On day one of the admissions process to commerce colleges, over 90,000 forms were distributed. The most sought after colleges drew frenzied rush for forms. Admissions to 50 commerce colleges began on Wednesday, 20th June, 2012 and the Gujarat University authorities have made it clear that the admission forms were to be accepted from Thursday, 21st June, 2012. However, on Wednesday, 20th June, 2012 it was observed that many colleges were accepting completed forms and violating the Gujarat University guidelines. Officials said that they had received complaints and the matter would be taken up with the colleges at the next meeting.
Pro-vice-chancellor Mukul Shah said that the colleges have been given 1.65 lakh forms for distribution among students. He said that everybody would be accommodated despite the daunting numbers. He said a student can collect a form from any college and submit it to the college of his or her choice. Shah further said that the Gujarat University has also made it clear to the college authorities that the university will accept enrollment forms of only those students whose names figure in the merit list. If any student who does not figure in the merit list is given admission, the university will not accept the enrollment form. Shah said that the colleges have been instructed to do away with the management quota and with the practice of recommending candidates. A college official said that in the past meritorious students were left out as the Gujarat University authorities would send their recommendations for admission to the most sought after colleges. Akash Patel, a student, said that he had collected forms from five colleges as he did not want to take any chances. There is a rush in English medium Colleges and hence I have decided to apply in different colleges. The rush of students seeking admission in the morning colleges was higher than in afternoon colleges. Ashwin Purohit, principal of S. M. Patel Commerce College, says: The college sold around 6,000 forms. Initially, all students want admission in the most sought after colleges and hence there is a rush at these colleges. Similarly Pragnesh Shastri, a trustee of Som Lalit Institute, says that the exact cut-off can only be estimated once the procedure of accepting filled up forms is completed. He said that the Som Lalit Institute also sold over 6,000 forms on day one. An afternoon college like HL sold 2,500 forms.Deluge at top schools: As expected, a mad rush was seen in the most sought after colleges. University authorities said that last year after the admissions got over, 2,500 seats lay vacant. The Authorities said the numbers represented the pressure on only 10 colleges. A student will be eligible for admission only if he or she has filled up the form, an official said. No forms will be accepted after Friday, 22nd June, 2012 the last day for accepting the forms by the colleges.
