The Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) has finally come up with a revised Common Entrance Test (CET) seat counselling calendar for admission to undergraduate professional courses.

As the Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (Comed-K) began counselling for medical courses on Tuesday, the KEA announced that students could start option entry from 11 pm on July 2, 2013. They can enter their options till 11 pm on July 7, 2013.

According to the revised calendar, dummy allotment of seats through the CET will be made on July 8. Actual allotment will be conducted on July 10. Students have been given time to report to colleges till July 15.

Meanwhile, Comed-K began its first round of counselling for medical seats on Tuesday.
There were seven sessions on the first day, including a late-comer session. The counselling was conducted for ranks one to 2,000. At the end of the day, 537 seats were taken. Out of the 2,000 students called for counselling, 561 had turned up.

Out of the 537 seats taken, 313 have been confirmed and 224 were provisional allotments. “Not everyone to be assigned a rank turns up. This is normal attendance,” said a Comed-K official.

Counselling for medical seats will continue on Wednesday. There are 146 medical seats remaining. Engineering counselling will begin on July 5.

Even before the KEA announced its schedule, Comed-K decided to address concerns over refund of money to State students.

Comed-K has decided to refund the entire amount paid during the first round of counselling to students from Karnataka if they surrender their seats. For the students from the rest of the country, Rs 5,000 will be deducted from the fees paid during the first round.

The students were requested to pay the entire first-year fee during the first round of counselling.

 The amount to be paid is Rs 3.57 lakh for medical, Rs 2.53 lakh for dental and Rs 50,000 for engineering seats. The medical seats can be surrendered between July 11 and 13, while the engineering seats can be surrendered between July 13 and 17. Architecture seats can be surrendered on July 22 and 23.

The KEA will host the seat matrix for the CET 2013 for engineering and medical courses on its official website www.kea.kar.nic.in.
