The higher education department has published state wide merit list of the Odisha CPET 2020 (Common PG Entrance Test). Students can visit https://pg.samsodisha.gov.in/ website for more information.
Odisha has conducted CPET for the first time for admission into PG courses offered by state public universities and colleges. The PG entrance test was conducted between October 12 and October 22 at 28 examination centres in the state.
A total of 62,942 candidates including six Covid-19 positive students had appeared the CPET-2020 examinations out of the 71,789 registered candidates. The turnout percentage was 87.6.
The department had asked candidates to upload their graduation/ equivalent mark in the Student Academic Management System (SAMS) portal by November 17 prior to preparation of final state merit list.
The dateline was changed for third time because students couldn’t manage to upload the marks due to delay in publication of undergraduate (UG) final year/semester results by many colleges and universities.
After publication of state wide merit list, all the admission process for PG courses will be completed by December 21.
