Undergraduate Engineering Entrance Examination (UGEE)

Other modes of admission

 UGEE Admission Procedure

Applicants who applied for admission via the UGEE mode appear for an exam and are shortlisted for interviews based on the exam performance. The qualified applicants (found suitable in the interview) are ranked based on their interview performance, as judged by the interview panel.

Seats are allocated to applicants, as per rank, in multiple rounds. In each round, an applicant is allocated a seat in a programme, as per rank and preference.

Rounds of admission:

  • The admission process has multiple rounds.
  • Only qualified applicants are eligible for seat allotment.
  • In each round, an applicant has a deadline to accept by paying the requisite fees or decline the allotted seat; an applicant can lock the seat, if satisfied with the allotted programme.
  • If an applicant did not accept and pay for an allotted seat by the deadline, the seat will be treated as declined by the candidate.
  • If no seat is allotted to an applicant in a Round, the applicant can continue to the next round. However, an applicant has to give consent to participate in the next round. A one-time payment (Rs 10,000 for seat allocation and Rs 10,000 as advance towards tuition fee) is required for continuation to the second and further rounds.

The flowchart below explains the process that an applicant is to follow in every round. (Click on the flowchart to view in full size).
