Bangalore: Karnataka Examination Authority Board would likely to withdraw Common Entrance Test (CET) by 2019 which was conducted as an admission test for undergraduate professional courses. According to KEA authorities, this is because the responsibility of conducting exams by the body is reducing by the past two years.” It is already a single entrance for medical and dental courses and same as been introduced for AYUSH courses. The centre is considering single entrance test even for engineering then what is the use of KEA? , A senior officer said to Indian Express. Common Entrance Test, also known as CET, is conducted by Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) to admit students into first year undergraduate courses in Engineering, Technology, Medical, Dental, Homeopathy, Ayurveda, Unani, Naturopathy, Yoga, Architecture and Agricultural courses in Government / University / Private unaided and private aided professional educational institutes of Karnataka. The CET was started in the year 1994. Every year more than 1 million students take this exam. This common entrance test is exclusively for the students of Karnataka only. Students belonging to other states can apply for admission to the various educational institutions through the Management quota seats. Before that only government seats were afforded to meritious students while rest of the private seats were bought by the students. As number of aspirants opting for Vet nary and Agriculture are decreasing than the number of colleges offered says one of the senior officials of KEA. They have recently stopped online verification of documents as there would be no use of e verification if centre makes single entrance exam for under graduate courses and also added that soon there will be single entrance exam like JEE for engineering aspirants as decided by the Union.
