Lucknow University to grant admission to all candidates, in these 2 Masters programmes

1st phase of counselling experiences hardships in filling vacant seats at LU.

The University of Lucknow has decided to grant admissions to candidates applying for Masters in Ancient Indian History and Masters in Yogic Sciences, irrespective of their performance in the entrance test. Pupils scoring zero in this examination will also be enrolled by the varsity, as the number of candidates who appeared for the test was even lower than the seats allocated for the programmes by the University.

Lucknow University in a fix

Filling up the seats has become a task for the authorities at the Lucknow University, as the candidate strength for admissions has fallen below the quota of seats pre-decided for the masters programmes, offered by the varsity. 126 individuals appeared for Ancient Indian History- a programme that enrolls around 180 students. Similarly, 42 candidates showed up for the Compound Science exam, which has a seat strength of 50.

Besides these two courses, the experts are facing problems in filling up seats after the 1st phase of counselling. Candidates have exhibited no interest in enrollment for the programmes like Philology, Urdu, Persian, Asian culture, Arabic and Arab culture as well. Only a few courses, like those of Fine Arts and Political Science, have been occupied by candidates.

Vacant seats in Lucknow University

Out of the 120 seats in Anthropology, 55 are yet to be allocated. Similarly, 25 seats out 120 are unoccupied in Social Work and 17 in Public Administration, which is a class of 160 students. 7 seats in Defense Studies which has 80 regular seats and 9 out of 40 in Physical Education are vacant.

The popularity of Home Science has also taken a plunge and out of 80, around 57 seats are yet to be filled. Geography, which is also a class of 80, has around 10 vacant seats. Around 65 seats have been left unoccupied in courses of Persian, Bhasha Shastra, Asian Culture, Arabica, Arab Culture and Sanskrit. 82 in Urdu and 34 seats in Functional Sanskrit are also unallotted.

Adding to the worries of the University, the candidates have also raised objections for uploading necessary documents for the counselling process, without the declaration of the results of the entrance examination. They have demanded the results to be released before moving further to the next phase of the admission funnel.
