CET: online counseling, struggle due to network
197 views

The first online Common Entrance Test (CET) counselling didn’t have a great start on Thursday, 12th July, 2012. First, seat matrix came in late. Then, there was network congestion. Finally, the website turned super slow, leaving hundreds of students in the lurch. It’s for the first time that CET seat-selection process for admission to professional colleges in Karnataka is going online. Students can enter their options of courses and college till 18th July. The Karnataka Examination Authority is working with the e-governance department and National Informatics Centre (NIC) to ensure the online counselling process is smooth.

CET: online counseling, struggle due to network

Around 19,000 students managed to enter the options on the first day. I started trying from 11.00 am. First, the website refused to open. When it finally did, I managed to log in but the main page didn’t open. I kept trying till 5.30 pm. I am worried. The only consolation is that there are enough days left to do it, said Monica CH, student, St. Annes PU College. Agreed Kiran Kumar, an engineering seat aspirant: The four links to option entry didn’t open. It will be wise to wait and do it later when the rush is less, he said. Officials said the 128-GB server can handle around 80,000 students at a time.

Instead, it was the type of network that created the problem. Technical issues are expected to be sorted out soon. The seat matrix came to us very late. Putting the same of 190 colleges category-wise ate up a lot of time. We had to work over the night to upload it on the website, and could do it only by afternoon. By then, many students were logging in at the same time. We hope it will be stabilized by night when the load comes down. We will create multiple links, and by Day 2, everything will be alright, explained Rashmi V, executive director, KEA.

In Numbers

Students have got their documents verified to participate in the counselling
57,000
The number of seats for Engineering
49,214
The number of seats for Medical
2,222

Students don’t panic:
You have six more days to enter your options. You won’t need more than two hours to enter 1,300 options. What you need to do is to go through the seat matrix carefully. Take time to decide on the options. It’s not on first-come-first-served basis. Do it at your own pace, Rashmi V, Executive Director, Karnataka Examination Authority
