The New Common Eligibility Test (CET) 2020 | Explained

“Education is not merely meant for you to write and pass exams, get a good job and a good spouse, and settle down for survival.”

― Israelmore Ayivor

In india every household has a youth who is aspiring for a goverment position to settle their financial and family position in their society.

This is a big change for all of us as to how we give exams to enter different goverment fields. 30 million youths of this nation will have an impact in their schedule by this. Let’s understand how?

The exams conducted for Railway, Banking and SSC were previously conducted seperatly.

From now on all the exams will be conducted under on exam rule that is (CET) Common Eligibility Test. All the students now have to give one common entrace CET Test to go to next stage of Main Exam under their choosing path of Railway, Banking and SSC.

Before (CET) exams are conducted in three stages i.e, Entrance Exam, Main Exam and Interview.

For Railway, Banking and SSC there will be only one Entrance exam of (CET) Common Eligibility Test.

From now on the path to achieve goverment positions will be different and it will become simpler than before by (CET).

The proposal for National Recruitment Agency was first introduced by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in the Union Budget 2020. The new agency will be an “independent, professional, specialist organisation and will conduct an exam, which would be known as the Common Eligibility Test, for selection to government jobs,” the Union Budget mentioned.

NRA will work as a preliminary single-window agency to shortlist qualifying candidates from bulk of applicants and forward the list to SSC, IBPS, etc, to hold the mains.

The government sanctioned Rs.1,517.57 crore for NRA, Union cabinet said in a statement, adding that the expenditure will be undertaken over a period of three years.

“Apart from setting up the NRA, costs will be incurred for setting up examination infrastructure in the 117 aspirational districts,” the statement said.

The Structure of (CET) Exams

Before this students have to give different exams on different exam centers and applications. From now on everything will be conducted under one exam, one center rule.

Center Goverment Cabinet has dissolved the perviously confusing exams and now have aggregated under (CET) rules.

National Recruitment Agency has now been structured by the Central Goverment to conduct the CET exams.

India has 20 National Recruitment Agencies which conduct different exams for different positions for recruitment.

The multi-agency body will conduct a separate CET each for the three levels of graduate, higher secondary (12th pass) and the matriculate (10th pass) candidates.

Based on the screening done at the CET score level, final selection for recruitment shall be made through separate specialised tiers (II, III etc) of examination which shall be conducted by the respective recruitment agencies.

The score of CET will be valid for three years. There shall be no restriction on the number of attempts to be taken by a candidate to appear in the CET subject to the upper age limit.

The curriculum for this test would be common as would be the standard. This would greatly ease the burden of candidates who are at present required to prepare for each of the examinations separately as per different curriculum.

Candidates would have the facility of registering on a common portal and give a choice of centres. Based on availability, they would be allotted centres.

The CET would be available in a number of languages. This would greatly facilitate people from different parts of the country to take the exam and have an equal opportunity of being selected.
