The merit of the candidates who appear for the Common Entrance Test–2014 will be determined are detailed below:
In the case of Medical and Dental Courses, the merit will be determined only on the basis of marks obtained by candidates in Physics, Chemistry and Biology subjects taken together in the Common Entrance Test – 2014.
In the case of Indian System of Medicine and Homoeopathy Courses, the merit will be determined on the basis of marks obtained by candidates in Physics, Chemistry & Biology subjects in Common Entrance Test – 2014 and the marks obtained by candidates in Physics, Chemistry and Biology subjects in the Qualifying Examination, taken in equal proportions.
In the case of Engineering and Technology courses, the merit will be determined on the basis of marks obtained by candidates in Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics subjects in Common Entrance Test–2014 and the marks obtained by candidates in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics subjects in the Qualifying Examination, taken in equal proportions. Provided that where the merit of two or more candidates is the same, the interse merit shall be determined with reference to the marks obtained in the Common Entrance Test in Biology in the case of Medical / Dental / Indian Systems of Medicine and Homoeopathy courses and in Mathematics in the case of Engineering / Technology courses and where the marks obtained in such cases are equal then the interse merit shall be determined on the basis of the marks obtained in Chemistry in the case of Medical / Dental / Indian Systems of Medicine and Homoeopathy courses and in Physics in the case of Engineering / Technology courses and where the marks obtained are equal again the interse merit shall be determined on the basis of the marks obtained in the respective subjects in the Qualifying examination as stipulated above and where marks obtained are equal again, the interse merit shall be determined on the basis of the age of the candidate, wherein the elder candidate will be considered before the younger.
In the case of Architecture Course, the merit will be determined on the basis of marks obtained by candidates in the qualifying examination in all subjects and the (valid NATA score) taken in equal proportions. Provided that where the merit of two or more candidates is same, the interse merit shall be determined with reference to the marks obtained in NATA, where marks obtained in NATA are equal, then the interse merit shall be determined on the basis of marks obtained in Mathematics in the qualifying examination and where marks obtained in Mathematics are equal, the interse merit shall be determined on the basis of the age of the candidate, wherein the elder candidate will be considered before the younger.
NOTE: If everything as specified in the provisions to sub-clauses referred to above from (1), (2), (3) and (4) are equal, then the interse merit will be determined by draw of lots. The determination of interse merit as detailed above for selection of Government seats will be the basis for the merit list of candidates claiming benefit of reservation under Admission Rules i. e., Item 8 of Chapter – I of the brochure.
(B) Publication of merit lists:
After the completion of the entrance test, the ANSWER KEY will be published on 07-05-2014 in the KEA Website: http://kea.kar.nic.in The candidates / parents / lecturers can file their objections, if any, addressed to the “Executive Director, Karnataka Examinations Authority, Bangalore” on or before 11-05-2014 either in person or only through SPEED POST / email: email@example.com, with regard to any of the published answer Key, along with all supporting documents / justification. The objections received by the KEA will be placed before an Expert Committee, whose decision will be final for determination of the right answer key. The answer key approved by the Expert Committee will be applied during evaluation for determination of merit order. As per the merit determined by the KEA, the Medical / Dental, ISM & H, Engineering and Architecture ranks will be assigned to the eligible candidates. Separate result sheets showing the Medical / Dental, ISM & H, Engineering and Architecture ranks will be published on 27-05-2014 in all the CET-2014 examination centres and the same will also be made available on KEA Website http://kea.kar.nic.in Separate merit lists in respect of the wards of Jammu & Kashmiri migrants for the respective courses will also be prepared and published on the KEA Website. The correct answer key and the list of candidates whose results have been withheld and the reasons for withholding the results will also be published along with the results. The candidates whose results are with held for want of 2nd PUC / 12th std. Marks and date of birth such candidates / parents need not to be worried because, ranks will be assigned as and when they submit the required documents on the specified dates during office hours.
Result sheets will not be displayed in the KEA premises.
Candidates who have any objections in respect of any of the entries or problems in the result sheets, such as discrepancy / changes in the Q. E. marks, version code, NATA scores etc., except the marks secured in the Common Entrance Test, can submit their objections within three days from the date of publication of the CET – 2014 result and thereafter result will be published for such candidates. (See box item given below for details about intermediary ranks / Spot ranks i.e., ranks ending with G55, G44, G33 etc.)
The candidates are requested to verify their qualifying examination marks printed on the result sheets without fail, if there is any discrepancy with reference to qualifying examination marks the same should be brought to the notice of this office immediately for fresh assignment of ranks, if any.
Candidates whose results will be withheld for want of qualifying examination marks should submit a photocopy of their Q. E. marks card either in person or through ‘Speed Post’ to the KEA and the ranks in respect of such candidates will be published subsequently.
Request for re-totaling or revaluation of the oMr answer sheets will not be entertained, as the valuation and the subsequent scoring will be error free.
What does ‘G 55’ mean?
After the declaration of the results, the candidates may not get ranks assigned mainly for the following reasons :
For want of Q. E. marks, a candidate might have missed the rank. 2) A candidate might have marked the version code wrongly. 3) Q. E. marks may get varied due to revaluation or otherwise, when corrected, a fresh ranking becomes necessary.
The KEA computers are programmed to assign new ranks or fresh ranks to the candidates falling within the above said categories without disturbing the rank numbers assigned to the candidates whose results were declared earlier. The computer program is such that it can assign ranks in between two integers without altering the previous rank numbers. Undoubtedly, you were assigned a rank after the declaration of the results. When a rank was assigned to you, rank 1234 and 1235 had been assigned to two other candidates. When it came to assigning a rank to you, the computer found that in the normal course, your rank would have been after the candidate with rank 1234 and before the candidate with rank 1235. Therefore, the computer had to place you between 1234 and 1235.
As already said, the computer is programmed to generate large number of ranks between two integers by dividing the space alphabetically from A to Z. Then each alphabet is subdivided from 1 to 99. Now, if a new rank is required to be assigned between two integer ranks, in the first instance, the computer assigns a division number as ‘G 55’ before the previous rank. If one more rank needs to be assigned between the rank 1234 and 1234 G 55, the computer assigns a rank as 1234 G 44. If one more rank is to be assigned between 1234 G 55 and 1235, then it assigns a rank as 1234 G 66.
