The High Court is hearing an appeal by the KEA challenging the September 3 judgment of a single-judge bench which had quashed a note by the Authority issued on July 30.

As per the quashed KEA note, only the CET marks of these students would be used for ranking them for admission to professional courses. Under the existing rules, the rankings are done taking into consideration marks from II PU and CET equally in a 50:50 ratio.

The KEA had done away with this formula for 2020-21 batch students who are reappearing for CET in the current year as their II PU marks in the previous year was given internally by colleges. The students had challenged this in the HC.

The single-judge bench had asked the KEA to come up with a new formula and even suggested a 25:75 ratio for the 2020-21 students. The KEA did not consider this suggestion and the bench quashed the note itself. The division bench too had suggested coming up with an amicable solution.
