The list was supposed to be released at 5pm on Monday, but students were able to view their results only after midnight. Colleges did not know their cut-offs in the morning because they couldn’t access the list.

On the instructions of the education department, colleges began admitting students in the morning on the basis of allotment messages received on their individual log in ID.

The department asked colleges to confirm admissions students by asking them to log in to the admissions portal in front of the college authorities and show the seat allocation message, which they received late at 1am on Tuesday.
