If selected, the candidate must produce the original certificate at the time of admission, failing which he/she will be treated as a general category candidate. 

11.4 Persons with Disabilities (PwD): 5% of seats are reserved in every category, i.e.,GE, GEN-EWS, OBC-NCL, SC and ST. Benefit would be given to those who have SEVERE dyslexia or at least 40% impairment irrespective of the type of disability i.e., locomotor, visual. Leprosy-cured candidates who are otherwise fit to pursue the course are also included in this sub-category. While submitting the completed application, the candidate must submit online a scanned copy of the certificate issued by a district medical board/competent authority in the prescribed format (choose the appropriate form: FORMPwD(II)/FORM-PwD(III)/FORM-PwD(IV)/FORM-DYSLEXIC-1/FORM-DYSLEXIC-2 given in pages 23-29). If selected, the candidate must produce the original certificate at the time of admission, failing which the offer of admission will be cancelled. PwD candidates using the services of a scribe / without scribe will get compensatory time of 50 minutes in Part I and 10 minutes in Part II.

If the candidate has already been admitted, his/her admission will be cancelled.

11.5 Dereservation: Unfilled seats reserved under GEN-EWS and OBC-NCL category will be de-reserved to OPEN category seats. However, seats remaining vacant under the SC and ST categories shall NOT be de-reserved to any category. The reservation for PwD candidates is horizontal and hence, unfilled seats will be dereserved to the respective categories i.e., unfilled SC-PwD seats will be converted to the SC category seats and so on.
The category chosen by a candidate at the time of registration for HSEE-2020 will be final and requests for change of category will NOT be entertained.

11.6 Foreign Nationals: Admission to the M.A. program for all foreign nationals will be made through HSEE-2020 only. Foreign nationals are outside the ambit of reservation of seats under the GEN-EWS, OBC-NCL, SC, ST and PwD categories as specified herein.
