Posted by under Blog , Engineering Admissions on May 11, 2018

Did you just give your CET exams and now waiting to get your CET score? Are you worried about which Engineering college you may get into? Do you know everything about the new CAP rounds for engineering admissions? If you have these questions, then we have the answers.

Here are some hard core truths about the new engineering admissions process that you need to pay careful attention to!

  1. Number of students taking engineering CET (MHT-CET) has gone up from 2 lakhs in 2016 to 3.89 lakhs in 2017. Number of seats for engineering in Maharashtra is 1.5 lakhs. Competition to get into engineering colleges has nearly doubled.
  2. Though you may have read reports that a few seats in colleges go vacant each year, this is unlikely to be the case this year. Further, even if seats go vacant, they are from colleges in small towns or villages. There is always high demand for good colleges and colleges based out of cities.
  3. This year, all seats in Government colleges will be filled through the Centralized Admission Process (CAP). For private colleges, 80% seats are filled through CAP and 20% through Institute Level Quota.
  4. Due to the sharp increase in competition, if students do not fill in their option form carefully, they may not be allotted a seat of their choice. To avoid this from happening, students need to adopt a methodical approach to filling the option form. As such, students should, in order follow the steps mentioned below:
    > Identify courses / branches of their interest
    > Identify colleges of their interest
    > Decide whether to give preference to the course or college
    > List down all college-course combinations of their interest in descending order of priority
    > Assess the feasibility of the options listed
    > Finalizing the course-college combinations that they are interested in and which are feasible for their CET merit rank
  5. Finalizing the option form is only half the battle. Students should simultaneously apply to private institutes through the institute level processes to maximize the chance of getting the engineering course and college of their choice.
  6. Lastly, students who think that their CET score may not be good enough to get them into an engineering college of repute and a course of their choice should consider other good options such as BSc(IT).
