mimansa, AdvaitaVedanta, Vishihstadvaita Vedanta, Sarva Darshan, to choose Sanskrit as the domain subject.
  • The students who will choose Sanskrit as their domain subject in Section II, their Reading Comprehension (based on different types of passages–Factual, Literary and Narrative, [Literary Aptitude and Vocabulary] will get tested in Section IB.
  • The National Testing Agency (NTA) has also given the students the privilege to choose 3 instead of 2 languages from Section IA and Section IB taken together. But then the 3rd language chosen will be in lieu of the 6th domain subject selected by the candidate. 
  • Let’s simplify this by saying, in the first rule, a candidate can give tests of a total of 9 papers, that are, 2 languages for Section IA and Section IB, 6 domain subjects, and 1 general test. And in the second rule, the number of papers remains the same but the distribution changes to 3 languages for Section IA and Section IB, 5 domain subjects, and 1 general test.
  • Thus the National Testing Agency (NTA) has given the flexibility to the applicants to choose the papers as per their choice. 
  • Applicants are also given the flexibility and scope to apply to many universities, but they must qualify the eligibility conditions of the particular universities they will be applying for. 


So in a nutshell, the exam format of the CUET (UG) exam 2023 is as follows –


Section IA – 1 language out of 13 languages, 

Section IB – 1 language out of 20 languages, 

Section II – 6 (maximum) domain subjects out of 27 domains,

Section III – 1 general test.


45 minutes will be given for each language subject and domain subject, and 60 minutes will be given for the Section III paper for the general test.
