BSEB to begin online admissions for Class 11 from June 19
The Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) is set to commence registration for admissions in Class 11 through online facilitation system for students (OFSS) from June 19.
Board officials said a common application form will be uploaded on online admission portal on Friday. Those students who have cleared matriculation examination can apply for admission to Class 11 by registering themselves on www.ofssbihar.in by filling online form between June 19 to June 28.
BSEB has already uploaded a list of affiliated institutes, more than 3,600 higher secondary schools and colleges along with their locations, stream-wise seat availability and college type.
A senior BSEB official said, “Admission in Class 11 will be taken on 17.63 lakh seats across the state. Of these, science stream has the highest intake capacity of 45% followed by art 42% and commerce 13%. Applicants have to pay ₹300 per school or college for registration. Candidates can select a maximum of 20 schools or colleges as their preferred institutions.”
“The applicants are advised to go through common prospectus before registration for queries related to school or college allotment system, documents required for filling form etc. Those candidates who lack internet connectivity can apply for registration at Vasudha Centres across the state,” the official said.
BSEB chairman Anand Kishor said, “The Board will issue fresh dates for online registration for those students whose results are pending or those of other education boards like CBSE and ICSE, who are still waiting for their result announcement.”
Altogether, 12.93 lakh students cleared the matriculation exam conducted by BSEB this year.
Meanwhile, several private schools affiliated with CBSE have commenced provisional admissions in the absence of Board results while several missionary schools like Loyola High School and Notre Dame Academy are waiting for result announcement.
Private schools rued that admission in Class 11 has slowed down due to postponement of CBSE board results.
“We commenced online admission process for Class 11 in April. Around 10 students have taken admission in science stream while just two in commerce. We have intake capacity of 300 seats. Admissions are likely to pace up after the announcement of results,” said an admission counsellor of Kankarbagh-based school.
