The University Entrance Test-Undergraduate (CUET-UG) is also planning to form a committee to consult with different stakeholders and reach a conclusion. Though this is in the proposal stage, and nothing has been confirmed yet. At the moment, the committee will evaluate if it's feasible to integrate all the entrance exams so that students are not confused between different entrance tests. 


Approximately 43 lakh students appear for Joint Entrance Examination Main (JEE), National Eligibility cum Entrance Test-Undergraduate (NEET-UG), and Central Universities Common Entrance Test- Undergraduate (CUET-UG). 

The primary aim of bringing one common entrance test is to keep students away from the stress of multiple entrance examinations when the same set of subjects are asked in each test. It is just Biology is replaced with Mathematics for JEE. This will also simplify logistics for the aspirant as well as the National Testing Agency (NTA).
