As we know that the government is going to take a common preliminary exam for the non-gazetted posts in the central government. The government has decided to conduct a Common Eligibility Test (CET) in place of prelims exams for all the government departments. The score of the exam will be used to select the candidates for the higher level of examination by the different organizations for selected candidates for the posts. The test scores will be valid for a period of 3 years and will be conducted twice a year. This is going to help all the government aspirants as there will be no need to fill different applications for the different exams and you students will have to prepare for a single exam now.
