    A thousand seats are vacant in 16 BBA colleges in the state. To fill these seats, it has been decided to consider for admission those students who had failed in one subject in the HSC (general) stream exam and later passed the supplementary test held in July. Students have been directed to approach the colleges directly for admission from Tuesday. The admission committee officials said that 2,000 seats are vacant in commerce colleges. In this case too, students have been asked to approach colleges directly for admission from Tuesday.

    A committee of Gujarat University had recently decided to offer admission to students who had cleared the supplementary exams. The students will face a 15-mark cut per trial and if after the cut the students have the mandatory 45 per cent marks, they will be eligible for admission.

    The committee has decided not to sanction any further increase in the number of seats in BBA and BCom colleges.

    Authorities said that any college that admits more than 150 students will be penalized.
