    I know of three people who have opted out of COMEDK - all of them ranks better than 1700. All of them were pretty sure of RVCE/PESIT/MSRIT. I guess more would be dropping out due to continued delays.

  • Venkat created a new topic 2nd Iteration, Trichy state cutoffs in the forums.
    Here is some useful info for Tamil Nadu open quota candidates - this is not available on CCB site.

    The STATE RANK cutoffs by branch for OPEN QUOTA (HOME STATE) in the 2nd Iteration is as follows:

    Chemical 282
    Civil 329
    Comp Sci 199
    EEE 203
    ECE 132
    Instrumentation 277
    Mechanical 211
    Metallurgy 358
    Production 341

    65 NEW candidates seem to have been called for second iteration counselling in the home state open quota (total number of seats = 185)

  • Venkat replied to the topic Re:DO students do this? in the forums.
    Several of the pvt colleges in Tamil Nadu do not allow sliding for all the vacant seats. They can sell a CS, ECE, Mech seat for a higher price than some of the other branches such as biotech, metal, etc. So, they keep a portion of the vacant seats for mgmt quota. The actual ratio is never disclosed.

    Don't know about VIT specifically, but this seems to be the practice in several similar colleges.

    My guess is that 27th is given as an outer deadline for those who want to take a refund after classes start (19th July?). Please also note that the student has to personally go to get the refund.

  • After more than 60 years since independence, our country is in a state where many of us WANT to be backward. That is how lopsided our votebank driven politics have made out education system. A reserved candidate with a 4.7 lakh rank gets EEE in a leading NIT while many of you who have slogged for 2+ years have been left hanging.

    Some states are worse than others ... have a look at Tamil Nadu ... 79% reservation (Some say it is more in practice)

    Those who have been thru IIMs/ISB/XLRI will tell you that the first degree - be it from IIT, BITS, NITS, DU, etc - does not really matter. An MBA from a good institute resets the undergraduate degree.

  • Venkat replied to the topic Re:r.v vs pesit in the forums.
    With COMEDK counselling getting delayed, some people may not turn up for the counselling. If that happens, cutoffs could fall a little bit. I am told that several people leave RVCE, PSEIT, MSRIT, etc for NITs and other colleges every year, and this causes subsequent internal sliding. If counselling get delayed significantly this year, the fall in cutoffs could be at the cost of internal sliding.

    There is perhaps a silver lining in the postponement of COMEDK counselling!

  • Venkat replied to the topic Re: comedk breaking news in the forums.
    Don't think anybody knows yet. COMEDK dates can be finalized only after CET dates are finalized. Dont think CET dates are fixed yet ... and this is liked to Karnataka Exam Authority's decision making. I've written to COMEDK, but have not yet received an answer.

  • Venkat replied to the topic Re: Preference on admission in the forums.
    OK. I didnt anything limiting the choices to three either.

    It looks like after the fourth round, internal sliding within each institute takes place. It is not clear who will get higher priority - a person already enrolled in the institute in a lower branch with an AIEEE rank of X, or an unalloted candidate with a rank better than X.

    Practically, the internal institute dynamics will have a bearing on who gets priority, I guess. In this regard, the private colleges are likely to differ from the NITs.

    @Usha

    Sorry ... misunderstood your question the first time. Can you tell which section on the AIEEE brochure you are referring to?

    Meanwhile, you can write to Central Counselling Board (ccb@vnit.ac.in) seeking a clarification. They take a couple of days to answer, but do answer. I have received two clarifications from them.

  • Venkat replied to the topic Re: COUNSELING POSTPONED????? in the forums.
    Right.

    The bright side is that you will know the status of AIEEE and BITSAT before you go there. So, fewer people will turn up for COMEDK counselling.

  • Venkat created a new topic COMEDK counselling postponed in the forums.
    The counselling that was to start on 5 July has been postponed. COMEDK site does not have a date, but it seems that it is likely to be 20 July.

    Dont worry. It will shoot up after the first round of counselling. The July 4th seat allocation will be much better. Lots of candidates will drop out between the first and the second round, and you will get much higher preference. Be patient.

    @Aniket

    Don't despair. Tough and easy are relative measures. If you are good in 12th math, you can do well in EEE. If you have interest in EEE, all the better.

    Students sometimes are overwhelmed by some of the technical courses in EEE because they do not understand the fundamentals well enough. If you get your basics and concepts right, you will do well in EEE. Same is the case in some courses in Mech.

    Best way to check is to include it in your choices and see what happens in the indicative seat run.

    Locking only means that you cannot change your preferences after that. You do not lock a seat! You lock only your preference order.
