Questions that the candidates do not attempt would not be reviewed and accessed by the exam conducting authorities. Unanswered questions would not have any impact on the final merit score. Admissions to the Central universities all over India are based on the CUET score. Therefore, a candidate has to put in a lot of effort in cracking the examination with a merit score. CUET coaching, sample papers, mock tests, and previous years’ examinations can help the candidate score a spot on the merit list.
