The Common Eligibility Test (CET) proposed to be conducted from next year (2019) is an ambitious endeavour of the Commission and in the long term will benefit both the Government and the job aspirants.
There are plenty of advantages to the candidates and to the govt, that is mentioned below.
1. CET will reduce the number of examinations conducted by various agencies of the government and will save the significant amount of money spent on conducting these examinations by different recruiting agencies.
2. In future, the CET scores may be further used by State Governments, if they so desire and even private companies may use it for short-listing candidates for employing them.
3. The CET Score will be valid for 2 years. This CET score will help candidates to appear for Tier II examinations which would be conducted independently by the respective recruiting agencies like SSC, Bank, Railway and other exams.
4. There may be a scope that the CET score would also be considered by State Government/ PSUs/ Private sectors for the recruitment of manpower.
