Mysuru, July 29:- The heritage city is all geared up to conduct Common Entrance Test (CET) examinations on July 30 and 31. Around 26 centres have been readied to conduct the exams, said Deputy Commissioner Abhiram G Sankar here on Wednesday (July 29).

Speaking live on a programme aired by Information and Broadcasting Department, Sankar said, “On July 30, from morning 10.30 am to 11.50 am, test on Biology will be held and from 2.30 pm to 3.50 pm, test on Mathematics will be conducted. The following day, in the morning, the Physics test will be held while in the afternoon, the Chemistry test will be conducted.”

While there are 20 centres for the CET exams in Mysuru, the other taluks have around 6 centres. Around 10,368 students will be writing the exams. Section 144 will be in force around the examination centres. Photo-copy centres have been advised to stay shut on these two days. People gathering in large numbers have also been prohibited. “The examinations will be held on the lines of PUC and SSLC. All the centres will be sanitised and strict guidelines will be followed to see smooth conduct of the examinations,” the DC said.

Sankar said, “Students have to wear face masks compulsorily, sanitise their hands before entering the examination hall. They have been advised to be at the venue two hours before exams commence.  Along with the hall tickets, they are supposed to bring ID cards. Three coronavirus positive students will be allowed to write exams at Mandakalli Covid Centre. They will be brought to the examination centre in an ambulance and dropped back. Their answer sheets will be kept in a separate box and will be opened after 7 days.”

Students are allowed to bring water and food, if need be, along with them. Those students who are coming from containment zones will be made to write exams in a separate room. “Not more than two students should be allowed to sit on a bench and there should be a distance of three metres between two benches. There should be doctors at all the centres,” he said.

Sankar said, “Every centre will have a thermal scanner and first aid kit. Five centres that are supposed to be delicate will have five ambulances at their disposal. Thermal screening of students will begin at 8 am.”

The DC had a word of advice for all the students. “He said, “If you have fever or cold, don’t hide. Many officials will be working as route officers, wearing N95 masks and face shields.” (MR/KS)
