2, 312 Students Seek Benefit Under Scheme
The Std XI centralised admission process (CAP) committee
released on Monday August 1, the provisional list of seat allotment under the state
governments allowed to keep term (ATKT) scheme for Std X students. The scheme is
for students who have failed in not more than two out of the total six subjects
in the state board's March 2011 exam.
A total of 2,312 candidates have sought benefit under the scheme, which was introduced
last year as part of the boards effort to reduce exam stress on students and give
them a fair chance to continue with their junior college studies, with a rider that
they will clear the remaining two Std X subjects in the boards supplementary exam.
For students seeking admission to Std XI science stream, it is mandatory to clear
mathematics and science subjects in the Std X exams with minimum 40% marks, considering
that science studies require practical lab work. There are no such conditions for
students seeking admission to the commerce and arts stream under the ATKT scheme.
The provisional list was released at 2 pm at five colleges, viz. Fergusson college
which is the main coordinating centre for Std XI CAP Sir Parsurambhau (SP), Nowrosjee
Wadia, and Aabasaheb Garware colleges in Pune, and the Mhalsakant Mahavidyalaya
in Akurdi for students hailing from the Pimpri Chinchwad township.
