COIMBATORE:The second round of counselling to fill vacant seats in undergraduate courses was held at the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University on Monday.

For the second round, the TNAU had called 255 candidates for the 138 seats which remain vacant. However, only 94 candidates attended the counselling and 54 of them have selected courses and colleges of their choice. The remaining 40 candidates have been waitlisted.

There are now 84 vacant seats, said S Mahimairaja, Dean (Agriculture), who is in charge of undergraduate admissions. In all, there are 1,461 seats in the 14 constituent colleges and five affiliated colleges of the TNAU.

So far this year, TNAU has called 3,776 candidates for counselling and filled 1,374 seats. In the first round held between June 29 and July 7, 1,323 seats were filled and 331 candidates waitlisted. As many as 13,401 candidates were called. “The counselling for NRI and Industrial quotas will be held on Thursday. The university will conduct separate counselling for waitlisted candidates. They will be offered seats which go vacant, as several students who are selected during the first and second rounds counselling do not join,” Mahimairaja added.

In the counselling held on June 27 for special category candidates, who include sportspersons, ex-servicemen, wards of freedom fighters and differently-abled persons, 32 seats were filled.
