Registration will be open from June 15,” Dr Ashwathnarayan said adding that the relaxations will be provided to the students in the absence of board exams.
“We are giving relaxation in terms of qualifying for the exam. A pass is good enough for qualification. We will not be taking the qualifying exam marks - only rankings will be given based on the CET exams. These decisions are taken in the interests of the students of Karnataka in the backdrop of the pandemic,” the minister said.
KCET Exam Pattern
The Maths and Biology exams will be held on the first day while Physics and Chemistry on the second. The PUC marks will not be taken into account this year and each subject will carry 60 marks.
Students will be required to score a minimum mark to clear the entrance test. On the admission to various science courses, Mr Narayan said, "We are considering admitting science students into BSc degree courses through CET. If possible, from this year onwards."
The Karnataka government decided to promote the PUC second year students to the next level without holding the exam in view of the disruption caused by the COVID-19.
