Bangalore, Sep 10: Starting from next academic year, Mangalore and Davangere too will also see Common Entrance Test (CET) counselling for admissions into professional courses.
This decision was taken as the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) decided to go ahead with decentralisation of the CET, after counselling at Hubli and Gulbarga gave encouraging results last year.
Higher Education Minister Aravind Limbavali has given the formal approval for holding counselling at these two places and KEA will soon start working on setting up of these centres.
Henceforth, the counselling will be held at five centres including Bangalore, Hubli, Gulbarga, Davanagere and Mangalore.
KEA took the decision to decentralise the counselling for the benefit of the students who are not from Bangalore.
