Stalin urges PM Modi to withdraw CUET for admission in all central university


Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin on Wednesday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to withdraw the “regressive and undesirable” rule which necessitates Frequent College Admission Check (CUET) for Underneath Graduate programme in all Central Universities.

“There isn’t a doubt that this CUET, much like NEET will side-line the varied college training techniques throughout the nation, grossly undermine the relevance of general development-oriented long-form studying in colleges and make college students depend upon teaching centres for enhancing their entrance examination scores,” reads the letter despatched by CM Stalin to PM Modi.

He additional flagged the priority that for the reason that CUET examination relies on the NCERT syllabus it should put college students who’ve studied within the state boards and belong to the marginalised household in a disadvantageous place.

In most States, State Board syllabus college students represent greater than 80 per cent of the full scholar inhabitants and these college students invariably hail from the marginalised sections. Therefore an NCERT syllabus primarily based entrance examination would place this deserving majority in a disadvantageous place in securing admission in Central Universities,” the letter reads.

He additional added that the CUET examination will result in a drastic discount of scholars from Tamil Nadu to Central Universities as a result of mentioned components.
