what does waiting list in iiser means
Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) releases a list of applicants who partly qualify for entrance, but didnt get into the college just because there are no more vacancy for such students.
But as far as waiting list (WL) is concerned, it is great to atleast to be in it.
when a selected candidate fails to get into that college, these WL students (acc to their order of eligibilty) are called to get a seat in that college.
This is what waiting list in IISER mean.
I hope my answer was clear.
Feel free to ask any dobts in comments.
how many students appeared for IISER aptitude test 2020???
I am not sure of the actual count of people who have applied, but the number of applications finally accepted last year was around 20k.
Please keep in mind that this is the number of applicants who were allowed to write the exam i.e the students who fulfilled all eligibility criteria and also followed all necessary steps in the application form.
The acttual number will be around 2 lakhs.
Hope this helps!
