CET (Common Entrance Test) is a type of entrance exam that is typically required for admission to professional courses in India. CET exams are usually conducted at the state level and are mandatory for students who wish to pursue undergraduate and postgraduate courses in engineering, medical, dental, pharmacy, and other professional fields.
The CET exam tests students on their knowledge and understanding of the subjects that are relevant to the course they wish to pursue. The exam typically includes multiple choice questions and is divided into different sections, such as physics, chemistry, and mathematics (for engineering courses) or physics, chemistry, biology (for medical/dental courses) or as per the subject required for the course.
CET exams are usually conducted by the state government or a designated government body, such as the State Common Entrance Test Cell. The exams are usually held once a year and are usually held in the months of April and May.
The process of preparing for the CET exam varies depending on the student and the course they wish to pursue. However, students typically begin preparing for the exam several months in advance, by reviewing their class notes, studying from reference books and sample papers, and attending coaching classes.
The result of the CET exam is usually published a few weeks after the exam and the merit list is prepared based on the student’s performance in the exam. The students who secure a good rank in the merit list will be eligible for the counselling process for the respective courses and institutions.
