After the first round of admissions to law colleges in Maharashtra, around 5,000 law aspirants have confirmed their seats.
The State Common Entrance Test (CET) cell released a provisional merit list on last Monday (12th September), but they later realised that the list did not include 250 minority students of higher merit and then extended the last date of admissions through the first round till 19th September 2016.
Commissioner of CET Cell, Chandrashekhar Oak said that the extension came after the CET Cell released an ‘erroneous’ merit list, earlier this week. But it was later revised on Wednesday. However, the students were granted an extension to compensate for the delay.
Numbers of students who have taken admission so far:
- At least 3,000 students have taken admission to the three-year LLB course
- Another 2,000 students have been granted a seat to the five-year LLB course
Of these 250 students who were left out, a total of 203 students had been left out of the three-year LLB course and 47 students from the five-year LLB course merit lists.
Later, students were informed of the error, and the merit list was cancelled. The new list was released on Wednesday, and the admissions confirmed by students until Tuesday were cancelled. The second round of allotments will be held early next week.
