What is Low Rank in KCET?

Every year almost 4 lakh students appear for the Karnataka Common Entrance Test (KCET) for securing a seat in one of the KCET participating colleges. Usually, every year the vacant seats in these participating institutes get exhausted by the time the counselling process is conducted for those who secure a rank between 70,000 and 1,00,000. So, those students who secure a rank beyond the 1,00,000 mark can be technically categorised under the KCET Low-rank holders. The students must remember that their journey does not end if they fall under this category. Here is more to that.

There are many colleges in the Karnataka state which accepts the admission request of the low scorers in KCET. The only disparity in such a case is that the students will not be able to secure a seat in one of the popular or top KCET participating colleges. Top KCET participating colleges fill up their vacant seats within 70,000 and 1,00,000 rank. Still, there remains a good number of colleges which provides admission to those who could not secure the desired rank in this highly-competitive state-level engineering entrance exam. The following table will particularly deal with those colleges which grant admission to those who fall under the “Low-Rank” category.
