B.Pharm course records only 43% admissions

Nagpur News.

The admissions to Bachelor of Pharmacy (B.Pharm) course recorded a very low percentage this year even after conclusion of the final counselling round. The admissions for this course were conducted by the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE).

In the first Centralised Admissions Process (CAP), around 38.52 percent seats were taken. However, in the final counseling round, the B.Pharm course could gather only 43 percent admissions.

With half of the seats remaining vacant, the pharmacy colleges in the region are facing tough times. There are 15 Pharmacy colleges in Nagpur Region with total intake of 755 seats. But these colleges together could find only 329 seats taken.

After the counseling round, a total 426 seats were taken against 755 seats.  Those colleges who got decent occupancy included Department of Pharmaceutical, RTMNU with all 30 seats taken, Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research saw 46 of seats taken out of 48 and Manohar Patel Pharmacy College, Gondia and Gurunanak Pharmacy College Gondia each getting 22 of its seats occupied out of 48.

There are still many colleges who could not even get 2 percentage admissions in their colleges. These include Aghinotri Pharmacy College, Wardha and Karenjekar College, Bhandara. The low has caused a great worry for the Pharmacy colleges in the region.
