Online examinations for AP PG Engineering Common Entrance Test (AP PGECET) may not be feasible as the government is contemplating to conduct PGECET in the paper-based mode for this academic year.
Following the series of discussion between government and private institutions regarding the PGECET, the government has denied to conduct online examinations and stated the examinations will be conducted in the paper based format in the absence of private institutions.
Quoting the reasons for not conducting online examinations one of the senior officials said that all the government colleges may not find the requisite infrastructure to hold online examinations.
Secondly, online tests require computer labs with safe environment so that the data cannot be compromised.
"Since government institutions are not provided with all the above mentioned facilities there is no other option left instead of conducting paper-based exam," the official added.
"Over 2 lakh aspirants appear for the PGECET in order to take admissions to PG courses in engineering and pharmacy. Conducting online test for large number of candidates is not possible from safety and infrastructure point of view," another official said.
According to the website, the examination is scheduled to be held between 25 May 2016 and 27 May 2016.
