10. If you have not been allotted a seat, then you can fill another option form online. Repeat the same procedure from step 6 to step 8.
11. If you still wish to do pharmacy, then be prepared to go to AURANGABAD because round 3 is held in Govt. College of Engineering, Aurangabad. Generally, a student seat secures a seat by Round 3 in Aurangabad.
After Round 3, some colleges such Bombay College of Pharmacy, Institute of Chemical Technology hold vacancy rounds. What happens is that admissions to medical colleges moves forward at a slower pace as compared to Pharmacy admissions. So a lot of students tend to secure admissions in Pharmacy out of fear of losing out on a seat altogether. By the end of the third round, a number of students who are are primarily interested in medicine are allotted seats in medicine colleges, and hence they withdraw admissions from Pharmacy colleges. This creates vacancies which the colleges aim to fill by holding admissions rounds at the individual college level. This is the final round of admissions and a good chance for those interested in going to a better-ranked college. A lot of students remain unaware of this and tend to lose out.
