Candidates can choose the centre closest to them. The decision has been taken for the convenience of students amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

"The candidates can enter three examination places of their choice in the order of priority," KEA said. Students will be allotted the place based on the priority of the examination and the seat availability in the centre.

Candidates can change or modify the information furnished in the CET 2020 online application as per their eligibility, KEA added. To edit the online application form, candidates will have to log in to the official website of KCET and enter their user ID and password.
Karnataka (CET) 2020 will be held on 30 and 31 July.

The entrance test was earlier scheduled to be held between 22 and 24 April but was postponed due to nationwide COVID-19 lockdown.

Karnataka CET is held for determining the merit for admission to the first year of full-time courses for government share of seats in engineering, technology, B Pharma, 2nd year B Pharma, Pharma-D courses and farm science courses.

According to a report by The New Indian Express, Deputy Chief Minister and Higher Education Minister CN Ashwath Narayan said that KCET 2020 will help students planning for admission into engineering colleges across the state.
