Karnataka Higher Education Minister Dr. CN Ashwatha Narayana on Sunday instructed officials to provide special training to students on how to apply for vocational courses.
The Minister has instructed the Director of the Department of Pre-University Education to provide special training to students at the respective college levels on how to complete applications appropriately when submitting to CET/NEET/JEE via GET SET GO.
Narayana said it has been noticed that many students seeking to enter engineering, medical and other vocational courses through examinations conducted by the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) make mistakes when filling in columns such as Annual Income, Category, Name, Date of Birth, Course Selection, etc. for which the opportunity to become eligible is lost.
To avoid such mistakes and thus increase the chances of eligibility for professional courses, training must be provided, he said.
The minister also advised raising awareness among students through social media, websites and newspaper advertisements.
