KCET 2018 Counselling is tentatively scheduled for start from June 14, 2018. Option entry is now open for all registered and verified candidates. The last date for verification of documents is stipulated for June 22, 2018. Candidates must complete their document verification to be able to go for option entry and other stages of seat allotment.
The selection of the candidates for admission to various courses in all the participating colleges will be managed through the centralized counselling process. Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) is the organizing authority for the counselling process.
Counselling for KCET is conducted in both online and offline mode for the convenience of students.
|Name of the Organisation||Karnataka Education Authority (KEA)|
|Exam Name||Karnataka Common Entrance Test 2018 (KCET)|
|Date of Exam||April 18 & 19, 2018|
|Commencement of Counselling Process||June 14, 2018|
|No. of counselling rounds||3|
|Special Quota||Supernumerary quota which can benefit General category students too|
The counselling process for KCET has been changed as the qualified students would be filtered through 3 rounds.
Step 1- Candidates after successfully qualifying KCET 2018 exam, have to attend the KCET counselling, for verification of their documents at designated
Helpline Centers. This process will be done in offline mode.
Step 2- Verified candidates will be provided with a secret key and certificate submission form. This key will help the candidates to log in to the official portal and to lock their choices and preferences. After they have locked their choices the KEA (Karnataka Examinations Authority) will provide them with the date to change or update their locked choices. This process will be done in online mode.
Step 3- The last step is to obtain the allotment order by the board. This KCET allotment order will bring the candidates closer to their admission in their desired college.
This quota is entirely different from the seat matrix issued by KEA. 5% of the seats in each college and in each course will be reserved for the candidates whose annual income of the family and from all other sources of income is less than Rs 6 Lacs. All candidates including the ‘General category’ candidates are eligible to avail this quota.
This applies to all the engineering colleges. Under this quota, the tuition fee prescribed by the Government in that particular college will be waived off. A candidate has to pay the other fees only. This supernumerary quota though is not available for Architecture Course.
The merit list of qualified candidates is prepared after evaluating their cumulative score of the opted subjects in both 10+2 or equivalent exam and in KCET 2018:
