Being an UR, non EWS candidate

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?

More than 600 seats r wasted in INICET as open round cancelled. These huge no of students will put pressure on Neet PG counselling. So think twice while filling choice

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