Admission based on CET scores alone

Staff Reporter

BANGALORE: Next year, Common Entrance Test (CET) marks may just be on the basis of the test scores alone. At a recent meeting, the CET admissions committee reportedly recommended to the Government not to consider II PUC marks while awarding CET ranks and scrap negative marks in the entrance test.

The CET panel, as per Medical Council of India rules, agreed to make 50 per cent marks in physics, chemistry and biology (PCB) in II PUC mandatory for admission to MBBS courses in the State. Besides, aspiring medicos have to secure 50 per cent aggregate in PCB in the CET.

The Visvesvaraya Technological University has passed a resolution to make 45 per cent marks (40 per cent for Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribe students) mandatory for admission to BE courses from next year.

Minimum marks

The minimum marks in II PUC to be eligible for admission to engineering courses is 35 per cent. But the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has not prescribed any minimum marks as eligibility for BE courses. For Architecture courses, the minimum eligibility has been fixed at 40 per cent in the aptitude test.

The cabinet subcommittee on CET headed by Deputy Chief Minister M.P. Prakash is expected to look into these suggestions and recommendations at a meeting scheduled for Friday, before forwarding them to the State Cabinet for final approval.
