For medical courses, candidates can make a payment via Demand Draft for the required fee to KEA from 10 a.m. on November 7 until 2 p.m. on November 8. The option to enter preferences will only be available after the DD submission. The option entry period ends at 9 a.m. on November 9, and the results will be disclosed after 4 p.m. on the same day.
