The Common University Entrance Test-Undergraduate (CUET UG) 2024 will see some major changes as the entrance exam will be conducted in hybrid mode, according to reports. This initiative is being taken to facilitate candidates, specially from rural areas to be able to take the exam closer to their homes.
Along with the hybrid mode of exam, the number of subjects a candidate can choose will be reduced from 10 to six. An official told The Indian Express that the survey revealed that not all aspirants were selecting 10 subjects.
The National Testing Agency conducts the CUET exam on behalf of the University Grants Commission (UGC). Meanwhile, NTA is also working towards keeping the difficulty level of the exam moderate to avoid stress among students.
