Prior to the announcement, CDAC has already organized CCAT 2021 exam for postgraduate diploma programme twice. Both of these exams took place as an online mode in online proctored mode. Students were able to login into the exam from any locations. However, several students reported glitches and cases of unfair means. Those who appeared for the exam from rural areas faced technical problems due to which most of them were unsuccessful to perform.
Considering the issues raised by the students, CDAC spokesperson has announced the exam will take place again. This time, the fresh exam will take place in a computerized manner at different exam centres. The previous marks/ ranks stand null. He further added that CCAT 2021 re-exam will provide each candidate equal opportunity and will maintain the exam’s sanctity. The complete selection procedure will be delayed by over a month.
This decision didn’t go well with the students who have secured good ranks in the previous exam. The ranks were earlier declared in the first week of February 2021. Students were asked to fill up their college choices. A week later, qualifying aspirants received a mail stating that the scores are nullified and the exam will take place again. This decision created a complication who have already left their jobs for the programme. Students have put up their concern that it is an unfair decision for those who have secured good ranks in the exam. Maharashtra students’ Welfare Association also wrote to CDAC requesting them to start the counselling round who have already cleared the exam.
However, officials have said that the re-examination will not create much delay in the procedure. This decision is to benefit a larger number of candidates and will maintain transparency of CDAC CCAT exam.
