If you're clearing the Common Entrance Test (CET) this year, you can pick the professional seat of your choice from home. Integral to the online exercise is the verification of documents. Once done, the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) will return the certificates and keep attested copies. Once an acknowledgement card and verification slip is given, students are explained about the seat-selection process. They will get secure IDs and passwords to open the page where they have to enter the options.
They can enter options of all disciplines they are eligible for in the same form. For instance, if your first priority is medical in a particular college, second is electronic engineering and third is medical, again, in another college, you must mention them in that order. Colleges have to be mentioned through college codes. In case of engineering, branches, too, have to be specified using the course code. Options to choose seats are unlimited: if there are 33 medical colleges, one can have 33 options; these can be changed till the last date. Allotment starts with medical, followed by ISMH, engineering and architecture.Consider that a candidate gives the list of options like this:
Allotment for medical starts first. Assume that a candidate gets a medical seat in 003 college. During allotment for engineering, if a seat is available in 001 college - his first option - the software will give that engineering seat to the candidate and put the medical seat back in the pool. That medical seat will be available for the next candidate. In case the engineering seats at 001 and 002 colleges are not available, his medical seat stays with him.As in the previous years, there will be three rounds of counselling. After the first round, a student has three options: 1. He can join college; 2. He can seek better options afresh. If he's not happy with that, he could continue with the first-round result; 3. Surrender seat and apply afresh for next round. This is repeated for the second and third rounds of counselling. Seats not allotted or surrendered are pooled into the next round. Students are given a seven-day gap to exercise the option.
