Usually, the Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) usually conducts its counselling first for the government seats in engineering and other allied seats spread over state’s aided and unaided private colleges.
On may 16, KEA has opened the link to upload the board exam marks by candidates who have appeared for the Karnataka Common Entrance Test (KCET) 2018 and the results are due now since all boards have announced their PUC or class 12 exam results, including CBSE and ICSE.
KCET considers 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. Since marks are already known to many candidates, the final ranking will help them seek admission based on it in respective colleges at government-fixed fee which is one-third less than the COMEDK fees for these seats.
