    For example:
    1st Choice – A college
    2nd Choice – B college
    3rd Choice – C college
    4th Choice – D college

    –> In 1st cut-off — C college is selected

    My question is
    – shall we wait for 2nd cut off
    – shall we report to the C college for admission but want to join in A college(3-4{4fbd844699876ad967c5056a7f5594f8d3f0e3647aefdca5291b89ff5c6473f3} difference in cut- off marks)
    – procedure for next.

    Kindly explain me regarding the same

      In my suggestion you should take admission in the allotted college even if it is your lower preference so that you would be considered for the higher preferences as per the second selection list. However, in case you do not take admission at the given college, you would miss the opportunity of being upgraded to a more meritorious college and lose the entire academic year.

      If you take admission against lower options in the first selection process and want to continue in that college, submit an application form to prevent being upgraded during second selection. If you fail to submit the undertaking at the time of admission, you would be upgraded and removed from the first selection college. In such a situation, it would be mandatory for you to take admission in the higher preference college. For more details & help call – 155335.
