CUET 2022 exam is a one-stop solution for all the students who want to get admission to the elite central universities in the country.
Before the CUET 2022 exam, most of the admissions were purely based on class 12th scores which were unfair for most of the students. To put an end to this biased pattern, NTA has come up with the CUET exam.
Most of the students doubt the marking scheme of the CUET exam i.e. whether there will be negative marking in the exam or not.
Well, there is negative marking in the CUET exam but to have a deeper knowledge of it, keep on reading further.
The registration process for the CUET exam has already started on April 6, 2022. You can apply for the CUET exam by May 6, 2022.
NTA has already released the exam pattern for the CUET exam. You can easily refer to that pattern to kick start your preparation and see the areas that need more attention from your end.
This exam will be conducted over a window of four days in the first and second week of July. You have to give this exam in a computer-based mode (CBT) for two hours.
CUET exam will have overall four sections. All the sections will only comprise MCQ-type questions that you need to attempt in the stipulated time frame.
For section IA, you can choose any language from the allotted 13 languages. For this section, you will encounter overall 50 questions out of which you need to answer 40 questions in the time frame of 45 minutes.
For each language that you select in section IA, you will be given a time of 45 minutes for each language subject.
Section IB will also focus on the language subjects but, these are the foreign languages. You can choose the language from the 19 language options available in the list.
In this section also, you have to attempt any 40 questions from 50 questions in the time frame of 45 minutes. Each subject you choose in this section will be allotted 45 minutes duration.
Section II will be a domain-specific section in which you can select a maximum of 6 domains from the overall 27 domains offered for the CUET exam.
For each subject you choose in this section, you will be given a time frame of 45 minutes to attempt any 40 questions from an overall of 50 questions.
Section III will be a general section that will test your aptitude and reasoning like things. You have to attempt 60 questions out of 75 questions in overall 60 minutes.
For every correct answer, you will be awarded 5 marks but for every incorrect answer, 1 mark will be deducted. Therefore, you need to be very sure while attempting the CUET exam.
If you don’t pay heed while choosing and attempting the questions then you will ultimately hamper your entire score for the CUET exam.
Most of the students still have the notion that the CUET exam will rank them for the admission process. But, it is not the case!! CUET is not responsible for ranking the students in any aspect.
You will only get the scores based on your performance in the CUET exam. No doubt, you will have to face the negative marking criteria while giving the exam but you are not going to get any rank after it.
UGC has ordered the central universities to consider the marks scored in the CUET exam as the major criteria for making the merit list rather than going with the class 12 board exam score.
Whereas the universities have been given the flexibility to consider class 12 weightage to some extent just to formulate the merit list or use it as an eligibility criterion for the students sitting in the examination.
Besides that, universities are not allowed to give admission to the students solely based on class 12 marks. Further clarifications can only be made once the official information is out.
ALL THE BEST!
