The Std XI centralized admission process (CAP) committee will be releasing the first list of seat allotments and cut-off percentages for the 159 junior colleges in the city and Pimpri Chinchwad on 20th July. The seat allotment list will also be posted on two websites: and at 3 pm on the same day. The schedule for the admission programme, including confirmation of seats, release of waiting lists and the programme for allowed-tokeep-term (ATKT) seat allotments, will also be announced simultaneously. As part of a stress-reducing measure, the government introduced the ATKT scheme a couple of years ago for Std X students who fail in a maximum of two out of the six subjects.
The condition is that the students have to clear the remaining subjects in the ensuing October / November supplementary examination. The seat allotment list was initially scheduled to be released on Wednesday, 18th July, but the same had to be put off due to some technical hitch faced by the CAP committee, a body headed by deputy director of education for Pune region and comprising representatives from junior colleges and high schools in Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad. Apart from seat allotments,much of the focus will be on the cut-offs, i.e. the percentage score at which admissions to a particular junior college or high school close.
Last year, the cut-offs had gone up marginally by 1% to 2% at most of the junior colleges / high schools. This was in keeping with the trend of higher cut-offs that had set in from 2010-11, when the best-5 policy, which allows the state education board to calculate a students percentage based on the marks in the best five out of the total six subjects. In fact, the 2010-11 cut-offs showed a 3% to 4% improvement over the previous year. This year, too, a fairly high number of students have scored above 90% and the same is expected to reflect in the high cut-offs at colleges which are sought-after.
