He also pointed out that the tests would be conducted in several Indian languages.
Dr. Chandra said the final selection will be made through the separate specialized Tier 2 and Tier 3 testing conducted by the respective recruiting agency based on the CET results.

Dr. Chandra explained the methodology for running the CET and said that the CET score will be valid for three years.
The best available score over that period is the current score, he added.
