Dear student, The B.Ed wait list at Regional Institute of Education Ajmer is drafted to fill the vacant seats. The vacant seats are left behind by the students who appeared in the provisionally selected candidates list but did not complete the admission process. Since your rank is 4th in the Regional Institute of Education Ajmer wait list for BEd, there is a slight chance that you will be selected.
