EVEN AFTER extension of the last date of admissions to B Ed courses in private colleges, huge numbers of seats in these colleges still remain vacant and the process is now on fill up the seats at institution level. About 50 per cent of the 28000-odd seats in the 283 private colleges remained vacant and by the extended date only few additional seats could be filled up, it was learnt.
In the second phase to be conducted on September 4 and 6, students who had already applied but did not take admission in any college during the first phase can get their names registered for admission to any college of their choice.
Admission would be provided to them on the basis of merit and availability of seats. However transfers would not be allowed for the students who have already sought admissions in the first phase. The entire process would be completed under the supervision of the representatives of State Council of Education Research and Training (SCERT) to ensure free and
The college managements’ association has however expressed apprehension that even this process might not help to fill up all the vacant seats.
President of the MP Pradeshik Shiksha Mahavidyalaya Prabandhan Sangh Sanjay Pande said that the association expects the government to allow the institutions to fill up the seats at their level till the official last date of September 30 for admissions to professional courses. He expressed apprehension that a day’s exercise at institute level would not help fill
up many seats.
ADMISSION: During the second phase of the admission process on September 4, the eligible students will have to present themselves at institute of their choice at 10.00 am and apply for admissions by 12.00 noon. The main list and waiting list, as per vacancies available at college level and the merit of the student, would be put up by 5.00 pm on this date. The students whose names appear in the main list would be given admission on September 6 and the vacant seats would later be filled up with students on waiting list.
Meanwhile, the students who were dissatisfied with their allotments during the first phase have not found any succor with the SCERT. At least 500 students had approached the SCERT to get their allotments changed, many of them being girl students who have been given allotments at colleges far away from their hometowns. The allotments were made by the MP Board of Secondary Education on the basis of the merit of the students and the choices of institutions filled up by them.
