More transparency in seat selection through CET this year.
Article Posted: 04-13-2008

The Common Entrance Test (CET) is less than a week away. On April 19, the fate of thousands of students will be decided as their CET performance determines which colleges they get into and which courses they secure a seat in.

The Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA), which conducts the CET, has highlighted a few aspects that are new this year.

KEA will publish on its website details of candidates who have selected seats under reserved category in medical, dental, Indian systems of medicine and homoeopathy, engineering and architecture courses, such as candidates' name, father's name, category under which seat selected, annual income of the parent, etc., after the casual vacancy round.

Candidates who claim a seat under the rural category will have to obtain a rural study certificate from the respective school/high school issued by the head of the institution which should be countersigned by the block education officer (BEO) concerned as per the required format.

General merit candidates who claim seats in rural category should also submit an income certificate issued from the tahsildar concerned along with the rural study certificate as per the required format.

Candidates who have studied in certain areas (mentioned in the CET brochure) are not eligible to claim rural category seats. But if the place where the candidate has studied from class I to X was declared a rural area at the time of his/her studies, he/ she will be eligible under rural quota, even though the place was declared an urban area later.

The NCC and Sports Special category candidates have to obtain a certificate from the head of the institution where they have studied from class VIII to XII, for having participated in the NCC/sports events and should compulsorily produce the same along with their NCC/sports certificates to the KEA office on the notified dates. Otherwise, they will not be eligible for selection of seats under the respective special categories.
