The Karnataka High Court has proposed a new formula to address the dilemma regarding 2022 Joint Entrance Test (CET) for admission to professional courses in the state. The court is hearing a dispute regarding not considering the PUC marks of students who have passed PUC (Pre University Course) in 2020-21. The court in its suggestion on Thursday said that the PUC and CET scores may be considered in the ratio of 25:75. He said that students and the government can find a common ground with this arrangement. The Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) has notified that the marks of the students of the 2020-21 batch in the second PUC examination will not be considered while deciding the ranks and only their CET scores will be considered.

The students were admitted to the next class in 2020-21 on the basis of internal marks due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of these students have applied for admission to professional courses this year. They will appear in the exam this time along with the students who have appeared for the second PUC exam in 2021-22 during the regular course. Some of the students who re-appeared in the re-examination have requested in the court that the PUC scores of 2020-21 and CET scores should be considered in the ratio of 50:50 for their CET ranks.

A bench of Justice RS Krishna Kumar is hearing seven separate petitions filed by the students in this regard. The court on Thursday made an oral observation that if KEA agreed to adopt the 25:75 formula, 90 per cent of the problem would be solved. Additional Advocate General Dhyan Chinappa sought time to file the government’s reply on the suggestion. The next hearing in the matter will be on August 22.
