The Karnataka Common Entrance Test (KCET 2016) will be not be postponed. The exam will be conducted as per the scheduled dates, that is on May 4 and 5. In the wake of II-PU chemistry question paper leaks twice in 10 days, the education department was planning to postpone the exam.
The first rank in all the four streams – medical and dental, Indian System of Medicine and Homeopathy (ISHM), B.Sc. Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences was secured by Girija Agarawal of the Narayana PU College. The top marks in engineering, architecture, B Tech (Agriculture) and pharmacy was scored by Srinidhi Prabhu, a student from the same institute.
High court has now ordered the government to look into this never ending clash of the fee structure. Where the college managements are adamant on the government allowing them to charge higher fees, the Government is against the notion. The High Court has asked the both to settle the dispute in lieu of the soon approaching Common Entrance Test, KCET-2014, which is to be held on May 1, 2 and 3 for seats in undergraduate professional courses.
Seems like the Karnataka state government is headed towards yet another face-off with private professional college managements over the Common Entrance Test (CET) 2014.
