    There is the provision for the lateral admission for the candidates having passed the three year diploma course in any stream in the second year of the degree course of four year duration in the same stream in which one has acquired the diploma. Since the seats remain limited and as such the admission - prospects become quite competitive.
    In case the number of candidates is large and the seats being limited in a particular stream, the chairman of the admission - committee may conduct a written Examination for the shortlisting of the candidates. Finally, an oral interview would held prior to final admission. There may be other eligibility criterias as well such as the minimum marks secured in the diploma - course, migration - certificate etc.
    However, the aspirants are advised to choose a reputed Engineering - college so that they are selected through campus placements on completion of their Engineering - degree.

    There is no strict rules to be followed and procedure varies from one institute to another.
    Some institutes conduct exams which includes some part of 1st year syllabus and some institutes may conduct an interview for the same.
    Candidate who perform well get selected for lateral admission.

    There are some institutes accepting students on the basis of their scores in Diploma. They do not conduct and extra test for interview.
