Of the 98,000 students, only 47,956 were allotted seats in 3rd round, while there are over 50 thousand students who are yet to get allotted a seat.
Ever since the first round of seat allocation ended, the students were hopeful that the cut-offs in top notch colleges will reduce. The third round list witnessed almost same or slightly higher cut-offs in Arts stream across the colleges. For the 4th round too, it is believed that cut-off in Arts will go high, while the cut-off in Commerce may remain same. For Science stream, the cut-offs are expected to fall a bit. Meanwhile, many top colleges in the region decided to start the academic session without waiting for the 4th list as the seats were full. The Colleges defended their decision with a view that the admission process has already delayed the academic session which should have started by the mid of July.

In the 3rd round, around 31.5% students who were allotted a seat confirmed admissions.

After the fourth round, a fresh schedule will be announced depending on the availability of seats.
