While on one hand, the education department is boasting that thousands of students bagged seats in the college, which was their first preference, hundreds are still struggling to find their names in the merit lists.
By the end of four rounds of junior college online admissions, many students who have scored above 80-85 % are yet to be allotted a seat in a Mumbai college. This is causing anxiety to many parents. My daughter has scored 82 % in the SSC exam and we filled 35 colleges in our option form. How is it possible that she hasn’t got a seat anywhere as yet asked a worried Hemant Mathrani, father of Naisha (16), who is now dreading that her form has been misplaced by the authorities. We contacted the education department officials but they are asking us to wait for the final merit list, added Hemant. Many parents and students have been visiting the office of the deputy director of the education department for the last two days. Harsh Solanki, scored 85 % in the Std. X board examination, is shocked that he still hasn’t been allotted a college seat. A resident of Cheera Bazaar, Harsh is afraid that his choice of colleges in his own ward will be out of reach for him because of their high cut-offs. I applied to all the colleges in south Mumbai. It’s surprising that I still haven’t got a seat anywhere, said Solanki, who is worried that even after scoring well, he will have to wait for the admissions to go offline to get a seat in a college of his choice. Education officials, who have been receiving too many such complaints by parents, are scrutinizing forms of every student. One of the first things we examine is the preference for the college mentioned in the forms. We told students that they should opt for colleges based on their marks and the previous year’s cutoffs, said an official from the office of the deputy director of education. He added, if candidates have failed to do so, then they will have to face such problems.
