KCET 2020 Syllabus

The official syllabus of KCET 2020 will be set by the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) for candidates preparing for the examination. The syllabus includes the topics relevant to the entrance exam. According to the KCET 2020 syllabus, there will be three subjects that students have to study - Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. Candidates must go through the subject-wise topics to prepare for the entrance exam. While studying, candidates must check which topics have more weightage and what topics require more time to prepare. This way, it will become easier for students to make changes in their preparation schedule, if necessary.
