bangalore: Some students who passed the Pre-University Course (PUC) in 2020-21 but also take the Common Entrance Test (CET) in 2022, have appealed to the High Court.

These students have challenged an alleged grade from the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) disregarding 2020-21 grades for entry into professional courses in 2022.

“Grades of students who passed out in 2021 will not be calculated for CET grading purposes and only CET grades will be considered for grading purposes,” the petition cites a KEA note.

A single judge bench of SR Krishna Kumar heard the petition on Monday.

Additional Advocate General Dhyan Chinnappa advised the High Court, which is hearing the application, that the orientation of students for admission to professional courses had not yet started.

The AAG informed the court that counseling will not begin until the HC hears the motion, after which the matter was adjourned to August 18.

The petition was filed by Keerthana YH and a dozen other students.

“Qualifying exam scores are generally higher in the nature of exams and CET scores are generally lower. Excluding qualifying exam scores and taking only CET scores for half the proportion would completely disrupt each student’s merit matrix,” the petition claims.
