National Testing Agency (NTA) announced this news on April 6, 2022.
Most of the students were of the notion that getting brilliant marks in class 12 exams will help them get admission to their dream central university.
But, NTA has made this clear that this formula of considering the class 12 marks for admission is being scrapped for this year with the commencement of CUET 2022.
UGC has also made it clear that CUET 2022 will be held based on the NCERT curriculum of class 12.

Why CUET 2022 is an issue in Tamil Nadu state?
You must be wondering that if CUET 2022 is a unified examination for all the students to take admission to Central Universities, then why Tamil Nadu state government is opposing this?
Well, according to the government approximately 80% of the students study in the state board.
If the CUET 2022 will be conducted as per the NCERT curriculum then it will rob the opportunity of many students who have not studied it in their class 12.
This will be not justified for the students who belong to the marginal sections and have somehow completed their class 12 education.
Therefore, CUET 2022 will be in the favour of the CBSE board rather than any other board.
Most of the authorities are pleading with the UGC to reconsider their decision. But, UGC has not yet opened up about it.
Therefore, it is the need for the hours that you should focus on the NCERT curriculum if you want to get admitted to any of the 45 central universities in the country.
CUET 2022 has created a lot of buzz among everyone.
The exam will be conducted in 13 regional languages to offer a sigh of relief to every student.
UGC gas also mandated to the central universities that they will use only the sole criteria of CUET 2022 to give admission to the universities.
In addition to this, universities can consider the class 12 marks to some extent to make the merit list for the students. But, it is optional and universities can take a call on this matter as per their needs.
