"In continuation of our earlier letters regarding participation in the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) in all UGC-funded Central Universities for admission of students in UG programmes, it is clarified that all the central universities and their colleges should use only the scores of the CUET while admitting students in UG programmes. However, in some activity-based courses such as Fine Arts, Performing Arts, Sports, Physical Education, etc., additional criteria may be used," states the official letter.
