 CET Exam Results - 2011
Medical ranks surge, engineering sees dip
Monday, 30 May 2011: The results of the Common Entrance Test, the qualifying examination for admission to professional courses, announced here on Monday, recorded mixed trends.

While the number of candidates awarded medical ranks went up from 5,942 in 2010 to 13,197, engineering ranks dipped from 73,600 to 64,963, the lowest in recent years.

Given there are over 81,000 engineering seats on offer in the 170-odd engineering colleges, the number of candidates who have met the eligibility requirements for engineering courses is too low.

The dip in numbers is a direct fallout of the new AICTE (All-India Council for Technical Education) rules that increased the eligibility cut-off from 45 to 50 per cent for engineering courses.

Some 728 candidates were allotted architecture ranks and while 54,804 for courses classified under Indian Systems of Medicine and Homeopathy. However, 9,036 students had a tense day as they were incorrectly declared having not made it when they logged in initially. Later they were assigned ‘spot ranks'.

In the medical and dental entrance test, the top rank was bagged by Ramya R., from MES PU College in Bangalore, while the engineering rank was secured by Aditya Gaonkar, the State IIT topper, who was ranked 151. While only three and two girls, respectively, made it to these rank lists, the top nine architecture were bagged by girls, led by Shreya Daffney from Poornaprajna College, Udupi.

In all, 1.07 lakh candidates appeared for CET 2011. Of those who made the cut, 13,300 are Kannada medium students.

State Higher Education Minister V.S. Acharya attributed the increase in medical ranks to good performance in the Biology PU paper.

In 2010, over 15,000 engineering seats found no takers.
