The provisional merit list for admission to BCom in colleges across Chandigarh, including the Department of Evening Studies at Panjab University (PU), and Ludhiana will be declared online (at PU's website) on Wednesday at 11 am.
Students can click on the link bcomadmissions.puchd.ac.in to view the list. They will be allowed to send objections and seek clarifications, if any, before July 6 and the final list will be uploaded on July 8. The list of selected candidates will be displayed at the respective colleges on July 11 and the fee submission will begin immediately.
The final physical counselling will then be conducted on July 23 at the PU Campus, after consideration of requests on change in preferences by students.
For a total of 4,000 seats, nearly 12,000 students have applied this year. Owing to the huge rush for the admissions and also the delay in the schedule this year, PU's coordination committee, which conducts the BCom admissions via a centralised process, has planned to complete the seat allocation in a single round of counselling this time.
This time, the applicants have been asked to provide six preferences of colleges. Among the 11 colleges offering BCom in Chandigarh, GGDSD College Sector 32 has been first choice of most of the students in the last few years, resulting in the college setting the highest admission cut-off.
Last year, the highest and the lowest cut-off set by GGDSD College for UT General pool was 108.8 pc and 103. 4 pc, respectively.
