Karnataka not in favour of single common entrance test

Bangalore: Karnataka Government today said it was not in favour of a single common entrance test (CET) at the state level for admission to professional courses, as it would not benefit the state students.

The government had no objection to the existing system of CET conducted by the Karnataka Examination Authority and COMED-K, a consortium of private medical, engineering and dental colleges in the state, Higher Education Minister Dr V S Acharya told reporters here.

Acharya said about 1.75 lakh Karnataka students appear for the state run CET and a meagre one per cent of the state’s students appear for COMED-K.

The COMED-K test is for all India students and majority of them are from outside, he pointed out.
