The four-day boycott of II PU evaluation may affect the Common Entrance Test (CET). The test, which was scheduled to be held on May 3 and 4, is likely to be delayed by a week.

According to highly placed sources, the boycott, which ended Monday, has resulted in CET-related work piling up. This includes despatch of hall tickets and question papers, appointment of invigilators and so on.

“The CET has to be conducted in the same colleges where evaluation is taking place. The same people will have to coordinate the CET, due to which there is a possibility of the CET being rescheduled,” said the source.

Original schedule

According to the original schedule, the evaluation should have been completed by April 26.

It is now likely to be delayed by a few more days in view of the boycott. As for evaluation, only 25 per cent of the work has been completed.

However, it is learnt that officials in the Primary and Secondary Education Department and the Department of Pre-University Education are trying to stick to the original schedule.
