Gujarat University Facing Vacancy Of 24,713 Seats

24713 Seats Vacant In Gujarat University
It was not many years ago that students made a beeline for engineering colleges, migrated to other states in order to study Pharmacy or pursue courses in Business administration. But as the administration process for professional and other courses nears completion, not only engineering and pharmacy colleges, but even commerce colleges are struggling to get enough students.


Moreover it is for the first time in its over all 60 years of experience, the state's largest seat of learning is facing a crisis without thousands of seats going vacant in Gujarat University. Never before, several commerce seats are lying vacant. The situation is no different for courses like bachelor of business administration and bachelor of computer application in this university and its affiliated colleges.

There are no takers for around 9,833 seats in Engineering colleges and either for 3,342 seats in Pharmacy . The administration Committee for Professional Courses admits students to around 43,000 engineering seats every academic year.

At the end of the third round of admission process in Engineering, around 3,424 EC seats, as the highest in any other engineering branch was going vacant. Other branches like Computer Science and Engineering had 2,302 seats, 1,045 seats in Information Technology were going vacant.

According to the experts- there's one common reason for the current scenario the demand-supply gap created by mushrooming for engineering, pharmacy, MBA and MCA.

Later the solution came in the form of permission to conduct more rounds of admission. However, colleges would have to adhere to the cut-off percentages decided. While the admission process is finally over, the varsity doesn't have fresh data yet.

In the desperate move to fill up vacant seats in BBA, the Gujarat University decided to admit students who cleared class 12 in the second attempt, in supplementary exam. The eligibility criterion decided by the varsity was to stick to 45% in the supplementary exam conducted in 2012.
