GCET marks to be considered in Goa

Special Correspondent

Examination likely to be held by the first week of May 2006


  • Exam date to be announced after the Maharashtra and Karnataka CET dates are declared
  • GCET 2006 to be conducted through IIT, Mumbai
  • Government to guide students at 30 centres

    PANAJI: The Goa Government has decided to grant 100 per cent weightage to General Common Entrance Test (GCET) 2006 for admission to professional colleges under the State quota.

    This assumes significance in the light of the controversy the issue had generated, leading to parents approaching courts seeking cancellation of 100 per cent marks for CET during the last academic year.

    Education Minister Luizinho Faleiro said the Government had scrutinised in detail the format and pattern of CETs in Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.

    While the dates of the exam are not announced, they are expected to be held by the first week of May 2006. The Government proposes to announce the exam dates after the Maharashtra and Karnataka CET dates are declared, Mr. Faleiro said.

    The GCET 2006 will be conducted through the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Mumbai, in consultation with the Goa Board and the Directorate of Technical Education. The exam will be conducted as per the Goa Board syllabus for Std XII (Science). No negative marks will be allotted.

    Mr. Faleiro said the Government will guide students at 30 centres and will also frame "sample questions." The Directorate of Technical Education, the Goa Board, the Directorate of Education, the Parent Teachers' Association, BITS - Bilani, Goa; IIT, Mumbai, and the Principals' Forum, will jointly conduct the procedure and train teachers to hold the free guidance classes.
