According to the schedule approved by the Minister of Education, the first CET exam TS-ECET will take place on August 31, and 28,038 students are expected to take part. In total, almost four Lakh students are expected to appear in the seven CET between August 31 and October 4.
“I’m afraid of social distancing measures that might be in place at the exam center as many students may be from districts where the number of cases is now much higher. Even a single asymptomatic patient can put everyone else at risk, ”said Prithvi Reddy, a student.
Even after two years of rigorous coaching for CETs, the students are now completely unprepared for a crucial part of the exam masks. Wearing a face mask for three hours during a high-pressure exam is uncharted territory for many.
“CET is already so stressful and wearing the mask for almost four hours, including the registration time, in the examination center will not be easy. I started using a mask when I showed up online for mock tests, ”said one student.
In fact, many students are concerned about unsafe weather conditions that have caused flooding in many counties in the state. Students fear that heavy rainfall during the exam could cause transportation problems.
Many have started flooding the social media platform to postpone the CETs. Some have also raised concerns that preparations for Lawcet and UPSC will take place on the same day. “LAWCET will be held on October 4th and UPSC will hold preliminary rounds on that day. Some people have problems because of the same day exam. @KTRTRS Sir, please change the date of the exam, ”Vinay Thati tweeted.
