Below link shows how to apply for the special round
Hope this helps !!
what is second extend round in kcet. can you please tell the full process
Second extend round mean you can select a seat in round 2 if you don't want to join the clg u got in round 1 or if doesn't get a seat in round 1.
If you hold on to the seat that you are allotted and then wish to wait and participate in the next round I think that's okay, but if you give up the allotted seat and then wait and participate I don't think that's right because you may or may not be allotted a seat in the next round, that's what happened to my son. So think many times before giving up the seat. Then you can change the order of your options for the second round, you may re-arrange it.
Hope it helps
Thank you & Good Luck!!!
