Good news for those who cleared the plus-two examinations, the results for which were out on Tuesday.
There will be marginal increase in the number of seats for various undergraduate programmes available under the Centralised Allotment Process (CAP) of the Mahatma Gandhi University.
With the university giving its green signal for a few new courses, the intake capacity for the undergraduate courses is likely to go up from the existing 21,000 seats. A senior university official told The Hindu that the actual increase in the seats under CAP would be clear in two days.
In government colleges, all the seats will be filled through CAP. Seventy per cent of the seats in aided colleges and 50 per cent in unaided colleges will also be available under the single window system.
The community merit quota and management quota seats will be filled by the managements concerned, according to the existing rules. The admissions under cultural or sports quota for outstanding students are also decided by the respective colleges.
Under CAP, even students applying for multiple courses and colleges need to submit just one application. The admission process can be tracked online. Marks at the Plus-Two level will decide the weightage for the admissions to the degree programmes.
The existing course-wise break-up of seats for some of the undergraduate programmes are as follows: B. Com – 6,278; B.A. Economics – 1,941; B.A. English – 2,102; B.Sc. Zoology – 999; B.Sc. Botany – 975; BBA – 497; B.Sc. Chemistry – 1,354; BCA – 545; B.A Politics – 180; B.Sc Physics – 1,348; B.Sc. Maths – 1,574.
CAP was introduced for undergraduate programmes in Mahatma Gandhi University in the academic year 2011-12.
