Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 5th Apr, 2020

Unfortunately you cannot do any corrections now in your KCET application form. Eventhough the examination for kcet has been extended and do new sate has been announced due to COVID-19 situation.KCET provided correction  facility on its website from March 19 to March 27, 2020.
I would suggest you to send an email to the authorities and hopefully  they will help you(although its highly unlikely).

I hope this helps.
