New Delhi: Karnataka engineering entrance exam (COMEDK 2020) is scheduled to be conducted on August 19. The Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (COMEDK) which conducts the exam has released the admit card.
Every year, the exam is held for students to take admission to undergraduate courses in around 190 engineering colleges.
“For the current academic year 2020-21, COMEDK would conduct an online examination all over India on Saturday, the 19th August 2020, across 300 centers for Engineering programs which offer around 20000 seats and will be followed by online counselling,” it has notified.
According to the reports, a plea challenging the COMEDK’s decision to hold the exam on August 19 has been filed in the Karnataka High Court.
The plea is seeking to quash the notification issued by COMEDK on July 24. As the plea says, as cited in reports, that there is no urgency in holding the exam as national testing agency (NTA) has also delayed engineering and medical entrance exams and will conduct them in the month of September.
Less than 1 lakh candidates are likely to take the exam.
