## About Karnataka PGCET 2020

The Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) conducts Post Graduate Common Entrance Test (PGCET) to shortlist candidates for MBA, MCA, ME, M.Tech, M.Arch as well as lateral entry MCA courses offered by various government/university/private aided and private unaided institutions of Karnataka.

Karnataka PGECET 2020 exam is schedule to be conducted on October 13 for M.Tech/MArch and on October 14 for MBA/MCA. The online application form of Karnataka PGCET has been reopened from August 14 (2pm) to September 21. Earlier, the application form was available from June 15 (from 4:00 pm) to June 28. Another chance was provided to fill the form between July 4 (5:00 pm) to July 7 (6:30 pm) and could pay the fees on or before July 8.

Karnataka PGCET will be held for 120 minutes in multiple sessions separately for different courses. The answer key will be released by the examination authority. Based on the performance of candidates in Karnataka PGCET 2020, the rank list will be prepared for admission to different courses. Candidates will be called for counselling as per their ranks in the merit list.

GATE qualified candidates will be exempt from appearing for Karnataka PGCET. They can directly apply for M.Tech admissions offered by the participating institutes on the basis of their GATE scores.
