UPSEE and CUSAT CAT are among the popular entrance exams of India for admission to professional programmes offered in affiliated institutes of respective states. UPSEE is for candidates who belong to Uttar Pradesh and CUSAT CAT is for candidates who are from Kerala. However, candidates from across India can appear for these two exams but admission will be granted as per prescribed admission policy and reservation policy.

Candidates from any states of India can appear for both exams but weightage will be given to candidates if they belong from the respective states. Before deciding on which exam to appear read the seats and admission criteria of both exams below.
