Rank Predictor based on KCET 2019 Answer Key

Once the final answer keys are published, you can check your marks and predict your rank in the KCET 2019 examination. There is no negative marking in the KCET examination and hence, your score will be equal to the number of correct responses given by you in the examination. Each correct answer gives you one mark so your marks obtained are the number of correct answers multiplied by 1.

Previous Year Cutoff for Participating Colleges in KCET 2019

The cut-off marks for KCET are the minimum marks that you need to score to get admission to the various Undergraduate Engineering courses in Karnataka. The KCET cut off marks are determined by the KEA to allot seats to eligible candidates who have obtained marks equal to above the KCET cut-off marks. The cut-off marks are represented by the closing ranks for each participating institute and vary as per the college, course name, and category. The cutoff of KCET is published separately for General and Hyderabad- Karnataka candidates. A number of factors are taken into account by the admission committee to determine the KCET cut-off marks.

Factors considered for determining the KCET Cut-Off Marks

  • The difficulty level of the KCET question paper.
  • The number of applications appearing in the KCET examination.
  • The number of seats available.
  • The performance of the candidates in Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics in both the qualifying examination and the common entrance test.
  • The average marks secured by the candidates in the entrance test.
  • The seats reserved for candidates belonging to different categories
  • The previous year cut-off marks.
