HomeCURRENT AFFAIRSAMU to take admission through CUET

The plea of ​​Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) to introduce Common University Entrance Test (CUET) for a limited number of undergraduate programs has been approved by the Central Government. The apex academic body of the university on Saturday approved the proposal to adopt the entrance examination to be conducted for the new academic session starting this year.

A statement issued by the university said that all aspects of the issue have been discussed in a meeting of the members of the Academic Council. In this, the recommendations of the committee constituted by the council in December last year were also accepted.

The meeting was presided over by the Vice-Chancellor of the University and was attended by Registrar, Controller of Examinations, Deans of Faculties, Principals of Colleges, Heads of Departments, Directors of Centers and other Academic Council members.

During the discussion of the committee, it was said that Aligarh Muslim University will use the test scores of CUET, but their internal reservation, nomination of vice-chancellors for different categories, admission of students of bridge courses and madrasas will remain unaffected. Also the university will conduct its counseling session and it will conduct the entrance test for B.Tech, PG courses, class 11th, diploma courses, schools and all other courses which are not given in CUET.

AMU had sent a letter to the education ministry on March 28, 2022, stating that it wanted to use CUET scores only for admission to eight undergraduate courses, three professional courses and five BA programmes. Delhi’s Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) had also made a similar request, saying it would use CUET scores for admission to two professional and six BA (Hons) courses.

The Center, in its response, made it clear to both the universities that CUET would be implemented on admission to all undergraduate programmes. Which will be organized in the first and second week of July.

AMU gave its second message on March 28 by writing a letter to the government regarding CUET. Earlier, the university had contested elections in the Supreme Court for the first time in February by writing to the Center seeking exemption from CUET, citing its minority status. Then the Center in its response had argued that CUET will not have any effect on the reservation policies adopted by AMU.

The statement also said that the internal quota and all enrollment quotas (Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Backward Classes, Children of University Employees, Children of Ex-Students, Children of Central Government Employees who are recently posted or transferred to Aligarh) Physically Handicapped, NCC Cadets,Outstanding sportsperson, excellent debater, children of Armed Forces soldiers who died in battle) will continue as before.
