This year's CET exam has been in the news for a variety of reasons. Not many days back, there were rumours that the exam will be deferred. But those rumours have been put to rest now.
The common Entrance Test (CET) for admission to professional courses won't be postponed. It will be held as per planned dates that is on May 4 and 5 says Primary and secondary minister Kimmane Rathnakar.
In the wake of II PU chemistry paper leaks twice in 10 days the education department was expecting to postpone the CET.The Minister told, "Students have sufficient time to prepare for CET. So we decided not to postpone it" to the reporters. Students will be left with 20 days after the chemistry re-exam, conducting on April 12 by the DPUE.
Sympathise with PU education department director Pallavi Akurathi's transfer, he said: "We cannot blame her over the question paper leakage because she took a charge only a month before the exams began. If she were an officer who had been in the department for a long time, I would have suspended that officer."
However, the students will have 20 days around to prepare for the CET after the chemistry re-exam.
