Pune: If you know someone who has recently given their SSC exam, tell them to pick a college near their house after they get their results. The Deputy Director of Education has issued instructions to all the schools to counsel their students in this regard.
From this year, The Education department has prohibited the local migration of students from one college to another. They have instructed the college authorities to guide students during the form filling process.
The class XI admissions will be done through Central Admission Process (CAP) which will be conducted online and almost 57,000 students have filled the forms of the first phase in which only personal information was required.
Balasaheb Ovhal, Assistant Director of Education, said that sometime the students take admissions in colleges that are remotely located. “Once the first year at junior college is over, all these students come running to the office and request to get transferred to the colleges which are near to their house. We have now decided to stop local migration of students from one college to another and as second phase begins, the school authorities have been directed to counsel students on this issue. We are preparing for the second phase of online admission and in this phase, the students will have to fill their marks and the college preferences. The results of class X are expected to arrive in the first or second week of June after which they can do access this phase,” he said.
The students and their parents do not wish to waste time in travelling during board exams as they are important and are expected to be extra cautious while entering the credentials and the college code during admissions.
