Common Eligibility Test 2020
Only a single online CET By NRA will be conducted for recruitment in non-gazetted posts in both the government and public sector banks. There won’t be any separate examination for these posts.The validation period for CET scores will be for three years counted from the date of the result declaration.
Each candidate will be provided with two additional chances to improve their scores in the CET and the best score out of the three scores will be considered.
There will be no restrictions on the number of attempts made by the candidates within the age limits. Like before, the SC/ST/PwD/OBC candidates will be provided with relaxation to the upper age limit.
On a cost-sharing and time-saving basis, the NRA will be sharing the CET merit list on the state-level, UTs, PSU, and private sector for the recruitment process.
CET will be conducted in every district to make ease for the rural, women, youth, and disabled candidates to appear in the exam.
Separate CET would be conducted for Graduate, Higher Secondary, and Matriculate levels.
For the non-technical posts such as SSC, Railways, IBPS selection, this test would be replacing the Tier-1 exam.
The new National Recruitment Agency will be similar to the National Testing Agency which conducts examinations for admission in medical and engineering courses.
The syllabus of CET is yet to be declared but we are not expecting a lot of changes in it. We expect that there will be four sections namely: English Language, Reasoning ability, Quantitative Aptitude and General Awareness. The syllabus will incorporate the preliminary syllabus of all the three exam testing agencies.
