Dear Student,

After the KCET seat allotment, it is mandatory for all the students to visit the allotted institute for admission and seat confirmation. In case any candidate fails to visit the campus for admission or to confirm their seats, then his/ her seat is canceled.

You can check KCET Seat Allotment to understand the rules & regulations.

However, you need not worry as you can contact the official authorities of KCET who may help you out with the situation. You can call them on 08023460460 or email them on http://kea.kar.nic.in/ to discuss your query.

Dear Student,

KCET clearly states that the student must have at least 7years of studies in Karnataka. But to get into Karnataka colleges you can attempt JEE Main or COMEDK. COMEDK gets you into the same college as KCET but there are a lesser number of colleges and the fee is higher comparatively. But if you have special categories like Defence you might be exempted. Read the KCET Eligibility Criteria once to check your eligibility.
