Surpassing last year’s record by a margin of around 5,000, a total of 25, 215 applications were received for admissions in various undergraduate courses in six government colleges of the city on Friday.
It is significant to note that it was for the first time that all the government colleges of the city had uniformly adopted the process of online submission of admission forms.
“We received around 15,000-20,000 admissions forms for all the government colleges last year, but this year, the response has been far better,” said UT Director Higher Education (DHE), Sandeep Hans, adding that there were no complaints from students except minor technical glitches in the website on few occasions, which were resolved soon.

While, the online process not only facilitated students from far-flung areas, the colleges also did not face any chaos, or long queues of students and parents waiting to buy admission forms.
“Earlier, students had to buy two prospectuses if they wanted to apply in more than two courses, but this year the online application was free of cost. Students could apply in as many courses as they wanted,” added Hans.
The maximum registrations were received for Post-graduate Government College (Co-ed), Sector11, which is 7,442. Following close was Post-Graduate Government College for Girls (PGGCG), Sector 11, which received 6,306 applications and Post-Graduate Government College for Girls (PGGCG), Sector 42, with 5,819 forms.

Pointing towards a trend of preference among students for basic sciences, majority of applications have been received for BSc (Non-Medical) and BSc (Computer Science). BCA emerged as the favourite choice of students among the professional courses.
Meanwhile, the last date to apply online for admission to various undergraduate courses in government colleges of the city was extended by a day by the UT Education department on Friday.
