The verified students will be included in the daily merit list and it will be declared at 10 am. Between 10 am to 5 pm, the students can visit the colleges for admissions and the college then has to update the admission details between 5 pm to 6 pm. The process will be repeated daily until every student is admitted,” said Meena Shendkar, assistant director of education, Pune.

“It is a provision to have the admission based on merit according to the government resolution. The allotment of the students will be based on merit. If their merit matches the cut-off and vacancies in their preferred colleges, the allotment will be made. Once, the admissions are done the student is removed from the system. If the admission is not done, the student is expected to lock his or her details again for the daily merit process,” added Shendkar.
Shendkar said that the students should make use of the option called know your eligibility to better understand their merit standings. “Students are stressed during admissions and this option helps them to check their merit standing and choose the college best suited for their allotment,” she added.
