In short, it has to catalyse reforms in the examination and testing systems, impart training on these endeavours and extend the use of its electronic facilities to other institutions to bring in objectivity, transparency and efficiency."THE RESULTS ARE DELIVERED IN 24 HOURS WHICH IS A RECORD ACHIEVEMENT ON NATIONAL LEVEL."
