The engineering students who lost their seats for not heeding the warning by Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) have approached KEA authorities, who have expressed helplessness. The only option left is for the students to appear for the Common Entrance Test (CET) in 2017.
A KEA official told Express, “We cannot change rules now. Even after series of instructions and warnings, students have made the mistake.”
One desperate student said, “I got to know about my seat cancellation only when I got a call from college authorities. When I enquired with KEA they said I have been allotted dental seat. But I made the option entry for fun. When I approached the dental college where I got admission, they said the last date was over.”
The parent of another student said he was an electrician and had managed to save money for his son’s engineering course. “Now he has lost the seat and I am scared he will lose a year. We request the higher education minister to intervene,” he said. Most of those affected were studying in top colleges like BMS College of Engineering, RV College of Engineering, Nitte Meenakshi Institute of Technology and others.
“Seats of two students in our college have been cancelled. We have asked if this can be considered special case as students will lose one precious year. If the government agrees, we will revert it,” Dr K Mallikarjun Babu, principal, BMS College of Engineering.
