In addition, the decision states that the KEA is instructed to eliminate questions from the assessments that are not part of the 2023–24 syllabus and evaluate only the remaining questions, “keeping in view the Expert Committee report and opinion of many stakeholders and the paramount interest of protecting the legitimate interests of the students in mind.”

As a result,in KCET 2024, 50 questions from the evaluation will no longer be included: physics (9), chemistry (25), mathematics (15), and biology (11). Additionally, two questions with wrong answers will receive grace points.

The committee found some questions from chapters that had been eliminated, but they also pointed out that some of the questions were in the syllabus and in the first PUC 2022–2023 chapter that the students had already studied the year before, thus they didn’t need to be removed.

To safeguard students’ interests, maintain fair competition, and preserve the credibility of the KCET system, the government responded by ordering KEA to resolve certain questions that are not covered in the syllabus. As a result, in the assessment, KEA will exclude questions that are not covered in the curriculum and concentrate only on the remaining questions, which come from the following subjects: mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology. On their website, KEA will post the answer key and list of questions that are not on the syllabus.
