It saw a significant increase in 2020-21 as the number of eligible students increased to 50. In comparison to 2020-21, the number of eligible candidates has decreased by 10 in the 2021-22 placement season.
Similarly, while the number of placed students and total offers have increased in comparison to the 2017-18 placement seasons, the number saw a decline in 2021-22 when compared to 2020-21.
The total number of offers in 2017-18 was 4, which increased to 15 in 2018-19 but has been declining since then, as it was 10 for two continuous years (2019-20 and 2020-21). It fell further down to 6 in 2021-22, which may be an effect of the Covid pandemic.
