    • Hi

      No you will not be able to fill options during this duration. Only changes in options can be made during this duration. But don’t worry the KPGCET counselling is being held in two rounds. Since you have missed the option entry for Round 1 you may try for Round 2 of counselling. However the dates for Round 2 Counselling have not yet been announced. We will update this article as and when these dates will be announced. Keep checking this article for all updates.

    • Hi

      Since you are opting for “Choice 2”. It means that you are satisfied with the seat allotted to you but you want to participate in the Round 2 of Counselling so that you may get a better college. After selecting “choice 2” in option entry, you are required to do the following-

      1. You are required to pay the prescribed fees just to confirm the seat allotted to you in the first round. For this, you have to download and print the Challan of any Bank as specified on the KEA Website (opt for any nearest Bank). This challan will have your details pre-printed on it. You need to review these details and sign this challan.

      2. Visit that Bank Branch of whose challan you got printed and pay the prescribed fee there. The Bank will return you with 2 receipts, i.e. a “candidate’s copy” and a “college copy”. Retain both these receipts with you and wait for the second round of counselling.

      Please note that the fee paid in the first round will be adjusted for the second round upon selection of a seat, the balance amount if any will be refunded to you. In case you will not be satisfied with the seat allotted to you in the second round of counselling, the allocated seat in the first round will be retained.

      Hope this solves your doubt.

    • Hi Priya,

      The round 2 option entry is expected to commence from September 8 or 9, 2016 after the last document verification ends. The fee that you have already paid will get refunded or transferred to other college depends on the college policies. You will have to check about this from the college itself. Also, kindly note that if you participate in Round 2 of counselling then the already allotted seat will no more be there. So, either you go with the college that you already have or let go the same and participate in Round 2. Decide and act wisely. Hope this will help.
