With the higher education department’s decision to extend last date of online admission in colleges from June 10 to July 10, the student community can now breathe a sigh of relief. The online admission began on a dull note on May 21 as students were waiting for their Class XII results.
Several students then raised questions over the wisdom of starting online admission before the announcement of results. According to department press release, higher education minister Laxmikant Sharma has given an approval to extend the last date for the convenience of students in online admission process for colleges implemented for the first time in the country in the state. Earlier, only those students could take part in the admission process, who had registered and had documents verified till June 11.
The department admitted that extending the last date of registration was necessary in the interest of students as results of higher secondary exams had been delayed. The department also mentioned that the last date extension was necessary to ensure that students living in remote areas of the state do not face any difficulty on account of introduction of online admission process throughout the state. The seat allotment in the first round of online admission process will be as per schedule from June 18 to 21. Seat allotment of the second round will be from June 25 to 27. Seat allotment for vacant seats will be made on the merit basis in the third round for registered students who get their documents verified till June 30. Admission allotment in the fourth round will be made on July 8 and 9.
