  1. If you compare past data from 2008 to 2010 the majority of students admitted to Engineering faculty has been 1st attempt students. In 2011/2012 academic year 1st timers numbers have reduced to 50% which is 772 slots due to Supreme court ruling. We hope the UGC will rectify this anomaly for the Advanced Level 2012 (Academic year 2012/2013) prospective Engineering students.

  2. I would like to know how did 2011 selection for Medicine and Engineering has been done. Because Engineering faculty 772 from old syllabus and 790 from new syllabus while medical faculty 845 from old syllabus and 460 from new syllabus are selected. Why there is a unfair and unjust selection for new syllabus student for medicine? compare to engineering faculty. How many students are suffering from this problem. Why Why!!!!!!!

  3. How can we check in internet, what is the university we selected. Pls... Tell it
