Online system of seat counselling for CET introduced by Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) for the first time in the state has made candidates, especially those from rural areas anxious.

The students are spending money on cyber centres to enter their options but the failure in connectivity is creating hassles.

Though KEA has recommended Internet Explorer 8 or above/Mozilla Firefox 10 or above/Google Chrome for the process, most of the students are unaware about the same.

KEA has also suggested a screen resolution of 1024 X 768 or higher to view the web. The version doesn’t matter if the server is well equipped, said an owner of a cyber centre in Gajendragad.

Basavaraj GM, a candidate, said that helpline numbers given by KEA are always busy and there are no replies to queries sent by e-mail. The students cannot disclose the CET number and password.

KEA officials said that their designated counselling centres are always open to assist candidates.
