In an effort to curb impersonation that has dogged Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (COMEDK) Undergraduate Entrance Test (UGET), the process of registration and applying have been tweaked this year.
The change comes in the light of the arrest of 35 persons, mostly from northern States, on charges of impersonation last year. Under the new rules, students will be allowed to access the application form only after registering online and getting their unique user identity and password while institutions college or coaching centre will not be allowed to register on behalf of their students.
The practice of barring institutions from applying on behalf of students was introduced to curb impersonation. Not only this, COMEDK has decided to allow students to use only ‘Speed Post’ to send communication to the consortium. “This will make it easier to track the communication material,” Mr. Srikanth explained. In addition, COMEDK has decided to do away with the process of seeking enclosures, such as caste certificates, this time. He said the consortium did not want to “burden” students as there is no reservation system in COMEDK.
These will be only used to check for eligibility (SC, ST and OBC students have a relaxation in the qualifying percentage),” Mr. Srikanth pointed out. Importantly, the identity proof that applicants submit at the time of applying for UGET 2015 will be the one they will have to reproduce for all subsequent processes.
