The explained that it is tough and confusing for the students to fill 35 options of courses and colleges. Hence, the government has decided to cut down the number of options and now the candidates will have the choice to in options after the end of each round of allotment.
In 2016, the department is planning to make the entire admission process online. In the year 2016, filling up the application form and seat allotment were done online. As per the changes, the students will be enabled to confirm their seat and pay the course fee online. They need not go to the college and pay the examination fee.
According to sources, the department is planning to hire an external agency to set up guidance centres. So far, schools have been working as guidance centres and filling up the application forms, however, there have been rumours that some of the schools are influencing the students’ preferences and the managements are filling the names of their schools in the first few preferences.
