The deadline for registration to appear in the Undergraduate Studies Assessment Test (USAT), conducted by Education Testing Council (ETC), has been extended till September 1, 2021.
Keeping in view the problems faced by students while registering and considering the tremendous interest garnered by USAT, the deadline has been extended. The test will tentatively be conducted, as announced earlier, on September 12, 2021.
The universities may freely choose to accept USAT result card as valid for their respective admissions by announcing it for their prospective undergraduate candidates. Being a universal test gauging the ability of a student, it can be used by all universities if they so desire. The test is however not intended for the candidates applying for MBBS/ BDS programmes.
The standardised admission test USAT offered by ETC is a competitive product that intends to carve out its own niche based on quality tests. USAT is developed from a standardised question bank with quality, equity, reliability, and validity of the product as well as integrity of the processes involved ensured at all levels of development, administration, grading and result reporting. Its validity will hold for a year.
