The Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) conducted Common Entrance Test (CET) for admission to various undergraduate programmes in 23 centres here on Tuesday.
According to a source from Communication Centre and International Linkages (CCIL), PAU, against 7,089 applications received from various pockets of the state, 6,378 students appeared for the exam. However, there are a total of 354 seats for the undergraduate courses.
The university vice-chancellor BS Dhillon and controller of examinations BS Sohal visited various examination centres to take stock of the arrangements made there.
“Test was neither difficult nor easy and all questions were from the syllabus mentioned in the prospectus,” a student, who aspires to take admission in the four-year BSc (agriculture) in PAU, said.
Some of the students who took the exam said had they got their admission cards on time through post, they would have been less stressed.
Controller of examinations BS Sohal said: “We are glad that large number of students from across Punjab visited the city to take PAU CET. The test was smoothly and fairly conducted and results will be posted in the next two days on the university website.” Counseling sessions will be held on June 30 and July 1, he added.
