With so much happening in IT, one would look for a system that is completely online, super-efficient, available 24×7 all the 52 weeks, inexpensive and user-friendly. The Universities and College Admission Service (UCAS) in the UK has used e-Governance to its advantage in college admission. This is a system worth emulating for all.
UCAS, registered as a charity, is a central link to students and colleges and automates all the processes to bring the key stakeholders of the admissions ecosystem together. UCAS keeps costs low though the service is of a very high quality. In 2005, more than 325 institutions of higher learning participated and admissions to 4,05,369 college seats based on 22,85,506 applicants who applied online were carried out by UCAS
