No takers for MBA & MCA courses
The students are not happy in pursuing MBA and MCA courses in 32 colleges of Gujarat.

Around 289 colleges are in the state, where not even a single student took admission in 32 colleges.

According to the Admission Committee for Professional Courses (ACPC) sources, 20,810 are seats available for admissions.

Only 7,153 have been filled and 13,657 seats are empty.

"This means that only 41% of the total available seats have been filled," said an ACPC source.

In all 79 colleges, only 10 students taken admission, while in remaining 91 colleges only 20 seats filled.

Recently, ACPC completed the second round of admission in MBA and MCA courses.

In MBA courses, of the total 124 colleges, 30 colleges have filled up their seats; while in MCA of the total 84 colleges, for semester I, only 16 colleges can boast of 100 per cent seat occupancy.

For third semester of MCA, of the 81 colleges, 47 have all seats filled.

"Here the situation is a little better because of a rule introduced by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) which says that students who have completed BSc in maths or statistics or BCA can get admission in the third semester of MCA directly," said a state education department official.

UV Shah, the official on special duty of ACPC, said: "In all, 4,050 seats have been filled in the MBA stream, 1,261 in MCA semester 1, and 1,842 seats in MCA semester 3. The vacant seats in MBA courses are 6,587; in MCA semester I, the number is 4,923; and in MCA III, it is 2,147."
