Karnataka to have single CET from 2010.Taking either CET, COMED-K will entitle admission could be an option

The Karnataka government plans to have a single Common Entrance Test (CET) for admission to medical, dental and engineering courses – in both government and private institutions – from the forthcoming year.

Karnataka Minister for Higher Education Arvind Limbavali said that the State government was keen to have one common admission test for professional courses and it would try to ensure the same next year. The minister also noted that the state was keen to have a say in the admission process of deemed universities too.

Limbavali was responding to queries in the Legislative Council on the hardship and confusion arising from two different tests – CET by Karnataka Examiniation Authority and COMEDK by the managements of private colleges.

Limbavali said the government wanted to adopt the single-CET system from this academic year, but could not do it due to technical reasons.

Nanaiah earlier highlighted the ‘fraudulent practices’ being adopted by Comed-K. “They ensure admission to students of their choice while awarding ranks after entrance exams,’’ he alleged. “Otherwise, how is it possible for students who have got 50-60% in PU exams to get ranks in the Comed-K entrance exam?”
