Kumar clarified that a student’s Class 12 performance will not carry any weightage and admission will be based solely on the CUET score. Universities, at best, can use the Board marks as eligibility criterion, he said.

There will be no common counseling for admission to the central universities. Each university will admit students based on the merit list prepared by NTA.

Significantly, Kumar also clarified that adopting CUET will be compulsory for all central universities, when he was asked whether institutions like Jamia Millia Islamia and Aligarh University will also have to join the entrance test.
