In a strange move, Patna University has released the schedule for admission in its various undergraduate and post graduate courses. However, students are in dilemma how to apply as most of their class 12 exams are pending or results not declared yet.
Many boards are struggling to finish their exams amid lockdown due to coronavirus.
Except the Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB), no other board, including Central Board for Secondary Examination (CBSE) and Indian School Certificate (ISC), have completed the class 12th examinations.
Even, BSEB has not yet announced the date for application of scrutiny for answer sheets.
As per the PU released notification, online application for the common entrance test (CET) begins on April 3 for admission into undergraduate courses.
April 23 has been fixed as the last day for online application, by the time results of CBSE and ISC might not be out.
Over coronavirus outbreak, the CBSE exams were postponed till April 14. A latest notification issued by CBSE states that the board will notify at least 10 days before resuming the board exams which implies the board exam is likely to be held in April last week or starting of May.
ISC is also to announce the rescheduling of examination of eight remaining papers.
A PU official said, “We are sticking to academic calendar of the university. Every year the online form filling process begins in the first week of April. After meeting, it may extend form filling and entrance examination dates. We would try best so that student would not suffer.”
Meanwhile, other private colleges and universities have also opened their online admission portal for taking admission in new academic session.
