Provisional Admission to Jr. Colleges for Board Exam Students
The state government's decision to allow CBSE students, who
took the board exam, to apply to junior colleges without their original mark sheets
has brought relief to thousands of applicants, but the fate of those who gave the
school test is still unclear.
The deputy director of education has instructed junior colleges to accept applications
of only those CBSE students who appeared for board exams. When students get the
approval of their school principals before submitting their forms, the principals
should confirm if the student has given the school based exam or the board one,
said an official from the deputy director of education’s office. He added students
who appeared for school-based assessment can apply to junior colleges after the
on line process ends.
Provisional admissions will be based on a letter attested by CBSE schools with the
applicant’s marks on it. We are giving students their marks on our school letterhead
so that there are no issues. We received our schools consolidated report from the
CBSE board so mark sheets should reach soon, said Seema Maindiratta, principal of
DAV School in Kharghar.
Sources in the school education department said CBSE representatives plan to meet
the education minister and senior government officials on Monday. It is only after
the meetings that we will take the final call on students, who took the school test,
said a senior official.
We are still in the lurch. Neither do we have mark sheets nor will our applications
be accepted in colleges. CBSE schools have already started their classes and we
are still hoping the state government will accept our applications to junior colleges,
said Naina Mathuria, whose child gave the school based exam.
So far, option forms of 1,594 CBSE students have been confirmed through online admissions.
