Counselling At Anna University-58000 Seats Vacant

1st Academic Counselling-Anna University
Anna University recently held its first academic counselling. In-spite of increase in number of students opting for engineering, around 58000 seats are left vacant at the end of academic counselling session on Saturday. This time, the number of vacant seats is 14029 more in comparison to last year.


In order to justify the lag, it is said that students are rushing to newer colleges and they prefer government seats than the management quota seats. Educational analyst say that an additional 21 new colleges offered 28.460 seats but the students didn't prefer them.

TN consists of 540 Engineering Colleges across the state. The number of Government seats in Engineering colleges including vocational courses is 1,24,430 and that for engineering is 1,20,712. Its almost 58,029 seats left vacant, said the sources.

The secretary of Tamil Nadu Engineering Admissions (TNEA) Rhymend Uthiaraj said "When more than 28,000 seats were added, vacancies were bound to increase. But the fact that people opting for engineering seats went up by 15,000 means the field is in demand." On having a look at the previous allotments, around1,10,000 seats were occupied out of 1,54,000 seats. He also said that the colleges have given up more than 20,000 management seats to Government. The number of vacant seats is likely to be estimated in a week.

The vocational courses counselling, supplementary exam students and for SC students will begin after academic counselling. "The special last leg of counselling ends on August 22. We expect around 2,500 seats to be allotted during that period, he added.
