Increase in cutoff percentages is going to be a major worry for students as the Chandigarh education department starts the admission process for 12,500 seats for Class 11 from next week. (June 11)
Last year, the cut - off for admission to Class 11 in the city’s government schools had gone up (see box). One of the factors that push competition here is the influx of students from Panchkula, Mohali and other parts of the region, who get admitted in gover nment schools here to be eligible for the 85% quota in the local colleges for higher studies.
Another factor that will increase competition, especially for the non-medical stream, is the largnumber of students scoring a CGPA of 10.
“Competition is expected to be tough,” said an expert. The last date for submission is June 20.
The prospectus can be purchased from GMSSS-Moder n Housing Complex, GMSSS-37B, GMSSS-28, GMSSS-20B, GMSSS46 and GMSSS-10 and will be submitted to these schools only.
The students will be provided the option of downloading and submitting the forms online. The first list of allotment of seats will be displayed on July 1 and the classes begin July 4.
NO INCREASE IN NUMBER OF SEATS THIS YEAR
The total number of seats in Class 11 remain at 12,500, the same as last year. Of this, nearly 6,000 seats are of humanities, 1,800 seats for commerce and vocational courses and 3,000 seats for science stream. However, the decision can affect prospects of the students with lower grades.
