should a pcmb student who writes kcet to go to engineering write biology in kcet??

Hrisheekesh Singh 8th Apr, 2020

Hi Aqeel,

If you are interested in taking admission in Engineering than why would you be writing biology in the KCET Exam. As you have studied Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, so you have to write only these subjects.

Yes, if you are interested in B.Pharma or B.Sc.(Hons.) then you may write biology there.

sir i got 260 in pcb in karnataka board then how much marks required in kcet below 2500rank

Aman Raj Student Expert 8th Apr, 2020

Rank varies from year to year. It also depends upon the toughness of the paper and total students appearing for the paper. Each year we have seen that there is a massive difference between ranks and marks with the previous years.

But considering a approx figure then you will have to score 145+ in your kcet.
