AMU Entrance Exam dates released, CUET score to be considered for some courses

Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) has today announced that it will conduct the AMU entrance exam 2022 for admissions to its undergraduate and postgraduate courses. It must be noted that AMU has also adopted Common University Entrance Test (CUET) for admissions to some of its UG courses. 

AMU will also be accepting CUET 2022 scores for admissions to BVoc, BA, BCom and BSc courses. The last date of CUET 2022 application is May 6. The courses offered through AMU entrance exam 2022 are BSc, MSc, BA, MA, BFA, PG Diploma, BCom, MCom, BTech, BArch, BE, MTech, MSc, MArch, Diploma, BVoc, MVoc, BA LLB, LLM, MBA, BPEd, BEd, MEd, MSW, MPEd, PhD. Candidates have to apply for AMU courses separately, i.e. one application for each course. 

AMU Entrance exam 2022 dates have been released for both UG and PG courses. The last date to apply for AMU entrance exam 2022 will be notified on the website. 

AMU had earlier decided that it will maintain the status-quo on its admission policy as the case on its minority status is ‘sub-judice’. However, on March 21, the University Grants Commission (UGC) made it mandatory for all central universities to take undergraduate admissions solely on the basis of CUET.

On March 15, the Education Ministry also reached out to the vice-chancellor Tariq Mansoor stating that the subjudice matter “does not bar AMU from participating in any test for selection of candidates”. The Ministry also assured that the CUET will not take away AMU’s “power to admit students of its choice” as per the existing university norms.

AMU reserves 50 per cent of seats for students of university-recognized Madaris/institutions/ schools in various undergraduate courses. AMU public relation officer (PRO) Omar Peerzada informed that the AC has decided that the University’s provisions for admissions including internal reservation, Vice Chancellor’s nomination to various categories and admissions to students of bridge courses and Madrasas will remain unaffected.

“The University will hold its own counselling session and it will conduct its admission test for BTech, postgraduate courses, Class 11, Diploma Courses, schools and all other courses not in CUET,” he said.

The AC also decided that the varsity will conduct its own counselling process for undergraduate admissions for CUET-qualified candidates.

“Candidates of the Madaris/ Institutions recognised by AMU as per procedure will also be eligible to take admission on the basis of CUET score—if they fulfill laid down eligibility conditions in the Guide to Admission of AMU and students who have graduated the AMU Bridge Course (CEPECAMI) will be eligible to take admission on the basis of CUET score, if they fulfill the laid down eligibility conditions of AMU,” the University said in a statement.
