General mathematics students will not be eligible for admissions to polytechnic courses, the Bombay high court ruled while upholding norms framed by the state. We will not review the eligibility criteria fixed by the director of education, said a division bench of Justice D.Y. Chandrachud and Justice R D Dhanuka. The court agreed with the state that the levels of general mathematics and higher mathematics were different. The court was hearing a petition filed by a Raigad student, Sujit Divekar, who had passed his SSC examinations earlier this year.
The petition claimed that Sujit s application to Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Polytechnic Institute in Raigad for admission in the ITI course was rejected as he had opted for general mathematics for his examinations. The Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education introduced general mathematics as an optional subject to maths in 2008, following the high rate of failures in the subject. However, over the last four years, less than 10% of the total students who appear for the exams have opted for general mathematics as it narrows down their options post-SSC. The petition claimed that a 2011 government circular had said that there was no difference between general and higher mathematics subjects. The government counsel, however, pointed out that the brochure for polytechnic courses made it clear that only SSC students who had opted for higher mathematics were eligible.
