CET counselling for supplementary students
By Sangeetha B K, DH News Service, Bangalore:
For the first time ever, II PUC students who had appeared for supplementary examination and Common Entrance Test (CET) now have the opportunity to pursue their career in engineering without losing a year.



A case in point is Nishita Swaroop, a student who was unable to write II PU examination, but  passed with first class in the supplementary examination.

She is happy that she will not have a year’s break but will be able to continue with her career as a BE graduate.

“I want to do BE computer science.  I had to take up the supplementary examination as I was unwell to write the first attempt examination. I’m happy that I will be able to pursue my career without any break” said Nishita.

Talking about the CET counselling for II PUC students who have passed through supplementary examination, the newly appointed, Administrative Officer, Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) SP Kulkarni said that counselling for these candidates is beneficial. The KEA had to change the format to conduct CET counselling for these candidates and has extended the schedule by two days.

Bonanza

“The unfilled seats have proven to be a bonanza and will provide students with opportunities to pursue their career in engineering. Now students with 61,000 CET eligible ranking can opt for engineering courses from some of the best institutions” pointed out Kulkarni.

He further explained, “The students who have passed the supplementary exams have an aggregate of 50 to 70 percent in II PU. The general concept of supplementary candidates being poor in academics is dismissed with this trend of students with good aggregate appearing for CET counselling process. Students need not have to wait for a year to begin their career”.

Unfilled Seats

As many as 2,100 seats belonging to the reserved categories remained unfilled and about 500 seats from Consortium Of Medical, Engineering and Dental colleges -Karnataka (COMEDK) have been surrendered to KEA.

However, the seats from COMEDK colleges will not be entitled for subsidy and students will have to pay fee as prescribed by the COMEDK.

“The KEA is playing the role of ensuring that eligible candidates can avail the seats which have been unfilled by COMEDK. However the fee remains the same for these COMEDK colleges. This move is another cooperation from private colleges management and is in favour of students’’ added Kulkarni.
