A technical committee constituted by the State government has suggested an average deduction of six marks in each subject from 2nd PU marks of Covid-19 year (2020-21) students so that their CET rankings this year will be ‘normalised’ with 2021-22 batch 2nd PU students. The committee came up with two sets of solutions based on complex calculations. But in the end, it suggested deducting an average of 6 marks from 2020-21 students. It also suggested increasing “seats in IT related branches in colleges as per previous years preferred selection of seats may be increased by about 10 per cent.”
