As many as 24,074 students who had passed II PU in 2021 had written CET in 2022. As per the court’s direction, 6% marks scored by these students in II PU have been deducted in the first step. In the next step, 50% of the marks obtained in PU and 50% of the marks secured in CET was considered while preparing the revised list.”
