Please note that during the updating, depending on the indicated order of preference, it is possible for a candidate to switch from a HTTA seat to an N-HTTA seat if N-HTTA is higher in order of preference given by the candidate.

Spot Admission: When the candidates who are given admission during first, second and subsequent various rounds of offers withdraw from the programme, the seats get vacant.
