Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Here is good news for students who thought they had lost one year of their career as they did not get admission in college and the admission window got closed.
Department of Higher Education (DHE) has decided to provide one more chance to students to secure admission in traditional undergraduate and post-graduate courses.
Information about this was given by higher education minister Mohan Yadav himself in a video message.
“We are going to grant one more round of counselling for students who could not get admission in colleges so far. The counselling will be done from October 21 to October 30. DHE will first register students for counselling and then they will be able to take admission in colleges of their choice,” he said.
The minister stated that nearly 6.31 lakh students had already taken admission in colleges. “Yet, there was a demand by students who could not get a seat in previous counselling to provide another opportunity to them. We have accepted their request,” he added.
This year, a total of three rounds of counselling were done for admission in UG and PG courses. The first two rounds were online admission rounds and the third round was college-level counselling (CLC).
Initially, the late date for admission was September 30. The DHE had granted a fourth round of counselling for those who did not get admission in three rounds.
This additional round’s deadline was October 10 which was extended to October 14.
Now, DHE has granted a second additional round of counselling.
