KEA has extended training facilities to those wishing to take the Common Entrance
Test (CET) for admission to professional courses.
The Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) has decided to
extend special training for rural students in the Commerce and Arts streams as well.
So far, KEA has extended training facilities to those wishing to take the Common
Entrance Test (CET) for admission to professional courses. Students in the Commerce
and Arts subjects too can expect training for appearing for competitive examinations
from current academic year.
"The KEA has decided to provide special coaching even to Commerce and Arts students
who wish to appear for competitive examinations," sources from KEA said. The move
is being firmed up, at present.
"Beginning this year, we will provide training in subjects like Economics, Accountancy
and English. We are including these subjects in the CET training package," said
a senior KEA official. Till now, the training had been restricted only to the Science
students wishing to take the CET examination.
"We realised that there are bright students in Commerce and Arts streams who should
be provided coaching for free. It would be helpful for them to appear in competitive
examinations, other than the CET," an official said.
According to KEA officials, Commerce students have the option of taking
up courses in Chartered Accountancy. Other general degree students can appear for
competitive examinations conducted by the Union Public Service Commission. "We realised
that coaching only Science students will be discriminating. So, we thought of extending
this to Accountancy, Economics and English subjects," said official.
