Choice Filling & Locking under KCET Counselling

In this stage of KCET 2022 counselling, candidates must log in to their account using the User ID and Password provided to them at the time of Document Verification. After logging in, the candidates will be able to see the seat matrix, i.e. the branch-wise and category-wise availability of seats in various colleges. Candidates will have to fill up their choices and lock them before the last date of the KCET 2022 choice filling and locking process.

Candidates must thoroughly check the previous year’s KCET counselling and admission process trends before filling up their choices and locking them. Instead of randomly filling the choices, they should check the previous year’s KCET cut-off, close ranks for the colleges they are interested in, and fill the choices accordingly.

KCET 2022 Seat Allotment

KEA first conducts a round of mock seat allotment. This is done to get the candidates acquainted with the KCET 2022 counselling process. Candidates will be given a chance to modify their choices after the mock seat allotment is over. After that, the final allotment of seats will be conducted. This is based entirely on the rank of the candidates, their preferences, and the availability of seats. The authorities will give an allotment letter to the candidates.

Reporting To The Allotted College

The last stage of the KCET 2022 counselling process involves visiting the allotted college with all the necessary documents and the allotment letter. Candidates also need to pay the fee at the college to confirm the allotment and secure admission. To stay updated, candidates must keep an eye on the KEA official site throughout the admission process.
