Students throng DH-PV pre-counselling guidance meet

Academic experts have advised students not to worry about the National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) and instead focus on the Common Entrance Test process.

The document verification of the students who have emerged successful in the CET will commence on June 3. In this backdrop, Deccan Herald and Prajavani had organised a free pre-counselling guidance for students and parents at SIT Birla auditorium in the city on Monday.

Elaborating on the CET process, Nodal Officer Natarajappa from Shivamogga said that a clear picture on NEET would emerge in around three days. He asked the students not to be anxious about multiple tests. Natarajappa said that document verification of CET candidates would be conducted at 13 centres across the state. Students can get their documents verified at any centre.

The documents will be verified only once for all the courses for which admission is secured through CET. All the documents should be certified by a gazetted officer. Since study certificate is not available online, the admission process is being conducted off-line. Online admissions will be introduced in the coming days.

Deputy Commissioner K P Mohan Raj said that all students had performed with zeal in the examination and no one should be disappointed if they do not get the seats of their choice. Ample of opportunities are available in public administration and anything could be achieved with the right spirit.

He said that the money invested on children’s education would never go waste and parents should not be anxious about it. The DC recalled that when he came to Karnataka after passing IAS, his professor, Gurudutt, used to suggest him read Prajavani. The DC congratulated the Deccan Herald - Prajavani for organising the event outside Bengaluru. SIT Director Dr M N Channabasappa, Dr Muralidhar, Dr Shivakumaraiah and others were present.
