KCET 2020 – Karnataka High Court asks state to reconsider decision on holding exams. The Karnataka High Court has asked the Karnataka Government to place its decision on KCET 2020 at 2.30 pm tomorrow. Karnataka Common Entrance Test (KCET) is the state entrance exam for admissions to the engineering and pharmacy admissions in the state and is scheduled to be held on July 30 and 31. More than 1.94 lakh students appear for the exam every year.
The government is expected to come up with a reply tomorrow that is on July 29, 2020. A total of three petitions were filed against the conduct of Karnataka CET 2020 during the pandemic. The exam has been scheduled to be held on July 30 and 31, 2020.
Reviewing the petition filed for postponement of the exam, the court asked the government to reconsider its decision of conducting the entrance exam on the scheduled dates, July 30 and 31. CJ Abhay Oka and Justice Sandesh who comprised the bench hearing the case, had questions on how the exam was to be conducted
“How can students in containment zones give exams? They cannot step out, there are 6000 containment zones. Please tell us that”, the bench asked. The petitioners were also rapped for not approaching the authorities but the court at the last minute considering that the exam schedule was announced in May 2020.
The advocate for students, Anubha Sahai said, “the petition was filed by students and later on NSUI added their name without even informing students”. The bench argued that many students might be ready to give the exams while this plea is coming in the 11th hour. The bench told the petitioners that this was not an SSLC exam where exams could be conducted later on. “Your petition is not maintainable. You have not gone to the Authorities,” said the Court.
“State Government has to place its decision on record tomorrow by 2:30 pm,” directed the court. The exams thus would be or would not be conducted will be cleared tomorrow that is on July 29, 2020. “The Court also expresses hope that the State would look into the issues seriously,” added Karnataka High Court.
