For the first time, a Common Entrance Test will be conducted across the state for PG admissions in 13 universities in the state.

This set will be conducted for admission in 127 courses like MA, M.Com, M.Sc., Integrated M.Sc., PG Diploma. All universities in the state, PG colleges, affiliated colleges, private, unaided and minority colleges under their purview will conduct PGCET for admission in the first year of PG for 2023–23. Students who have passed the degree and are writing the final semester exams are eligible to apply.

It is gratifying that for the first time the state government has decided to give PG admissions to all the universities in the state through a single examination and hand over the management responsibilities to Yogi Vemana Varsity.

However, the UGC Act requires the approval of the respective varsity governing bodies for a single entrance test in the context of varsities having autonomy. The entrance test will be conducted after the varsities approve the orders issued by the government based on the proposals of the Higher Education Board.

Jagananna Vidyakanuka for varsity college students: However, fee reimbursement under Jagannath Vidyakanuka is applicable only to those who have secured seats in varsities and PG Centers under their purview.

It came to the notice of the government last year that fee reimbursement funds were being misused in the name of admissions in professional PG courses in private PG colleges. The government has abolished fee reimbursement for professional PG courses in private colleges. Similarly, fee reimbursement will not apply to non-professional PG courses in private colleges and the government will pay the fees only to those who have secured seats in varsities, officials said.
