Faridabad's Samarth Kapoor and Kanpur's Pulkit Kapoor, with 556 marks out of 600, topped in B.Tech entrance. Vishwajeet Shukla of Gorakhpur is third in the list with 552.08 marks.

Interestingly, most of the students who've qualified in the UP State Entrance Examination (UPSEE) will get admission in the B Tech courses because the number of B Tech seats are more than the number of qualified candidates.

This year, 1,40,156 students have qualified for the 1,41,000 B Tech seats available. Last year, 40,000 seats were left unoccupied as there were no takers. It is the same story in MBA too: There are only 8,726 qualified candidates for 40,000 MBA seats.

Despite this embarrassing situation, UPTU vice-chancellor Omkar Singh put up a brave face and has assured that the university is taking concrete steps to improve the situation from next year. “We are taking few measures that will ensure that number of applicants will increase,” he said.

He added that counseling schedules will be announced soon, and the process will likely start from June 15. As per state government directives, it will be completed before July 30 so that regular classes could start from August 1.

The university administration was of the view that timely completion of admission work will help them to attract more quality students. Because of the delayed start, the authorities say that many bright students are compelled to seek admission in other states like Rajasthan where the fees is comparatively lesser.
