ERA (Educational Rating and Assessment) Foundation is a non-profit organization that will conduct the Uni-GAUGE (undergraduate Engineering Entrance Examination) 2018 and COMEDK UGET 2018. ERA Foundation will conduct the Uni-GAUGE – E and COMEDK 2018 as a combined entrance examination. Candidates who want admission to undergraduate engineering courses in the Participating Member Universities or Institutions of ERA Foundation will have to take the entrance test that will be conducted on 13th May 2018 along with COMEDK. The Uni-GAUGE score will give the candidates admission to BE and B. Tech courses at the respective Universities or Institutions of Uni-GAUGE 2018.
Earlier, COMEDK UGET and Uni-GAUGE were conducted as two separate examinations. COMEDK 2018 was conducted in offline mode in the state of Karnataka while Uni-GAUGE was conducted in the online mode. But now, there is only one common entrance examination that will be held on 13th May 2018. This has been done to reduce the burden on students who want to take both the exams and have to prepare for both the exams separately. The application form and the admit card which is also known as the Test Admission Ticket (TAT) of both the examinations will be same.
