CUET 2022 Syllabus: Update

There is a new update for the students who were going to give CUET entrance exam 2022. NTA has now made changes in the General Test syllabus of the CUET exam. Students can download the updated syllabus pdf from the official website of CUET i.e. Although there is not much change in the syllabus but students must carefully check the new syllabus for a better understanding of the exam.

Let’s have a look at the changes in the syllabus along with the old syllabus.

CUET 2022 General Test Old Syllabus

In the old syllabus pattern of the CUET exam students have to attempt 60 questions out of 75 in the general test.

According to the earlier syllabus, it was said that the test will contain 5 different sections. The sections were divided as follows:

Section A:-  General Knowledge & Current Affairs

Section B:- General Ability

Section C:- Numerical Ability

Section D:- Quantitative Reasoning

Section E:- Logical & Analytical Reasoning

Earlier it was mentioned that each of the 5 sections will contain 15 questions and students have to attempt any 12 from each section.

CUET Syllabus 2022 General Test (Updated)

Now let’s come to the updated syllabus of the general test in the CUET exam. NTA has now eliminated the section division in the general test area which was earlier. Now students will see General Knowledge, Current Affairs, General Ability, Numerical Ability, Quantitative Reasoning, Logical & Analytical Reasoning. Although students have to still attempt 60 questions out of 75 as mentioned in the previous syllabus.

Earlier it was clearly defined that 15 questions will be there from each section and out of that 12 need to be attempted but now according to the updated pattern students will get a mixture of 75 questions from any area be it Current Affairs, Numerical ability and so on. Now it’s totally up to you which question you want to do out of any 75.

If you are solving any sample paper or mock test for preparation then try to solve the test which is according to the updated pattern so that you may get a better idea. Students have to now be more cautious and get their preparation done well because according to the updated pattern know one knows more questions can come from which area.
