BENGALURU: Though Common Entrance Test (CET) question papers will be bilingual for the first time this year, the  Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) has decided to consider the English version as final during evaluation. This means that in case of difficulties in understanding the questions in Kannada, then candidates can refer to the English version.

Each question in English will be followed immediately by its Kannada version and candidates have to just mark their answers on OMR sheets provided to them, a KEA official said.

There will be chances for students to raise objections later if there are translation errors. “To avoid any such post-test issues, we are informing the candidates right now that the English paper (version) will be considered as final for any kind of confusions or errors,” said the official.

This year, over 1.87 lakh candidates are scheduled to take CET which does not include medical and dental courses. Candidates aspiring to pursue those courses have to appear for National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET).

CET-2017 is scheduled for May 2, 3 and 4 and the admission tickets have been uploaded on the KEA website. Students have to download the same by April 26. A sample OMR sheet has also been uploaded on the website.
