Most junior colleges across the Mumbai will finally start FYJC classes today, 16th August. After two months of online and offline admissions, several colleges are planning to skip the first unit test. Principals are also worried about completing the first term portion and exam on schedule. Many principals are working with faculty members to prepare a timetable to ensure that the required syllabus is covered before the Diwali break in October.
Last year, colleges opened unusually late in September because of the Best-5 policy. This year, even though the government did not introduce any policy favouring state board students, FYJC classes have been delayed by one month. Before admission to junior college went online, we would open by the second week of July. The online process was brought about to make the system more transparent, but we have always been fair in admitting students. The system should be reviewed, said K C College principal Manju Nichani. Teachers say they need at least six weeks of classes before unit tests can be conducted, especially for science students as the syllabus has been upgraded. Kavita Rege, principal of Sathaye College at Vile Parle, said: It is not possible for us to conduct the unit test. We will start on Wednesday 17th August 16, 2011 as we are still to complete the offline process. Several colleges are worried about the public holidays lined up in August and September. Principals say that they cannot ask their faculty members to give up their public holidays. Our teachers take taking 27 to 28 lectures every week. We may work till April end to ensure all the topics are covered in class XI, especially for science students. Science students will have to complete their practicals and theory in a short span of time, said Nichani Bridging the Divide Dahanukar College at Vile Parle is planning to publish a dictionary for students who hail from regional medium schools. There are many students who come from Marathi-medium schools to junior college. They are not well-versed with the medium of instruction, which is English, and so we are planning to publish a dictionary. It will have the definition of words that are part of their syllabus as well as the Marathi translation. This will help them keep up with students from English medium schools, said Madhavi Pethe, college principal.
