Being an UR, non EWS candidate, should we still hope for the seats

Being an UR, non EWS candidate, should we still hope for the seats that got alloted last year, or should already start looking for other branches? Can someone explain the impact of seat matrix on UR candidates? Is the panic created unnecessary?

Branch you can definitely expect at same rank, but a specific college you may or may not get.

Don’t trust others…compare last yr and this year seat matrix in pen and paper…this is all a game of elimination…the more you create panic more is the benefit of others…trust only yourself…
