PROCEDURE OF ONLINE COUNSELLING AND JOINING AT THE COLLEGES:
Counselling for admission to B.Sc. Nursing Course, session 2021 will be conducted online. The candidates will submit online choices / preferences of Colleges, category etc. through university website (www.bfuhs.ac.in).
The Seats will be allocated as per the PPMET-2020 merit / eligibility criteria as mentioned in the Punjab Government notification in order of preferences given by the candidate, therefore, candidates are advised to submit preferences / choices carefully.
After provisional allocation of seat, candidates can download provisional allocation letter from the University website after login to their account and report to the respective allotted college along with all original documents for the checking of documents and their eligibility. Merely, issuing of Provisional allotment letter does not confer any right to claim the allocated seat as their provisional allotment is subject to verification of documents and checking of eligibility as per terms and conditions of Punjab Govt. Notification/Prospectus.
If any candidate will not report for joining to the respective college up to stipulated period or will not pay the requisite counselling/tuition fee etc. or found ineligible as per Punjab Government notification at any stage, his/her allocated seat will be cancelled automatically without any intimation and his/her seat shall be declared as vacant for the subsequent round of counseling.
If candidate is satisfied with seat allocated to him/her during online counselling, he/she is not required to participate in the subsequent rounds of counselling. In case, candidate wishes/intends to upgrade/change his/her seat/category then he/she will have to participate in the subsequent round of counselling by submitting preferences/choices afresh for the course/college/category/quota.
If any candidate wants to surrender/quit the course/seat, he/she will have to submit the written request to the Principal of respective college for surrender of seat before the university will declare the vacant seats for subsequent round of counselling so that resultant vacated seat can be added in the vacancy position of seats.
In case candidate is shifted /upgraded his seat in the subsequent round of counselling then there is no need to deposit tuition fee again but he/she has to deposit the difference in fee (if any).
It is pertinent to mention here that during the 2nd round of online counseling, the candidates can fill the choices of colleges/category/quota as per their choice although which are not reflecting in the vacancy position of seats because during 2nd online counseling any candidate can upgrade/shift seat as per his/her choice by vacating the already occupied seat of 1st counseling. This is also made clear that some seats of reserve categories, NRI Quota seats, etc., may remain vacant after exhausting all candidates of respective category/quota, therefore, any seat of any college may be vacant in 2nd round due to shifting/conversion of seats. Hence, it is not mandatory to fill only those choices/preference which are reflected in the vacancy position of seats. So candidates are advised to fill the preference/choices of college/category as per their choice.
The seats will be allocated as per availability of seats as per merit cum preference/choice submitted by the candidate.
