By Ojas Singh
Lucknow: National Testing Authority (NTA) is expected to release the fresh merit list of (Uttar Pradesh Common Entrance Test) UPCET 2021 by the end of this week.
The AKTU had stopped the counseling after discrepancies were found in the merit list declared by NTA earlier. A number of candidates in engineering as well as pharmacy courses had the same ranks despite having different scores.
An official from AKTU visited New Delhi to attend an NTA meeting called to decide the fate of over 20,000 students who were disturbed after the counseling came to a halt.
Several students had taken admission into some private engineering colleges and at Lucknow University (LU). “Around four to five rounds of the meeting were held in New Delhi with AKTU and NTA officials to take the final call on UPCET counselling and merit list. A fresh list is expected to be released shortly,” said AKTU spokesperson Asheesh Mishra.
AKTU administration has assured the candidates via official statement that candidates need not worry as the fresh merit list is expected to be announced by the end of this week. Admissions which are found to be valid will be continued while the rest found invalid would be cancelled.
UPCET is a state-level entrance examination for admission to engineering, pharmacy and other professional courses at several colleges affiliated to Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University (AKTU) and 13 other state universities in the Uttar Pradesh.
