The Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) has introduced some significant changes to the KCET counselling process for the year 2023. These changes aim to streamline the admission process and make it more convenient for the candidates. Below are the key changes and the revised option entry process for KCET 2023 counselling.
One of the major changes in KCET 2023 counselling is the introduction of a new option entry process. Unlike previous years, the option entry process will now be conducted online. Candidates will have the convenience of entering their course and college preferences in a single window. The options will be ranked based on the candidates’ preferences, making the process more efficient.
In a move to simplify the counselling process, KCET 2023 will see a combined counselling process for all courses. This means that candidates can apply for both engineering and medical courses in the same round of counselling. This change is aimed at reducing the hassle for candidates who may be interested in multiple streams and ensures a smoother admission process.
To provide more opportunities for candidates, the number of counselling rounds has been increased from 5 to 6 for KCET 2023. This change allows candidates to participate in more rounds and increase their chances of getting admission to their preferred college and course.
The last date for submitting the choice form has been was extended to July 15, 2023. This extension gives candidates more time to carefully consider their options and make well-informed decisions during the counselling process.
To cover the administrative expenses of the revised counselling process, the counselling fee has been increased to Rs. 1,000 for KCET 2023. Candidates should keep this in mind while proceeding with the counselling process.
To take part in the option entry process for KCET 2023, candidates need to follow these steps:
Candidates who had obtained a seat in any discipline through KEA in previous years and not surrendered the seat before the last date fixed for entry of KCET options for the respective disciplines will not be eligible for allotment of a seat in the same discipline during 2023. However, they remain eligible for seat allotment in other disciplines.
Candidates must complete their document verification to participate in KCET 2023 option entry. The following documents are required:
The KEA will release the KCET 2023 seat allotment results for rounds 1 and round 2 on the official website. Candidates can check their seat allotment status using their Karnataka CET number. It’s important to note that the authorities will also release a mock round seat allotment before the actual allotment to give candidates an idea of their chances of getting their preferred seat.
The revamped KCET 2023 counselling procedure will make your Karnataka higher education journey easier, faster, and more accommodating. The online choice input method merged counselling for all courses, and additional counselling rounds provide applicants with more options for college and course admission.
