Indore: Though it always remains the first choice of MBA aspirants, odds are in favour of Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya (DAVV) this year.
While the registrations for MBA courses in DAVV are over, Directorate of Technical Education (DTE), which grants admissions in management institutions in the state through centralised online counselling is yet to finalise the schedule for counselling.
“Just because the DTE delayed the counselling, the talented students of the state were registered for admission in the DAVV,” said AISCET Comp-feeders College chairman Awadhesh Dave.
Admission in MBA colleges is a two-stage process. In the first stage, only those students are granted admissions who took common management admission test (CMAT) conducted by All Indian Council for Technical Education (AICTE).
In the second, stage both CMAT candidates and non-CMAT candidates are allowed to participate the counselling. CMAT-2019 results were announced about four months back but DTE is still to commence the admission process.
According to sources, the DTE will take about one week to finalise the schedule for MBA courses. By that time, common entrance test (CET), which is conducted by DAVV for granting admission in its teaching departments will be over.
The CET is to be held in 25 cities across the country on June 23.
“When registrations will start in colleges, by that time MBA aspirants will confirm their admission in DAVV,” said Gaurav Chadhary, director of Saphaire College.
Admission process starts, registrations till July 2
Online registrations window for centralised online admission counselling for admission in bachelor of engineering courses has started for government and private colleges across the state. The registrations will continue till July 2.
Directorate of Technical Education (DTE), which conducts the centralised online admission counselling, stated that the process will be held in two rounds.
In the first round only those students who had taken JEE Main-2019 will be able to participate. For JEE Main qualifiers, the registrations has started, which will continue till July 2 till 3 pm. Side by side, document verifications will be held.
The choice filling for colleges will be done from June 18 to July 2. The common merit list of participants will be announced on July 3. For seats, which will remain vacant after first round of counselling, the second round will be conducted from July 21-26.
In the second round, both JEE qualifiers and non-JEE qualifiers can participate. Admission to JEE qualifiers will be granted on the basis of their JEE score and non-JEE qualifiers on the basis of qualifying exams.
Meanwhile, the registrations for bachelor of architecture (BArch) are going on. The registrations window will shut on June 24.
UG admissions: Minority colleges are first choice of students
The registration window for first round of centralised online admission counselling for admission in traditional undergraduate courses will shut on Sunday midnight.
This year, according to official sources, relatively lesser number of students participated in the online admission process. The reason is that all the leading colleges of city had obtained minority institute status and students are making a beeline outside their admission windows.
The colleges with minority status enjoy the privilege of giving direct admissions. This is the reason why most students prefer them.
The prominent minority colleges, which are seeing good admissions include Renaissance College of Commerce and Management, Arihant College, Kothari College, AISCET Comp-feeders College, ISBA College, School of Vishisht School of Management, Shri Jain Diwakar College, Alexia College, Indore Mahavidyalaya, Akshay Academy and Indore Institute of Law.
Besides minority institutes, government colleges including Holkar College, Atal Behari Vajpayee College, New Science College, Old GDC and New GDC are top choices of students.
