Common Entrance Test (CET) is conducted every year by the Karnataka Government for the admission in Engineering and Medical colleges. The first exam was held in 1984.

The CET Cell will conduct the seat selection process for government seats for admissions to first-year Medical, Dental, Engineering, Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Unani, Naturopathy and Yoga and Architecture courses.

The application form-cum-brochures will be supplied through the colleges in which the candidates studied or appeared for the Second-year PU examination. The cost of the application form is Rs 550 (Rs 400 for SC/ST and Category-1 students) and the Demand Draft should be drawn in favour of the "Special Officer, CET Cell, Bangalore", payable at Bangalore.

Candidates who have obtained admission to a particular discipline through the CET Cell in the previous years will not be eligible for selection of a seat in the same discipline in 2005. The State government has also decided not to conduct the test for non-Karnataka candidates. Karnataka candidates residing outside the state (Horanadu and Gadinadu Karnataka) can procure the brochure and application form by Speed Post by sending a self-addressed cloth-lined envelope of 25 cm x 30 cm size along with a Demand Draft for Rs 650 (in favour of "Special Officer, CET Cell, Bangalore", payable at Bangalore).

CET 2008 

As of 2008 CET will be known as KEA - Karnataka Examination Authority. KEA will conduct all exams on behalf of the Education department of Karnataka. 

 The government's share of seats in the CET has been gradually decreasing over the years. It was 85:15 in 1994-95 but is now reduced to 40:60 (medical). Private college managements are expected to petition the education secretariat on not giving up any medical/dental seat to the government for next year's UG admissions. The govt in 2007 had increased the salaries of teaching staff in government medical and dental colleges. Now, the private colleges too must hike the salaries to retain staf. Each college will have to bear an additional burden of Rs 3 crore. 

New guidelines for CET 2007

The Common Entrance Test 2007 seems to be bigger and better than its predecessors.

For one, every single answer sheet will be uploaded on the CET website for students to verify their answer sheets against the key answers.

"It will be completely transparent, where one student will be able to see another's answer sheet as well," minister for higher education D H Shankaramurthy said after releasing the CET 2007 brochure on Wednesday.

This year, students have an added bonanza of 1,500 engineering seats. Polytechnic colleges in Bhadravati, Chikmagalur, Kushalnagar and Hassan with 300 seats each are being upgraded to engineering colleges.

In addition to this, a new engineering college at Ramanagaram with 300 seats will add up to the CET matrix this year. "The existing polytechnic students will continue in the college till their course is completed," Shankaramurthy added.

Biometric identification:

CET 2007 will have biometric identification for each student at every stage of the test. All candidates should compulsorily affix their left hand thumb impression in their CET application form and also on the OMR answer sheets of all subjects. This year, students who have selected seats during the admission round, will not be eligible for seat selection during the casual vacancy round. However, candidates who have (a) not attended or (b) have attended but not selected or (c) cancelled the seat before the commencement of casual vacancy round or during their turn in the casual vacancy round, are eligible for seat selection during the casual vacancy round.

Last year, 10 per cent of engineering seats and 800 dental seats went abegging.

Single test not a priority:

After assuring students of a single CET, the government now seems to be soft-pedalling on the issue. "The single test agenda was not on top of our priority list. We were gunning for a fair seat share and fee structure, which we have achieved. We will continue trying for the single test, but if we fail, I don't mind," the minister said.
