What to do after KCET 2021 Seat Allotment?

After the completion of the seat allotment process, the candidates will be provided with four choices. The choices offered to the candidates post seat allotment process is explained in details:

Choice 1: The candidate is satisfied with the seats allocated to him/her and he/she does not want to participate in the further seat allotment rounds. The willing candidate has to pay the requisite fee, download the admission order and report at the Institute/College where he/she has been allocated a seat. Finally, the candidate will be required to report back to KEA confirming the joining in the college/Institute failing to do so will lead to the cancellation of the seat assigned to him/her. Even if the candidate has completed all the steps and yet could not report to the allocated college, his/her admission will be cancelled and will not be eligible for seat allotment in the following rounds. It will also lead to the forfeiture of the fee paid by the candidate and such seats will be thrown back to the pool.

Choice 2: The candidate is satisfied with the seat allocated to him/her but wants to participate in the subsequent seat allotment rounds. In this case, if the candidate is alloted a higher option, then the previous lower option gets cancelled automatically. If the candidate is not offered a higher option, then the seat allocated earlier to the candidate remains as it is.

Choice 3:  The candidate is not satisfied with the seat allocated to him/her and wants to participate in the subsequent round of seat allotment process. The candidate has to surrender the seat alloted to him/her and have to re-enter the already entered options.

Choice 4: The candidate is not satisfied with the seat allocated to him/her and the candidate wants to withdraw completely from the subsequent seat allotment rounds. In this case, the seat alloted to the candidate will be cancelled and he/she will not be able to participate in the further rounds of the seat allotment procedure.

Note: In case the candidates fail to opt for any of the above-mentioned choices, the candidature of such candidates will be cancelled automatically and will not be considered for the further seat allotment rounds (If any).

Steps to Cancel KCET Seat Allotment

By following the table given below, candidates can check the process that can be followed by the candidates for the cancellation of seats in KCET 2021:




In the first or second round of seat allotment, if a candidate who has been allotted seat wishes to surrender or cancel the seat before the last date of option entry for second extended round, then, INR 5000 will be deducted as processing fee and the remaining fee will be refunded.


In the first or second round of seat allotment, if a candidate has been allotted a seat and he or she has not reported to the college, or surrenders the seat after second extended round completion, then, in that case, the entire fee will be forfeited.


In the second extended round, if a candidate surrenders the seat allotted, then, the complete fee will be forfeited.


In a case, where a candidate does not return the original admission order,green card, verification slip or bank challan, then, he/ she will not be allowed to surrender or cancel his /her seat.

KCET 2021 Mock Allotment

The mock allotment procedure will be initiated once the option entry process is concluded. The mock allotment of seats will be done so as to make the candidates get used to the process which will ensure the candidates do not commit any mistake:

  • The candidates will be able to alter their choices according to their preference on the official website

  • The candidates have to enter their final choices before the last date

  • The seats allotted to the candidates in the mock allotment round may differ from the seats allotted to them in the real allotment

  • The candidates can view the details of the seats alloted to them according to their priority of options

  • In case a candidate is not allocated a seat during the mock allotment process, he/she must verify the entered options and are suggested to enter more options

  • After the mock allotment process, the candidate must not report to the Institute in which they were allocated a seat and instead wait for the result of the real allotment process

  • The candidates can still access their account and continue making  edits to the choices entered till the last date for real allotment of seats

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.

Sorry to say but a student who has studied in Andhra is not eligible to write KCET in Karnataka. In order to get eligible for KCET, the candidate must have passed from a recognized institution situated in Karnataka only. Moreover, the institute must have been established in Karnataka for a minimum period of 7 years as of July 1 of the examination year.
