Karnataka CET to be rescheduled as it it clashing with AIPMT on May 1
The Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) has been asked to rescheduled the dates for Common Entrance Test (CET). According to a report published in a national daily, the dates are being rescheduled as there is a clash with the All-India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) conducted by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). The CET was scheduled to be held on May 1, 2 and 3 but it is clashing with AIPMT on May 1. The new CET dates are yet to be finalised.
There are thousands of candidates who will be appearing for for both, CET and AIPMT. Even last year, the date of CET was pushed due to nationawide strike. The dates are either to be advanced or postponed.
Karnataka CET is conducted for admissions to various undergraduate (UG) professional programmes at government and private institutes in the state of Karnataka . CET provides admissions to Medical, Dental, Homeopathy, Ayurveda, Unani, Naturapathy and Yoga, Engineering, B.Sc Agriculture, Sericulture, Forestry, Horticulture, B-Pharma and D-Pharma courses and is applicable only for the students of Karnataka.
The AIPMT exam is scheduled to be conducted on May 1, 2016. The official notification of CBSE AIPMT 2016 will be published in the third week of December. Last year, AIPMT was held on May 3, 2015. The test, however, was cancelled by the Supreme Court due to the leak of question paper across 10 states in the country.
