The KCET hearing is adjourned to September 22

A two-judge bench of the Karnataka High Court comprising Acting Chief Justice Alok Aradhe and Justice S Vishwajith Shetty on Monday adjourned the Karnataka Common Entrance Test (KCET) hearing to September 22.

The two-judge bench directed both parties to come up with a workable solution that will benefit both, more than 1.75 lakh freshers and about 24,000 repeaters of KCET 2022.

After a single judge, Justice Krishna Kumar, on September 3 allowed the KCET repeaters’ plea and ordered a revaluation of the KCET ranking considering 50% of qualifying examination (QE) marks and 50% of the CET marks, the state government filed an appeal in the Karnataka High Court before a two-judge bench. The state government stated that considering 50% QE marks for repeaters, it will be unfair for more than 1.75 lakh freshers.

KEA evaluated the CET rankings of repeaters from last year that dropped and reappeared in 2022 based only on 100% CET results, similar to the 2021 evaluation. However, qualifying- unfairly, repeaters filed a petition in HC after which the decision turned in their favour.
