Posted By:

Confusion arises among medical aspirants in Karnataka as medical colleges seat allotment through KCET opens while CBSE has not released the seat matrix list through NEET yet.

KCET is the Karnataka Common Entrance Test, an entrance exam for both engineering and medical aspirants across the state of Karnataka.

NEET Aspirants Again Troubled as KCET Seat Alloted

How does KCET work?

After the KEA declares KCET results, students are given seat allotment in both engineering and medical colleges. Based on their choice of colleges, each student decides their preference and blocks the seat in the college and course of their desire. They can choose only one seat in one college - either engineering seat or medical seat.

What is the KCET and NEET issue?

  • Karnataka now has two entrance exams for medical college admissions - KCET and NEET
  • Eventhough the NEET results were announced in mid June, the seat allotment for candidates has not been released
  • Meanwhile, the seat allotment for candidates in medical colleges through KCET has been released
  • This means, students who had appeared for the KCET get the first preference in choosing their desired colleges for MBBS. On the other hand NEET candidates are on the wait, uncertain about their college list. Since KCET candidates get the priority in blocking seats, the NEET aspirants will be left with little choice for their colleges' selection

Around 11,450 candidates have been offered seats in medical colleges in Karnataka after the KCET first round results.
