Meanwhile, the second round of online counselling by the Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) for Common Entrance Test (CET) rank holders was affected by some complaints about option entry. Students who wanted to opt for seats lower than the ones they had chosen in their preference order in the first round were demanding another chance to enter options, having not understood the procedure.
According to the procedure, if a student has chosen 10 options and has been allotted the ninth option, for example, they can re-enter options until the first eight only. Students have time until 8 p.m. on Saturday for option entry.
