KCET 2022: KEA will declare the revised result at kea.kar.nic.in, karresults.nic.in following the orders of Karnataka HC on preparing new CET rankings.
The Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) has announced that it will declare the Karnataka Common Entrance Test (KCET ) 2022 revised result on October 1. KCET 2022 results will be declared on the official website – kea.kar.nic.in.
The announcement comes after the order of the Karnataka High Court asking KEA to follow the suggestions of the technical committee on preparing the KCET rankings. The formula will be applied to students who passed Karnataka’s second PUC in 2020-21.
“The revised UGCET 2022 results as per the orders of the High Court of Karnataka, shall be announced on October 1, 2022,” KEA’s official notification said.
The committee headed by DR B Thimme Gowda, Vice Chairman of the Karnataka State Higher Education Council suggested: “The qualifying marks of 2021 PU batch students shall be deducted by an average of 6 marks in Physics, 5 marks in Chemistry, and 7 marks in Mathematics, that results in a total deduction of 6 marks for 100 qualifying marks.”
The KEA had submitted the proposal in a sealed envelope to a division bench headed by Acting Chief Justice Alok Aradhe on Thursday. On Friday, the HC directed the authorities to go ahead with the CET ranking based on this formula.
Karnataka Government had challenged the HC order directing KEA to consider 50% second PUC marks of students of the 2020-21 batch to prepare the KCET 2022 rankings. Karnataka Higher Education minister CN AshwathNarayan termed the HC order ‘unfair’ for students of the current batch.
Earlier in September, a single-judge bench of the Karnataka HC dismissed a notification issued by the KEA by which second-year pre-university exam marks of students from the 2020-21 batch were not considered for rankings in the entrance to professional courses. The HC directed KEA to redo the entire rank list after considering 50% PUC marks and 50% CET marks of all students.
KCET result 2022 was declared on July 30 for over 2 lakh candidates. A total of 2,10,829 students appeared for the KCET 2022 exam held on June 16 and 17.
