This time, COMEDK, which conducts entrance test for private engineering colleges in the state, has received 5,758 more applications compared to last year.

Candidates clearing the test will be eligible to get seats in 190 private engineering colleges which collectively have 20,000 engineering seats. According to COMEDK authorities, quality of colleges has triggered the rise in number of applications. Interestingly, several seats for engineering courses were left vacant at different colleges last year.
