About 75,000 students stay away from Engg., Pharmacy Courses’ Registrations

Over one lakh seats are sure to remain vacant in engineering and pharmacy courses this year in the convenor quota itself. This gets reflected in the difference between the available seats and registration of candidates for admissions that ended on 6th September, 2012.

By evening 1, 34,747 candidates registered for both engineering and pharmacy courses across the 59 helpline centres for the 2,34,540 seats available in the convenor quota in 672 engineering colleges and 264 pharmacy colleges.

The remaining colleges are in the minority window, where admissions will be done separately. Only 2.07 lakh candidates have qualified in the engineering stream of EAMCET this year.

The gap indicates the likely vacancies in the Convenor quota and this will increase as several candidates will stay away if they don’t get the desired college or course even after the seat is allotted. For another 1.20 lakh seats in the management quota, less than 50 per cent of these seats are expected to be filled.

“There will be few takers for management quota seats as the government doesn’t reimburse fee for those admissions. Those willing to pay will prefer the top 30 – 40 colleges only,” an official said. So far, 95,000 candidates have exercised their options.
