Tamil Nadu government on Tuesday said the Common Entrance Test (CET) for the academic year 2006 would be held on May 13 and 14.

With this the government has ended the uncertainty over the process of admission to professional courses. 

"In order to avoid any anxiety among students and parents on the admission policy for the academic year 2006 and taking note of the pendency of Special Leave Petition (on CET issue) before the Supreme Court, a tentative programme for holding the CET has been finalised," an official release said.

The announcement comes a day after the Supreme Court posted to April 13 for hearing the SLP challenging a February 27 Madras High Court order striking down the state act that abolished CET only for state board students.

The CET would be applicable to all students, including state board students, and its pattern would be similar to that held in previous years, the release said adding that the government had instructed the Anna University to take up the task of holding the examination.

"With these dates for the CET, the final schedule for counselling and commencement of classes will be absolutely on schedule without any delay," it said.

The government made it clear that the system to be followed eventually in admissions to professional courses "will be determined on the basis of the decision of the Supreme Court (on its SLP)".
