The Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) had on Tuesday declared the results for the state Common Entrance Test (CET) 2017 which was conducted on May 2 and 3, 2017. Among those who bagged the top ranks were Rakshita Ramesh and Sumanth Hedge with the first and second ranks, neither of whom had prepared specifically for CET.

“I had my eyes on JEE Mains and Advanced and did not really concentrate on CET while I was preparing,” says Sumanth Hedge who secured rank 2 in the state entrance test. A student of VVS Sardar Patel PU College, Bengaluru, Hedge scored 177 out of 180 in the CET exam while also managing a score of 320 of 360 marks in JEE mains. He wishes to pursue Mechanical or Electrical engineering from an Indian Institute of Technology.

Rakshita Ramesh, a student of Sri Bhagwan Mahaveer Jain College, has secured rank 1 in the CET 2017 exam. Her scores range from 56 in Mathematics to 59 in Chemistry. However, just like Sumanth, she also gave attention to all India level entrance examination.

“My main focus was NEET. I could clear CET because I practiced for NEET,” says Rakshita, adding that she relied heavily on NCERT to know most of the base concepts. Compared to other competitive exams, she found Karnataka CET 2017 easier.

“We expected a lot of HOTS (Higher Order Thinking Skill) questions, but weren’t many of them. Many questions were completely theory based like those of board exams,” says she. Rakshita aspires to pursue MBBS at a medical college in Bengaluru, aiming for neurology.

Both the toppers say they relied on knowing the basic concepts of the NCERT while preparing for all the exams. They advise future aspirant to focus on their studies and give it their best shot.

    Reservation is not a violation of an Article 14........then why NEET 2017......Dual standard........ If reservation in the Education,Job,politics everywhere is not a violation of an Article 14.....then why in the NEET 2017 different papers is a violation of an Article14?..............Due to reservation there is no equality of all the students as well as the citizens even though having an equal marks or qualification........Before presenting a false pretex of violation of an Article 14 in NEET 2017 to the courts and giving the judgements about the NEET......the judiciary.authority and the government must completely remove the reservation system from the cons ution as well as from the governance.....it is better and in the interest of the country that the judiciary and the government can identify those selfish elements who have misinterpreting and misusing the Indian laws and rules and pe ioning in the courts to cancel and abolish the holy NEET......

      We have born in a great country........Here justice is sold with money power.......And So..........for the sake of only 9 Tamil students( it is right to say.....Tamil Private medical college Mafias)........the Madras/Madurai high court's corrupted judges has imposed an interim stay on the NEET results for the mentally harassing and disturbing about 11 lakhs students.....after taking a bribe from the Tamil medical college mafias as they have been opposing the NEET from the begining..... While 11 lakhs students have been eagerly waiting for the NEET 2017 results................ In our great India, NEET 2013 was cancelled by one supreme court judge before his last day of retirement after taking a huge bribe from the Private medical college owners.........Where is the justice for the common man in India?...... we do not have any trust in the Indian Judiciary system as well as politicians......
