There is no immediate plan to merge engineering and medical entrances with the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) and there will be no such combined exam that will be held at least in the next two years.
Earlier, the authorities had shared an idea to merge the tests. But no agreement has been reached on whether it would be a practical move or not.
Authorities had thought about merging CUET, JEE, and NEET but the government has not taken any decision on this so students need not be worried about it. The education minister also stated, “We will not do anything without any prior notice.” We will not impose any combined test on students who are in class XI and class XII who will appear in the entrances over the next two years. “After the introduction of the CUET exam, we now have three major entrance examinations in the country that are NEET, JEE, and CUET. Most students appear for at least two of these examinations, and many write all three also for getting admission in various disciplines. The NEET exam covers Biology, Physics, and Chemistry while JEE covers Maths, Physics, and Chemistry subjects. So, both entrance exams have two subjects in common and the same subjects are also used in CUET for admission to various universities. So, this is the major reason why the authorities feel that there should be a common exam that students should appear for instead of multiple exams.
