    karnataka pgcet-2011 counselling is over like a drama played by KEA & karnataka students. They showed their local feeling at counselling center.
    Actually what they mentioned in the brochure is first seats are filled by GATE students according to GATE score and remaining seats after filled by GATE candidates are for PGCET rank holders. In that pgcet candidates 90% are for karnataka and 10% for non-karanataka.

    But what they did is, in that GATE also 90% are for karnataka and 10% for non-karnataka. It means one seat in one discipline for GATE non-karnataka. Previous years they allotted seats according to AICTE rules. But they cheated in this year counselling.

    I am form Hyderabad,Andhra Pradesh. According to GATE merit my rank was 44. I hope that surely I’ll get in top 3 colleges in VLSI. But I don’t have chance to get seat in any discipline in top 5-8 colleges in bangalore. One of my neighbour got 8th rank in GATE merit. Before 8th rank only 2 students are ready to take VLSI in RVEC. He fixed that he got seat in RVEC in VLSI. But he got in Digital Communication in RVEC. He is not at all interested in Communications. But he didn’t get VLSI in RVEC and PESIT(these are 2 colleges with VLSI in top rankings, next top colleges till 8 don’t have VLSI).
    This is KARNATAKA PGCET-2011 counselling.

    Finally I didn’t take any seat in karnataka. Now I am waiting for counselling in AP. I hope Ill get in OSMANIA university.

    Thanks to

  47. Pat


    There are two things particular to the exam that non karnataka students will be eligible to select seats surrendered by the management & exam is conducted by KEA not VTU, as it has bad name in conducting & allotment of seats in previous year PGCET..

  48. Mukesh

    I would like to take part time M Tech admission, but the eligibility criteria is saying…

    The candidate after obtaining degree, must have worked for not less than three years before the issue of notification of the relevant year,

    But I am 2009 BE(ECE) passout and now currently working in MNC from past 1.4 years.

    My Question: Do I am eligible to take part time M Tech admission?

    Kindly assist on this

  49. Pavan Kumar

    Hi sir,
    there is a mistake. this time the admissions in karnataka to VTU is done by Karnataka Examinations Authority and not VTU

  50. Nisarg

    Couldn’t exactly see which colleges accept and need PGCET Karnataka ?
    Does “College of Engineering, Guindy” (Under Anna University) comes under this ?
