The National Testing Agency (NTA) has released the provisional answer keys of the Central Universities– Common Entrance Test (CU-CET) 2021. 

The test was conducted by the NTA on September 15, 16, 23 and 24, 2021 in Computer Based Test (CBT) mode for admission of students in undergraduate/Integrated (UI) and Post Graduate (PG) programmes in 2021-22 academic session. 

The provisional answer keys along with the question paper and recorded responses have been uploaded on the website https://cucet.nta.nic.in.

Candidates, who are not satisfied with the answer key, can challenge the same by paying a fee of Rs 200  per challenged question, as a non-refundable processing fee. This facility will be available from October 3, 2021 to  October 5, 2021 (7 pm). 

“The payment of the processing fee may be made through Debit card/Credit Card/Net Banking/Paytm/UPI upto October 5, 2021 (until 11:50 pm). No challenge will be entertained without receipt of the processing fee. The challenges will not be accepted through any other medium i.e: fax, email or hard copy,” the NTA stated. 

According to the NTA, challenges made by the candidates will be verified by the panel of subject experts. If found correct, the answer key will be revised accordingly. Based on the revised Final Answer Key, the result will be prepared and declared.

“No individual candidate will be informed about the acceptance/non-acceptance of his/her challenge. The key finalised by the Experts after the challenge will be final. No challenge will be accepted after October 5, 2021 (7 pm),” it added.
