This year, 53-degree colleges affiliated to various universities recorded zero admissions. These colleges offered 10,820 seats in UG courses, and no student joined/ confirmed admission in these colleges. Among the universities, Kakatiya University recorded zero admissions in 21-degree colleges affiliated to it.

The performance of most of the government degree colleges is up to the mark with 80%+ admissions.

Some of the top officials of universities pointed out that the shortcomings in the online admission process are also one among the reasons for the less enrollment. This year, the online admission process created chaos particularly to those students who submitted the online application form through MeeSeva centres. Lack of awareness among the students about the online admission process and the incompetent software used by the authorities are some of the main reasons that hurt the enrolment.

Finally, after conducting the special admission drive, a little over two lakh seats remained vacant in the degree colleges across Telangana. Out of 4,03,002 seats available in various undergraduate (UG) courses in 1,041-degree colleges in Telangana, only 2,02,662 students were allotted seats. Satavahana University, which has the third highest intake of 45,471 seats in 113-degree colleges affiliated to it, could only fill 21,886 seats this year.
