Technical glitches, power cut delay BU PG counselling

Technical glitches, power cut delay BU PG counselling

229 students select courses from 28 streams of science faculty

On day one, 229 candidates selected courses from the Science faculty. Eligible candidates from rank 1 to 25 were allowed to select seats from 28 post graduate courses. At Jnana Jyothi Auditorium, four huge screens were put up which displayed the number of seats and courses available in the various affiliated colleges.

The first ever common counselling did face many problems delaying the process by a few hours even as the seat selection process commenced.  On the technical problems faced on day one, Dr N Prabhudev, Vice Chancellor, BU said, “The power cut in the morning as the seat selection process began had delayed the process. For more than an hour the staff with the teams were tackling the power shortage and technical problems. Once the power was back, the counselling process resumed to normalcy”.

The Vice Chancellor also pointed out, “The centralised counselling is beneficial for students and is purely on the basis of merit and seat availability. Students are given the opportunity to select courses and colleges of their choice under one roof”.

The varsity has received more applications for Science courses, when compared to other disciplines. Of 7,100 applications received, 3,285 are for Science alone.  There are 2,618 applications for Arts, while the remaining applications are of Law and Education courses.
On September 20 , counselling will be held from ranks 26 to 40 in morning session while counselling for rank 41 to 60 will be held in the afternoon session.

The centralised counselling for post graduate courses in BU is scheduled as follows:

* Science :September 19 to 23,

* Arts: September 24 to 26

* Commerce: September 29
