All 1.98 lakh students who submitted their online application forms on Thursday will be assured of a seat in junior college, said state education officials. In fact, there is a surplus of more than 65,000 seats this year; the only heartburn for those who have not done too well is that may not get into a college or stream of their choice.
Putting student’s fears to rest, an official from the office of the deputy director of education said: Students have nothing to worry about. All junior college aspirants will be assigned a college in the online process. There are more seats available this academic year when compared to previous years as many city colleges expanded their vocational courses. The bulk of seats in the open category is set to rise even more as various colleges under the minority, in-house and management quotas will be surrendering their unused seats to the education department. Junior college aspirants, however, are more concerned about making it to the college of their choice in their chosen stream. With a plethora of high-scorers and equally high cut-offs, bagging a seat in a top college will not be easy. I have opted for a seat in the bifocal category, but I’ve scored only 86% in my board exams. I doubt whether Ill get to study my chosen stream. But I m hoping Ill get a seat in the college of my choice. This way, I will be guaranteed a seat in the degree course at the same college, said Aashish Raje, who took the state board exam this year. Principals and faculty members are aware of the clamour for seats in coveted colleges, but admit that the competition is exceptionally tough this year. Even students who have scored 90% are understandably worried. There is no guarantee that they will get into the college of their choice as cut-offs are bound to rise due to the high marks that students have scored this time around, said Kirti Narain, principal of Jai Hind College at Churchgate. Many principals are of the opinion that students are more worried about getting into a good college than their chosen stream. Students are not paying too much attention to the academic course or stream, and are more concerned about bagging a seat in a well-known college, pointed out a principal of a suburban college.
