Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Testing of online registrations for common entrance test (CET) conducted by Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya for admission in its professional courses, started on Thursday.
"Testing will continue for two days, then an online window will be opened for students to register for CET-2021," said Kanahiya Ahuja, coordinator of CET. The registration of CET would be on the lines of JEE, UGC-NET and NEET this year.
The National Testing Agency (NTA), which has been entrusted with the contract of CET for session 2021-22, has provided a new format of registration form to DAVV. The new format which is like that of JEE and NEET seeks various personal and educational information, which earlier were not used to be part of DAVV registration form.
Besides, the NTA had made DAVV to make changes in the admission brochure. Because of these changes, the notification of CET was delayed.
CET committee coordinator Dr Kanhaiya Ahuja said, the registration window is likely to be opened on Saturday. “The university wants the CET to be held on August 25 so students may not get less time in comparison to last year for registration,” he said, adding that the shrinking of duration won’t hit the number of registrations.
COURSES IN THREE GROUPS
The university has divided 37 courses into three different groups viz. Group A, Group B and Group C. Group A will consist of MBA courses whereas Group B will comprise integrated courses. Group C will have Science-Arts courses in its fold.
The university administration has suggested setting up examination centres in 22 cities. For the first time, emphasis has been laid on holding CET in many cities of the state including Dhar, Khandwa, Khargone, Indore, Bhopal, Gwalior, Jabalpur, Ujjain, Satna, Sagar. DAVV has also told NTE that it wants CET to be held in Delhi, Prayagraj, Kota, Ahmedabad, Nagpur, Kolkata and few other cities.
