MP BOARD of Secondary Education (MPBSE) will conduct counselling process based on merit for admissions to the private B Ed Colleges in the State.
Much to the relief of aspirants, the School Education Department has finally come out with the policy on admission process for the B Ed College following days of dithering after it was decided to scrap the entrance exam for admission to B Ed courses.
The new policy has several firsts, including the decision to conduct the merit-based counselling. It has also been decided that 25 per cent of the seats in private colleges will be made available to the students from other states. Many private colleges had courted controversies after it was detected that students from outside state had sought admissions to the
colleges by producing fake domicile certificates. The provision for allowing non-teacher candidates on 50 per cent seats of eight government B Ed colleges in the State has been scrapped and only in-service teachers can seek admission to the government B Ed Colleges from this year onwards.
As for the counselling process by the MPBSE, it has been decided that special computerised forms will be prepared for the purpose.
The candidates will be able to give option for 10-15 colleges of their choice and, based on merit, allotments would be made.
The students will be informed regarding allotment through letters and simultaneously allotment lists will be sent out to the colleges. The process is expected to take at least another 15 days to get started.
There are 28,000-odd seats available in private B Ed colleges and some 1,300 seats are available with eight government colleges.
