The CUET will consist of Section 1A, Section 1B, an overall test, and Domain Specific Subjects. In Section 1A, which is mandatory, students have their choice of 13 languages. The following languages are available: English, Hindi, Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Odia, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, and Urdu.
