The Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) has announced that it won’t conduct online verification of documents for the Common Entrance Test (CET) 2015.
Around the time the notifications for CET 2015 were first issued, the KEA had announced that it would make the entire examination process online. As a first step in that direction, the process of submitting applications was made online.
“There was a proposal before the authorities to go online even for document verification,” said a senior KEA official.
But KEA executive director Sushama Godbole stated: “It is not a good idea to conduct online document verification and it will not happen at least for this year.” According to her, there are chances of some candidates submitting fake documents which would be too hard to detect or cross verify.
Meanwhile, KEA has made it clear that no changes will be made to candidates’ reservation category after the application form is submitted alongside necessary documents. It is worth noting here that during CET 2014, hundreds of students got engineering and medical seats at some of the top colleges in the state by changing their categories after conniving with officials.
