As the admission procedure for engineering colleges has already started, here’s a little something that can help you stay updated!
The abbreviation of CAP is Centralized Admission Process. For those who do not know the basic process for getting into engineering colleges (you probably do by now?)
These admissions take place in “CAP rounds”.
All the students applying for the colleges all over in Maharashtra make a list of their preferences according to the percentages they’ve gotten and the cut-off list declared by the colleges. An allotment list is displayed after every CAP round wherein the students can check if they’ve gotten into the college they desired. If not, they can apply for the next CAP round.
So, I know it sounds pretty simple. But, it gets a little hectic down the road! I hope you have your seat belts on for this one! 😛
Following are some dates you have to stay in check with:-
While the online registrations for everyone would be remote, the submission of the documents for Indian students will take place at the designated centers. J & K Migrant/NRI/PIO/OCI/CIWGC/FN students are required to send the print of online filled & confirmed application form along with the documents by hand/speed post/courier for verification & confirmation to “The Principal , Sardar Patel College of Engineering (SPCE), Versova Road, Munshi Nagar, Andheri (West), Mumbai-400058”
After online registrations, the provisional merit list will be displayed. And if you still haven’t got all the documents, don’t worry! You can use the period of grievance to finish up all the necessary certificates required.
The students have to check the merit list and accordingly decide on the preferences of the colleges, make a list & then submit the forms online.
After the CAP round results are declared, the students get a brief idea about whether they may/may not get admissions in a better college. They can then report at the ARC and either confirm the admission for the college they’ve gotten or put it on “float”. The float option allows one to keep the admission for the college they’ve gotten and also apply for the next CAP. If you’ve gotten the desired college, you can just “freeze” (confirm) the admission! If you are sure you will get an admission in the desired college in the next round, you can “slide” the allotted seat too.
