CUCET is an entrance exam, which is a prerequisite to get admission in various courses offered across India by Central Universities. The CUCET exam is a joint entrance exam conducted by 14 Central Universities by clearing which students can get seats in UG, PG, and Integrated Courses. This combined entrance exam is pretty competitive as the number of seats is low and the number of applicants is pretty high. This is why you need a solid CUCET preparation strategy, a preparation plan which is not generic but specific as per each subject.
