HYDERABAD: With just a day left for the third and final phase of degree admissions under the Degree Online Services Telangana (DOST) to conclude, private college managements have once again given a call for allowing spot admissions this year.  

As per data released by DOST, over 1.50 lakh allotments have been made and a little over lakh students had confirmed their seats till June 23. This year, 4 lakh seats are on offing by DOST for various undergraduate courses.

College managements which have been demanding spot admissions for the third consecutive year have urged TSCHE to allow it as this would help students left over from EAMCET to be absorbed in degree colleges.
Last year, 5,000 students were left without admissions. Experts feel this year the number could multiply two to three times as DOST admission is a month ahead of EAMCET schedule.

The admission process for EAMCET will end by mid-June and there will be spot admission for a couple of weeks. “By August, when these students would have exhausted all options, they will approach degree colleges. For their benefit, DOST must allow spot admission,” said Laxma Reddy, president, Association of Strengthening Private Institutions in Rural Areas.  

Barring the 350-degree colleges in the twin cities, most colleges in the districts and in rural areas are struggling to fill seats. During the first phase, 1.37 lakh students registered. Meanwhile, a representation was submitted to Prof R Limbadri, DOST convenor and vice chairman of  TSCHE, to allow spot admission as in case of professional courses like EAMCET, MBA, MCA, etc.
