In the same way, candidates who get seats only in the second round of NIMCET seat allotment 2020 and do not report are offered any seats later.

Following two options could be exercised after first and second round of NIMCET seat allotment 2020-

Option 1: Those, who are willing to finalize the seat allocated to them and wish to join there only. Their higher preferences, if any, will be considered for subsequent rounds.

if my graduation result comes at the end of july so how can i able to attend the nimcet entrance exam which is held on may?

ayush mishra 25th Jan, 2020

Hey Ayush!

There would not be any problem even if your graduation results come after the date of NIMCET examination. The eligibility criteria of the NIMCET examination clearly states that the applicants who are in the last year of their bachelor’s programme are also eligible to apply for the exam and there won't be any problems in their application. However, the candidates must provide their proof or certificate of passing latest by September 15, 2020. So, even if your graduation results come by the end of July you can apply for NIMCET and give the certificate or proof of passing your graduation degree by September which would be available to you by then. Also, the  candidates who have completed or are completing their B.Sc./ B.Sc. (Hons)/BCA/ BIT course from Open Universities are also eligible to apply provided the programme is approved by UGC / AICTE and Distance Education Council (DEC) of Govt. of India.

Hope this helps you.
