All students who do not belong to Karnataka and wish to join COMED – K member institutions will have to appear for the COMED – K exam. They cannot appear for the KCET and join Government or Government Aided colleges in Karnataka.

However, if you’re a student who belongs to Karnataka, then you can get into COMED – K institutions by appearing for the KCET or the COMED – K UGET. A certain portion of the total seats in COMED – K institutions are reserved for Karnataka domiciles who have appeared for the KCET.

Additionally, Karnataka domiciles can also get into Government and Government aided colleges in Karnataka, but only on the basis of their scores in the KCET.

It is important to keep in mind that students admitted through their COMED – K scores have to pay a much higher tuition fee every year than students who got admissions through KCET.

Students who do not belong to Karnataka do not have a choice with regards to this as they cannot appear for the KCET or apply to Government and Government Aided colleges. Their only option is to appear for the COMED – K and apply to its member institutions in Karnataka.

But for a Karnataka domicile (who can choose to appear for either of the tests), a seat allotted through the KCET will cost much less than a seat allotted through the COMED – K UGET.  Therefore, it is only ideal for Karnataka domiciles to appear for the COMED - K in case they wish to improve their chances of getting a seat by appearing for both the tests and if they do not mind paying the higher tuition fee amount for the same education (in case they’re allotted a seat through COMED – K).

Make your choices/preferences based on two main factors:

The counseling will be conducted in 2 rounds .You will need to reach the specified venue on the day of counseling.

Once you reach the venue, you will need to get your documents verified and get yourself registered for the counseling.

After the counseling begins, you will need to select the course and college you wish to join out of the ones that are available for you at that point of time.
