A special round for admission to professional courses for students passing supplementary higher secondary certificate (HSC and Std XII) examinations would be conducted after the results are announced.
Students who have not filed the online application form can also participate in this special round. The directorate of technical education said that the admission deadline has now been extended to August 31 so that more students participate in the admission procedure.

As per the new schedule, the last date for online registration of application for admission on the website, document verification and confirmation at FC is August 24.The cut-off date for admissions is August 31, Meshram said.
As a result of the new provision, the Maharashtra state board of secondary and higher secondary education is expected to declare the results of the HSC supplementary exam by August 22. This will enable students, who pass this exam, to apply for the undergraduate courses in the next two days.
The state government had moved an application in Supreme Court for an extension of the deadline for filing the admission form.
The standing counsel for the state government, Nishant Katneshwarkar, said, “Total number of students who appeared in the supplementary examination is 91,848. The court extended the time provided for admission from August 15 to August 31. The successful students will now have an opportunity to get admission in various professional technical courses.“
The admission process and the extra rounds have already taken place. Currently , admission is underway in institutions with vacant seats. However, an order passed by the apex court in the last week stated that the admission deadline will be extended to August 31. This will benefit students passing the supplementary examinations.
