No Plans to Merge JEE, NEET with CUET - Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan

There is no immediate plan to merge engineering (JEE) and medical entrances (NEET) with the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) and no such combined exam will be held at least in the next two years, Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has said.

Pradhan acknowledged that the government is aware that an idea to merge the tests has been floated. But no consensus has been reached on whether it would be a practical move, he said.

Pradhan made the remarks Tuesday in Rajasthan’s Kota, responding to questions during a session with students of a private coaching institute in the city.

“There is a school of thought on merging CUET, JEE, and NEET but the government has not taken any decision on this so students need not be worried about it. There is no proposal to merge as of the date and there will not be any merger even next year. We will not do anything without any prior notice. One idea has been floated but it will take time to arrive at a concrete decision. We will not impose any combined test on students who are in class XII and class XI who will appear in the entrances over the next two years,” Pradhan said.
