Common CET to fill MBA & MCA seats in Karnataka

Single CET for MBA & MCA seats in Karnataka


The Karnataka State government and Management colleges association have come up with an idea to conduct single Common Entrance Test (CET) for admission to MBA and MCA courses in colleges of Karnataka.

Earlier, the State had two entrance tests, CMAT and KMAT.

In 2013, the state government had agreed to accept the CMAT scores for admission to MBA and MCA courses in the government colleges.

This year, the Karnataka state government has not agreed to accept CMAT scores for their state quota seats.

Management colleges conducted the KMAT test to fill the management quota seats.

Now, they plan to conduct Common Entrance Test (CET) to fill the MBA and MCA seats.

The government seats would be filled through the centralised counselling conducted by the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU).

The management seats would be filled by management colleges through PGCET scores.

Vacant government seats will fall under management quota and these seats will be filled through KMAT.

The PGCET entrance examination is likely to be conducted on 02nd or 08th June 2014.

KMAT entrance examination would be conducted on 01st September 2014.

Earlier, AICTE had made the CMAT entrance examination mandatory for the MBA and MCA seats.

But not many applied for the exam and around 60% of seats had fallen vacant.

There are around 200 colleges offering these courses, out of which are 22 are managed by the government. Around 25,000 seats are up for grabs. Half of them fall under government quota. There are around 12,000 MCA seats in the country. Around 18,000 students appear for PGCET every year.
