Admission in Bangalore Engineering Colleges

The first step in seeking Admission in Bangalore Engineering Colleges is to educate yourself on various courses & colleges and draw up a couple of options which seem the best fit for you.

Karnataka Students
Now if you are student from Karnataka, that is if you have studied or passed in one or more Government or Government recognized institutions within the state of Karnataka for a minimum period of 7 academic years commencing from 1st std to 12th Std/ PUC as on 1st July of the year in which the entrance test is held, and you have also passed either 10th/ SSLC or 12th /PUC from Karnataka, then you can write the Common Entrance Test (CET) . This entrance exam is conducted by the government of Karnataka to determine the eligibility or merit of candidates seeking admission into the First Year or First Semester of full time engineering & architecture courses in institutions within Karnataka.

Non-Karnataka Students
If you are a non- Karnataka student, you need to appear for the second parallel entrance test conducted by the Karnataka Private Medical & Dental Colleges Association under the name of Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (COMEDK) which is independent of the Government conducted CET & is used to fill some parts of certain engineering colleges in Karnataka.

A third method is for students to appear for these entrance exams & approach Engineering Colleges in Bangalore for admission via the management quota seats. Seats sanctioned under this quota are subject to the merit of the students & discretion of the management.

Eligibility for CET/COMEDK in Karnataka
Eligibility criteria for Admission in Bangalore Engineering Colleges are a pass in 10+2/ PUC/ HSC & other equivalent examinations with a 45% aggregate in Physics, Mathematics & Chemistry & should have appeared for at least one of the entrance exams above.

Once you have appeared for the entrance tests as outlined above you can follow these steps for admission in Bangalore Engineering colleges:

  • Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) has established 12 helpline centers; you can visit them to get your documents verified. Here are the documents you will need to carry with you:
  • SSLC/10th Marks Card
  • 2nd PUC/12th / HSC equivalent marks card
  • Passing Certificate/ Transfer Certificate
  • Rural Quota Certificate ( if you have claimed under rural quota)
  • Kannada Medium Study Certificate (if you have claimed under Kannada medium quota)
  • Caste/Income Certificate ( for claiming reservation benefits)
  • Post verification, the KEA center will issue 4 documents:
  • Verification slip
  • Unique login credentials for logging into KEA website
  • Instruction Manual & User Handbook ( soft copy also available on
  • Audio Visual DVD
  • Fill in the online priority form with the colleges & streams you wish to apply for in the order of your preference.
  • You can seek the guidance of the helpline center to fill in the form.

Next step of the process is the admissions round. Here you will be allocated seats according to your merit as well as your order of preference. Once all students enter their option, KEA will come up with mock allotment and you can verify the status of your allotment within 2 days. You can also change or modify the options allotted within the stipulated date & time. Then, based on the modified allotment, the real allotment will be executed by KEA.

After the first round there are 3 options open to you:

  • If you are fine with the option allotted, go ahead & join the allotted college by paying the prescribed fees in the hotline center, collect the admission order & report at the college. At this point, you need to note that you will not be eligible for any further counseling rounds.
  • If you are happy with the allotted option but want a different college, you can seek options in the 2nd round. Once a second college gets allotted, the first one gets cancelled automatically, if not, you will still have the first college option in hand.
  • If you aren’t satisfied with the allotted seat, you can surrender it & apply afresh for the next round.

This is repeated for the 2nd & 3rd rounds as well.

Casual Vacancy rounds are when all the vacant reserved seats remaining from the Admission rounds are converted into general category seats and a new list of available seats is made. If you haven’t yet been allotted a college or if want to try your hand at a better college, you can apply in this round.
