Out of all seats, 85% seats are reserved for the UT Pool and rest 15% for the General Pool (Outside UT Pool).
GGDSD College once again remained one of the most sought after colleges by the students of both the categories. But this time, Government College of Commerce and Business Administration in Sector 50 (GCCBA-50) has replaced DAV College, Sector 10, as the second most preferred co-educational college in the city for the stream.
