While students of the state board are busy submitting their admission forms online, students from other boards like IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) and CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) are having a tough time this admission season. CBSE students who have given their board exams have not yet received their mark sheets from the board. Many colleges are turning away such students as they do not have their original mark sheets yet. It's a similar story with students of the IGCSE board, who took their exams in April-May. These students only have their provisional mark sheets or predicted marks in hand. Although the CBSE conducted its board exam in February-March, students are still awaiting mark sheets from the board, which are required to apply for junior college admissions. On Tuesday 28th June, a few CBSE schools received consolidated marks and grades, but students need original mark sheets for admissions.
Indu Mathur, principal of Apeejay School, said, "We only received a consolidated grading from the board. We have received complaints from many students who are seeking offline admission in minority quota that colleges are turning them away due to the absence of original mark sheets. While those who are applying online are not able to get their marks verified since they do not have their mark sheets." To help students out, schools are issuing letters stating that the mark sheets will be received shortly, but students have complained that colleges are not accepting these letters. Rama Sharma, the public relations officer for CBSE, said that the mark sheets for Maharashtra were expected to be dispatched by the Chennai Region in the coming week. Students from international schools have it no better. These students, who took their exams in April/ May, will not receive their mark sheets until August. They have been provided with provisional mark sheets and predicted marks. "We were told by several colleges that we will not get admission into the state board since we do not have proper mark sheets," said Seema Bhat, a parent. A senior education official said, "A similar problem was faced by students last year. But a resolution issued at that time said that admissions cannot be secured without original mark sheets. Such students should have taken their exams in October. We cannot give them admission now."
