Initially the scores would be used by the three major recruitment agencies - RRB, SSC, IBPS. However, over a period of time it is expected that other recruitment agencies in the Central Government would adopt the same.

Further, it would be open for other agencies in the public as well as private domain to adopt it if they so choose. Thus, in the long run, the CET score could be shared with other recruiting agencies in the Central Government, State Governments/Union Territories, Public Sector Undertaking and Private Sector. This would help such organizations in saving costs and time spent on recruitment.

Scheduling Tests and Choosing Exam Centres by Candidates under CET

Candidates would have the facility of registering on a common portal and give a choice of Centres. Based on availability, they would be allotted Centres. The ultimate aim is to reach a stage wherein candidates can schedule their own tests at Centres of their choice. CET will be conducted at over 1000 centres so that every district will have at least one exam centre including the 117 aspirational districts. Also, registration of applicants, generation of roll number/admit cards, display of marks, merit list, etc will be done online.
