The Karnataka Common Entrance Test (KCET) revised result 2022 will be declared on October 1, 2022. KEA will be making the result link live on the official website (cetonline.karnataka.gov.in). The revised result will be based on the suggestions provided by the committee led by Dr. B. Thimme Gowda, Vice Chairman of the Karnataka State Higher Education Council.
State High Court gave the clearance to the examination authorities to go ahead with the revised mechanism to keep the result of the 2020-21 batch normalised. According to the technical committee, six marks should be deducted in each subject from the 2nd PU marks of the 2020-21 batch students. This will make the CET rankings normalised with 2021-22 batch 2nd PU students.
Earlier it was suggested to have two sets of solutions based on complex calculations, later, this idea was discarded, and the committee went ahead with a deduction of six marks from each subject.
On July 30, KEA issued a notice in which it was mentioned that second-year PU marks of students from the 2020-21 batch would not be considered for the CET ranking. Only the CET marks will be considered. However, the 2021-22 batch students were ranked on the regular 50:50 ratio of 2nd PU marks and the entrance exam marks.
In 2020-21, the students were awarded internal marks based on an alternative assessment due to the pandemic. Many students who were reappearing for CET from the 2020-21 batch challenged this note. The official judgment of the court said, “Impugned note is contrary to the principles of legitimate expectation, and the same deserves to be quashed.”
The revised KCET 2022 scorecard will include the personal information, roll number, subject-wise marks, and overall marks obtained by the candidate in the entrance test. Approximately 2 lakh students appeared for the KCET 2022 test, which was conducted between June 16 and June 18, 2022. The qualifying students will be eligible to take admission to various undergraduate courses in Engineering, Architecture, Yoga & Naturopathy, Veterinary, Farm Science, and Pharma courses.
