COMEDK stands for Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental colleges of Karnataka and is a state level Entrance test floated by the Associations of Medical, Dental and Engineering private colleges for admissions to the Member Institutions. Post Results, first round of Counselling process is held as per the COMEDK counselling schedule.
The counselling procedure is based on the ranks obtained in the exam. ComedK is an exam which is not only attempted by students in Karnataka, but also by people from all over the nation. It may not be as popular as the JEE but the level of competition cannot be ignored.
On closely observing the trend in recent years, one can see that each mark makes a difference of 50 or more ranks. So, it is definitely no piece of cake.
However, don’t fear just yet. This exam is also usually a backup exam taken up by candidates. It is seen that a lot of the top rankers either prefer to get into the colleges through CET or have secured admission into colleges like IITs, NITs and BITS. In many cases, candidates just want to stay in their home towns and not endure the torment of hostel life.
Regardless of the reason, this is good news for all you frustrated engineers and doctors who just missed the seat into your dream (or close enough) colleges. Don’t despair just yet. It is a general observation that the cut off ranks drop by up to and in many cases, over 500 ranks. There’s a good chance that you may get a huge upgrade. The trend of cut off ranks is very unpredictable.
So don’t wash that pair of jeans just yet. The agony of sitting through another round of counselling is definitely worth it. After all, you all know the importance of what college you get in to.
All the best!
