It was assumed that in the first ever first come first served online admissions, these admission will be for the seats in the less famous colleges of the Pune as most of the seats in top colleges would be filled by then but, according to the list released by the Centralized Admission Committee it seems that students who waited till now to confirm their admissions are in luck as there are still 25000 odd seats are available in the top colleges of the Pune.
For example, in the Laxmanrao Apte Prashala college, which is the college with the highest cut-off marks has 29 vacant seats and Fergusson College has 46 seats which are waiting for the admissions.
Similarly, seats are available in many of the city's top colleges such as:
- Symbiosis (8)
- Sir Parshurambhau Jr College (68)
- S M Choksey (24)
- BMCC (3)
When asked about such large number of vacant seats, officials said that it is probably because high-scoring students cancel their admissions even after receiving the admissions in the first college of their choice.
“If students have taken admission in diploma or any other course, they have the option to cancel the admission till the last round, which could be the reason for the vacant seats. In this round, students, who did not get allotment till the last round, did not confirm their admissions or cancelled or rejected admissions are eligible,” said Meenakshi Raut, assistant director of education, Pune.
