What is the Seat Allotment Process of KCET 2020?

To participate in the KCET 2020 seat allotment process, candidates must know the complete information about the seat allotment rounds of KCET 2020. Check below to get a fair idea about the KCET 2020 seat allotment rounds:  

First Round of KCET 2020 Seat Allotment:

The seat allotment for the first round will be conducted after the last date for option entry is over. The seats will be allotted to the candidates on the basis of their merit, options the candidates entered and finally the Government’s Reservation Policy. The seat allotment procedure will commence with the allotment of seats to the candidates belonging to the special categories (Sports Category, NCC and PwD).

Second Round of KCET 2020 Seat Allotment:

The seat allotment for the second round will be held for the unfilled/ surrendered/ cancelled/ fortified or newly added candidates. The same process of  seat allotment will be followed as was followed in the first round. Candidates will be provided with similar choices for confirmation or rejection of seats. And all those candidates who have opted for Choice 2 and 3 in the first round will also be eligible for admission.

Second Extended Round of KCET 2020 Seat Allotment:

In this round of the seat allotment process, candidates will be allotted seats on the same basis as in previous rounds. This round of the seat allotment process is for the candidates who are looking for a better seat than the seat allotted in earlier rounds.

KCET 2020 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 have to verify the seats alloted to them on the official KEA website

  • 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

Why Mock Allotment is conducted?

The purpose of conducting the mock allotment is to provide an indicative idea about how they will be alloted a course, college or stream based on his/her preference of options.

KCET 2020 Post-Seat-Allotment Process

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).
