Will KCET Go Online from Next Year?

We intend to take all competitive examinations conducted by Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) online. And as a part of this effort, we will start conducting the CET examinations online from Next Year.

The Higher Education Minster, GT Deve Gowda gave the above statement on 9th January 2019 in regards to conducting the KCET for engineering seats in the online mode. He also mentioned that there is adequate infrastructure to hold the KCET in the exam centres in the online mode. However, there is no clarification as to when the same will be implemented.

There have been many complaints regarding the leak of question paper and errors while taking the KCET exam in physical mode. Therefore, a decision like this to change the mode of examination will help improve transparency and standard method of checking the answers.

Since most entrance examinations are now being conducted in the online mode, there are chances that the KCET will also be made an online computer based test rather than an offline exam. Till then, let us wait for the official notification regarding the mode of the examination.

    • The examination center for writing ‘CET 2019’ in respect of all the candidates will be assigned by the KEA Computers on random basis. The candidates who have passed or are appearing for Q. E. within Karnataka should write the ‘CET 2019’ in a place within the district in which they have studied 2nd PUC or 12th standard. If the ‘CET 2019’ examination centers are located in more than one place in a
      district, the candidate can choose any one of the places.

      So for example If the candidate has studied his / her 2nd PUC / 12th standard in ‘Bangalore or any place in
      the Bangalore district’, then he / she has to write CET only in ‘Bangalore’. If he / she has studied in
      ‘Bellary Dist’, then he / she can write CET either in ‘HOSPET’ or in ‘BELLARY’.

  24. Hi, I applied for cet under general catogary and paid the fees amount as rs500.I want to clarify wheather I should pay Rs500 or rs650. If it is Rs650 how to pay remaining Rs 150

    • Hi, if you are a general candidate from Karnataka, you have to pay Rs. 500. There may be additional charges of the bank that might be applicable but when you are paying the fee, your total is shown on the screen or when you are paying at the bank. So don’t worry, if you are a general category candidate from Karnataka, your amount is 500 not 650.

  25. Two major points of confusion in the KCET 2019 application form. 1. They have asked for the marks though the 12th exam has barely begun. 2. They have asked for principal’s / gazetted officer signature. Are these needed only at the counselling / doc verification stage?

    • Hi, if you are appearing for class 12th in 2019 then there must be an option to tell them that you are appearing candidate like you may be asked to enter your board exam roll number. If not, then you can leave the column blank or write appearing in 2019.
      Yes, the signatures are important as the documents are verified both before and later in the admission procedure.
