CET: Advanced date for medical checkup creates confusion

Confusion prevailed at the Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) office here on Sunday over the schedule for medical examination (checkup), as some specially abled candidates seeking admissions to undergraduate professional courses turned up at the venue, assuming that the medical examination ahead of CET counselling was scheduled for Sunday.

The KEA had recently revised the schedule based on the State government’s directions.

As per the revised schedule, the dates were advanced (from the original timetable published in the CET brochure) and the medical examination was conducted on May 30 itself.

Candidates at the venue on Sunday argued with the officials that they were not intimated about the change in dates and hence they had to be given another opportunity.

Some outstation candidates expressed their helplessness to travel back again when KEA officials told them that none of the personnel in charge for medical examination were around on Sunday.

The problem was, however, resolved later, after KEA officials managed to issue eligibility certificates to students.

KEA Director Rame Gowda told Deccan Herald that students could approach KEA for the medical examination for as long as the document verification process was

Hence those who have mistaken the schedule and have turned up late need not worry, he added.

“If there are only two or three candidates, it does not make sense to call the team of medical professionals for the purpose. Instead, we will give them the address and direct them to the NCC office where the medical examination will be conducted,” he said.

The KEA will conduct the document verification from Monday, June 2, 2014.
