    • 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’.
