Maharashtra SET now online

The State Eligibility Test (SET) in Maharashtra and Goa for post-graduate (PG) students from different streams to qualify as lecturer is now online.

The University of Pune (UoP), the official agency that holds the State Eligibility Test (SET) exams has initiated an online process for conduction the examinations, they have made e-admit cards to 35,000 candidates available online. The test will feature 26 subjects and will be held at 12 centres and will eliminate the absence of possession of admit cards by students. The UoP's Computer Network Centre (CNC), which has been handling much of the varsity's online initiatives, will implement the online registrations. The online system will not only ease the workload on the existing manpower, but save time that was otherwise taken up by procedures involved in postal delivery of admit cards.

The UoP will be conducting the SET in January and September 2009, as per the approval given by the University Grants Commission (UGC) and the steering committee for SET is considering introduction of an online enrolment procedure, to add to the online admit card system.
