Speaking to NDTV, Deputy Chief Minister Dr Ashwathnarayan said that the registration for KCET will commence on June 15. “We have decided to conduct the CET exam on August 28th and 29th. 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.
