With mercury soaring, the online registration picked up on Tuesday. The total number of registrations on the second day shot up to 42,000 by 5.30 pm.

Out of them,13,200 have already paid their fees.

While 62,000 physical forms were sold on the first two days, nearly 2,000 more applicants chose to register through the online mode, said the university media coordinator Malay Neerav.

When admission process began, the university website slowed down after many logged in during the day.

Only 17,000 people could log in for online registration for undergraduate courses on Monday. “As many as 30,000 people tried to login at one point in time,” added Neerav.

He said the university has employed four servers to handle the online traffic.

With the website becoming more responsive, the sale of common pre-admission forms at 18 designated colleges staggered. As compared to the day one, the university sold nearly 12,000 less physical forms.

29,000 forms sold

On the second day, 29,693 forms were sold from 18 counters set up by the university in different colleges, while 11,859 filled forms were received at the centres, the university said in a statement.
However, the university claims to have received nearly 25,000 more applicants this year.

Students aspiring to get into the 69 colleges affiliated to the university can submit the centralised optical mark recognition (OMR) forms both online and offline until June 16.
