BENGALURU: As many as 1,62,439 candidates (80.94 percent of the overall registered candidates) appeared for Biology and 1,89,522 (93.90%) for Maths examination, on the first day of CET. 

Higher Education Minister Dr C N Ashwath Narayan, talking to the media after his visit to an exam centre at Sheshadripuram College, said CET results will be announced on September 20 and the counselling process would commence in the first week of October.
