Karnataka govt to merge KCET, COMEDK tests into single entrance exam

Beginning in the year 2023, students applying to undergraduate programmes in the state of Karnataka will not be required to take the COMEDK entrance exam. The state government of Karnataka has taken a significant step forward by deciding to merge the entrance examinations that are administered by the Karnataka Consortium of Colleges of Medicine, Engineering and Dentistry (COMEDK) with the KCET or Karnataka CET state-level entrance examination, which will now be administered at the national level. This is an important development.

Wednesday’s meeting between CN Higher Education Minister Ashwath Narayan and officials of KUPECA resulted in the conclusion being reached at that time (Karnataka Private Unaided Engineering Colleges Association).

The students’ placement on the standardised exam is going to be the determining factor for whether or not they are eligible for admission to the professional courses offered by UG, and the shared seat is going to be maintained in accordance with the norms that are already in place.

Narayan said that the next line of action would be to figure out the modalities necessary to unite COMEDK with CET.

In addition, for the academic year 2022–2023, the state government has decided to cap the price rise at private engineering schools to ten percent, rather than the twenty-five percent that was originally requested by the institutions.

During the meeting, it was also decided not to impose any more fees, with the exception of an increase of the already-existing cost by 10%. Students who have been given government employment at private engineering institutions are subject to the increased tuition fees.
