Karnataka CET Results 2014:
Many from among the 1.39 lakh students who appeared for the chemistry paper on the second day of the Karnataka Common Entrance Test (CET) said they found the question paper tough. Coaching centres that analysed the chemistry paper also agreed with the students. The chemistry KCET paper this year was more difficult than last year’s. An average student can score only up to 25 marks. There were only 15 easy questions, 30 of the moderate level and 15 questions difficult. The question paper standard was equal to that of the JEE (Main) paper. Students had to spend a lot of time on some theory based questions, and many of them felt that the paper was lengthy. In short, the Karnataka CET chemistry paper came as a surprise to students as the difficulty level was raised.
The physics paper was easy and lacking in “intelligent, higher-order thinking questions. This year, there were 20 questions from I PU syllabus, which is unusual in the pattern of 14:46 ratio of I and II year PU syllabus respectively. A Karnataka Examinations Authority release said 99.1 per cent of the students who had registered for the KCET-2014 attended the physics test while 99.09 per cent attendance was registered for the chemistry test.
