KCET takes into account 50 percent of Class 12 or state Pre-university Course (PUC) marks and another 50 percent from the marks scored by candidates in respective subjects in KCET 2018. Now that the final ranking is also known, candidates can seek admission based in respective colleges at government-fixed fee at approximately Rs.60,000 which is one-third less than the COMEDK fees at Rs.200,000 per annum for these seats.
