THE ADVANTAGES OF CET EXAMINATION

This exam will facilitate students to easify the complicated procedure for multiple exams which creates a lot of fuss among students.The syllabus for each examination is different thus students have to focus on different exams at the same time.The workload on the student is way too much.The cost of the examination will be affordable by each and every student because it's going to be coat friendly.The students will not have to travel distances tk appear for examinations because the centre's will be set up in every district so that students from rural areas,women from remote areas and poor students can have access to the exams.This will also save government's expenses and time in conducting the exam.Thus this exam is going to turn out very advantageous to every student of the country.

THE ISSUES WITH CET

The syllabus for CET is not yet given to the students.It is still a problem that how the internet facility will reach to the remote areas of the country.it is not clear that the conducting of the exam at this mass level will be manageable or not.the setting up of centres is still a long term goal.

There have been no updates of the exams nor any government agency has explained the conduction, management and criteria of the exam well.due to the present scenario of covid-19 it is uncertain that whether the centre's will be set up or not upto September 2021.

 

Yet this step was the need of the hour because there was no systematic programme for the three levels , namely for class 10 , class 12 and graduation level.This is a ray of hope for the youth of the country and will help in curbing the unemployment rates.
