KCET 2020 Seat Allotment Process
KEA will issue the seat matrix for each discipline for the allotment of the seats. The seat matrix will be prepared as per college wise, course wise and category wise on the KEA website. Allotment of the seats will take place in three rounds. Each round will consist of three phases and each phase consists of the number of iterations.
KCET First Round Seat Allotment 2020
In the first round candidates are allotted seats in the order of merit-based. As per the priority entered by the candidates, steps are taken in that way. The reservation policy of the Government is also kept in mind.
Thus concerned authority will first allot the seats based on the merit and priority of options and continues in the same order. If at any stage in round 1, the seats got cancelled then that will be considered for allotment of a seat in the next iteration. Therefore multiple iterations may take place in the 1st Phase. The process continues until the last seat is not filled in each round. That means the candidates will always be climbing upwards both in options and in a roster.
Second Round Allotment
After the 1st round, the seats that remain unfilled under all the Rural and Kannada medium quota of the reserved categories will be converted to General of the respective reserved categories (SCR & SCK to SCG, STR & STK to STG, 1R & 1K to 1G, 2AR & 2AK to 2AG, 2BR & 2BK to 2BG, 3AR & 3AK to 3AG, 3BR & 3BK to 3BG) before the commencement of 2nd Phase. Mind that the seats are only offered to the reserved category candidates including GMR & GMK category candidates in the 2nd round. Rise in the vacancies during this allotment of seats will remain in the same category and will be offered to the same reserved category candidates. Keynotes from the 2nd round are:
- Only reserved category candidates are considered for allotment
- GM candidates will not be considered.
- GM and SNQ seats will also be not considered for allotment of seats.
Important points regarding the 2nd Seat Allotment Are:
Conversion of seats will be adopted before the commencement of 2nd Phase of allotment.
The reserved category seat becomes vacant if the reserved category candidates are allotted with a General Merit / respective reserved category seat during the 2nd phase of allotment. Such seats are treated as ‘CONSEQUENTIAL VACANCIES’.
Third Round KCET Seat Allotment
Seats which are vacant in the 2nd round are moved to the 3rd round. The remaining unfilled seats under General reserved categories (SCG, STG, 1G, 2AG, 2BG, 3AG, 3BG, GMR and GMK), with reserved special category seats, will be converted to the General merit category and will be offered to the candidates of that category. The Rural and Kannada medium reserved category seats that arise during the 3rd Phase of allotment and if remains un-allotted then the same seat will be converted to the General of the respective reserved categories only if there are no seats in the respective general category and will be made available for allotment only to the respective reserved category candidates during 3rd Phase of allotment. In this round also, the order of seat allotment remains the same as the above two i.e
Special Feature of 3rd Seat Allotment Round
- If seats are vacant then the reserved category will be converted to GM automatically and will be offered to all the eligible candidates from 1st to the last rank based on the priority of options entered.
- It stops only when there is no seat in the reserved category and no change in the allotment
