(c)   Disciplines & Seats: Available disciplines and information regarding distribution of seats in 2 year Diploma programmes are given in Table 4.1.
Table 4.1

(d)  Admission Procedure: (Only for SLIET certificate students admitted in the year 2013 ): There will be vertical mobility of 50% of the sanctioned strength in each Certificate Programme to Diploma Programme. The linkage between Certificate and Diploma modules is illustrated in Table 4.2. For vertical promotion from Certificate course to Diploma course against these reserved seats, the Certificate course students shall apply for entrance test (SET-II) in order to enter into the Diploma stream as per Table 4.2. Such students have to apply through online mode. A SLIET student will be eligible for admission under this category who had got admission in Certificate course in 2013-2014 & not earlier and had completed the course in the prescribed period of normal study i.e. two years and by availing only prescribed chances to clear a subject. The students admitted under NRI / PWD category will not be eligible for promotion
