This year, 7,500 applications were received for MBA and MCA courses. The examination, which was postponed from 4th July, 2010 to accommodate students studying in several universities where final year examinations were on, was held in 18 centres across the State. Five of these were in Bangalore.
M. Prakash, secretary of the Karnataka Private Post Graduate Colleges’ Association, said that the absentee rate was less than 10 per cent today.
Last year, about 8,500 students appeared for the KMAT 2009 test and around 4,000 candidates were admitted to various colleges on the basis of the KMAT Score ranking.
This year 7,000 seats are available in the management quota for MBA and about 3,000 seats in MCA.
