To make Common Entrance Test (CET) easy for the students, Andhra University has decided to revive the CET system from the next academic year.
Earlier on, the AUCET contains approximately around 65 examinations covering each PG programme, which was tough for the students. If any of the students were eligible for three or four PG programmes, they had to appear for as many entrance examinations as required.
Further, the student was tested for knowledge in the subject he or she would be taking up at the PG level, which was unrealistic, AU Vice-Chancellor G.S.N. Raju said. How can one expect the student to know the subject at the PG level, the examination should test her knowledge at the graduate level, he said.
The admission to different courses would be given based on the rank in the examination and the options filled in the application form, the Vice-Chancellor said.
University has made the entrance test application / registration procedures online.
The Andhra University Common Entrance Test (AUCET) is the qualifying entrance examination, and is conducted for admission to the postgraduate courses.
The PG programmes are offered in M.Sc, M.Com, M.A, MHRM, MJMC, M.L.I.Sc and M.Ed.
