The result of first mock round was declared by the Admission Committee for Professional Courses (ACPC) on Monday, 23rd June, 2012. Mechanical engineering has topped as the branch of choice for highly meritorious students. Of the top 20 students in the merit list for professional engineering and pharmacy courses, 14 have opted for mechanical engineering. Two students have opted for computer engineering, while two have opted for pharmacy. Mechanical engineering has been the branch of choice with the students for the last two years.
This is because this branch is virtually recession free and the job prospects have remained bright even in times of market slump, ACPC member and principal of L.D. Engineering College M.N. Patel said. Of the 20 top rankers in the list, seven have opted for L.D. Engineering College, six for Birla Vishwakarma Mahavidyalaya, Vallabh Vidyanagar, five students in MSU, while two have opted for L.M. College of Pharmacy in Ahmedabad. At the end of first mock round, students have filled choice for 43,893 engineering seats, while 3,821 seats have remained vacant. No student has chosen to consider admission on these seats. Accordingly, students filled choice for 3,744 seats, while 407 seats have remained vacant. The results of the mock round where students made over 28 lakh choices has fuelled fear amongst the academicians that a large number of professional seats may remain vacant. If the result of first mock round has left 4,228 seats vacant, there is a possibility of 10,000-odd seats remaining vacant, ACPC officials said. The least preferred branches have turned out to be electronics and communication, where 1,785 seats have remained vacant, computer engineering (794), IT (453), electrical (319) and civil engineering (91).
