The first day of Central Universities Common Entrance Test (CUCET) 2017 is over today (May 17) and the test will also be held tomorrow (May 18). Over 1.3 lakh candidates will be taking this entrance test for admission to courses offered by 10 of the Central Universities across the nation. Reportedly, 15 thousand will be taking the test in Jammu & Kashmir state alone in these 2 days. CUCET 2017 on each day will be held in 3 time slots ( 9 am to 11 am, 12 noon to 2 pm, and 3 pm to 5 pm).
Surely, the candidates who have taken the test today will be eager to know how they performed? How many answers they got right? Results are on June 7 and that is a long time to wait to know your score. Good news is that the official answer keys of CUCET 2017 will be released on May 19. However, many of the coaching centres or online forums upload the answer keys for the other entrance exams, so here’s hoping they do so for CUCET too. If the answer keys are available by evening or tomorrow, we’ll update here.
The official answer keys releasing on May 19 will be preliminary keys. The final answer keys will be released by the organising Central University, Rajasthan (CURAJ) on May 29. In between the time, candidates will be provided the facility to challenge the preliminary answer key from May 19 to May 22 (5 pm).
