Dr Abdul Kalam Technical University (AKTU) has announced dates of counselling session for undergraduate admission in over 900 colleges across Uttar Pradesh.
After conducting the Uttar Pradesh State Entrance Examination (UPSEE), the university administration will be organising the counselling sessions in five rounds for over one lakh applicants.
A total of 841 colleges are associated with the university across UP and around 168 colleges are located in Greater Noida and Ghaziabad.
In a meeting between university vice-chancellor Vinay Pathak and the admission committee last week, it was decided that the first counselling session will start on May 25.
“The counselling will be held in five rounds, starting May 25. The first round of counselling will end on June 14 and after that second round will begin from June 16 and will continue till June 24. Similarly, third session will begin on June 27 and continue till July 5 and fourth will begin from July 7 and continue till July 15. The fifth round will begin from July 17 and continue till July 21,” said Dr Vinay Pathak, VC, AKTU.
The vice-chancellor also said after the five sessions, spot counselling will done for applicants if seats are still vacant.
A few years ago, AKTU had cancelled the direct admission policy of affiliated colleges under which colleges can conduct admissions without an entrance test or counselling sessions.
In the past two years, the number of applicants appearing for UPSEE has decreased owing to which the university administration had recently decided to include applicants who have appeared in other entrance tests as well. The university administration has decided to introduce changes in the admission guidelines for associate colleges and give a window to applicants eligible under other entrance tests as well.
“Any candidate who has appeared in the joint entrance examination (JEE), or any other national level equivalent entrance test, can also appear for counselling. Also, candidates who have scored more than 60% in their Class 12 can also appear,” Pathak said.
Students appearing for counselling have to carry their class 10 and 12 marksheets, domicile certificate, caste certificate (in case he/she belongs to OBC, SC/ST category) as well as transfer certificate.
