`Keep options open'

By Our Staff Reporter

COIMBATORE, JUNE 4 . Deciding on colleges and courses well in advance, and keeping several options open is the best way to face the counselling session for engineering admission, said speakers at a programme for engineering candidates at the Government College of Technology, here today.

Organised by the Coimbatore chapter of the Computer Society of India, Anna University representative, N. Kumaravel, said that candidates, who had already joined an academic institution and handed over their original certificates, should be ready with a certificate stating that the documents were with the institution.

It was also important for candidates to update their marks and their position in the ranklist, in case there were any changes as a result of the revaluation. Since increase or decrease in the cut-off marks could affect the date when the candidate was required to attend counselling, it was better to seek the advice of admission officials in advance.

Seats would be allotted only on the basis of the merit ranking, and a foolproof computerised network would ensure that no one could jump the queue or gain unfair advantage in any way.

Counselling would be done simultaneously in Chennai, Madurai, Trichy and Coimbatore, and these centres would be interlinked. The Coimbatore Zone Admissions Coordinator, V. P. Arunachalam, said that a leased line from Videsh Sanchar Nigam Ltd had been used to link the four centres. Computers had been networked and tested well in advance, to ensure that the process would operate without a hitch.

A counter of the Karur Vysya Bank would operate at the venue, to help students speedily pay the fee required.Officials would verify the original documents at the counselling centre when the candidates handed over their counselling form.Candidates would have to register their arrival for counselling and admission.

Only one person would be allowed to accompany the candidate.

Students would be called into the counselling hall according to their rank. When seated in front of the terminals, they could select their college and branch, sign the confirmation letter and get their allotment order. The principal of the college, S. Arumugam, presided. The programme drew large numbers of students and parents.
