Bengaluru: The idea to make CET performance as the criteria for admission to B.Sc. course has been dropped, said Deputy Chief Minister and Higher Education Minister, Dr. C.N. Ashwathnarayan.

Addressing the media after the meeting with the Vice-Chancellors with regard to academic activities here yesterday, he clarified that the idea to make CET marks as the parameter for admission to B.Sc. course has been dropped. 

Earlier, it was said, in view of the cancellation of the Second PU examination, the Department of Higher Education had been mulling to make CET marks as the basis for admission to the B.Sc. course. 

“Apart from this, matters related to finding ways to accommodate the number of students whose number will be increased for the degree courses, implementation of E-Office software were also discussed”, he added. 

Start degree courses

The State Varsities have been asked to act towards starting the undergraduate courses from the current academic year, as per National Education Policy. This year, the number of students seeking admission will increase as the 2nd PUC examination is cancelled. If the Universities start 4-year Undergraduate courses, that will help to accommodate more students and it is also an opportunity at the right time for varsities to initiate this, he added.

New software to go on trail from June 25

The Unified University College Management System, a web portal-based software developed by the Department of e-Office has been given permission to go on a trial run from June 25.
