  1. Procedure for direct second year admission to college of engineering pune. I have got 85.43% in Diploma in civil engineering. Shall i hve to apprar for CAP or any other exams? I didn’t get enough information from college website.

  2. I have passed in 12th pcm Group with Computer Science as vocational and got marks of 46, 41, 35 out of 100 respectively with 118/200 in cmptr science. My CET mark for 2018 is 63/200. Can I get admission in Computer Science in BE course or otherwise.

  3. can you please tell me the direct second year engineering admission dates in maharashtra & procedure of admission

  4. My son is aspiring to get admission to B E First year in 2018 .
    While filling options form , for CAP round-1 , it is observed that COEP-IT Branch is not available while sorting out to choice list.
    But in seat matrix it is shown that , for COEP , seats availabilty is as below :
    – CS-60 seats & for IT-60 seats , too.
    Then why IT Branch is not available for choice list & further for preference list ?
    Will this make any loss to my son (or such like students), hoping admission to IT Branch in COEP, on basis of their SML no. ?

    If the IT Branch in COEP, is merged in CE/CSE , what are the total no. of seats of this branch now , it’s new correct name & code no. of this branch ?
    I will be very thankful DTE / COEP , if it is being made very clear & anthetic way , that what is exact situation in this case?
    I hope this information will help us atleast at the time of framing out options at CAP round-2.
    Please, clearify urgently.
    Thanks

    – Laxman Kalshetti
