The two-day Goa Common Entrance Test (GCET) will be answered by 2,945 students from Saturday, July 4, at 10am. A separate exam centre has been prepared for eight students from the containment zone areas in Vasco region after they contacted the directorate of technical education’s (DTE) helpline.
For the students from the containment zone, the Institute of Ship Building will serve as the exam centre, officials said. No students from other containment zone areas have approached the DTE seeking special arrangements for them to answer the exam, a source said.
“It will be mandatory for students to wear masks to be able to enter the exam centres. There will be thermal screening carried out and each students will be asked to sanitise their hands before entering the centre. Students will be allowed to take a bottle of sanitiser and a transparent bottle of water with them inside the exam centre. But no gadgets as usual will be allowed inside,” an official said.
Some exam centres have already been changed by the DTE to move them away from the areas with increase in Covid-19 cases and students have been notified about it accordingly.
