Taking view of the general trend of students every year,the state education minister Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil announced on Thurdsay that this year colleges will have to fill up vocational seats first and then the seats for science,arts and commerce. Every year,students would usually take admission in the traditional streams first and then cancel their admission after obtaining admission to vocational courses. This would create several vacant seats in the traditional streams in colleges and deprive several other students of getting admission in these courses.

So colleges will first announce admissions to vocational seats. TN Shiware,principal,Hinduja college,Charni Road,said,“Earlier,there would be problems because several seats would remain vacant. But the new rule of filling up vocational seats first will help both students and colleges.”

Also,admission to minority colleges or to management quota in colleges will not be done by the online admission process. Those students will need to go to colleges themselves. However,students who wish to take admission in a minority college are advised to also fill up the online form.   

To avail the online admission procedure,students will have to first visit a website (to be announced by the education department later) and then fill up the admission form. The form will have four choices (science,arts,commerce and vocational). Students can fill upto 150 preferred college codes in the form. After filling up other details,the form will have to be submitted to any college nearest to the student’s residence.
