Deccan Express | After the cancellation of the board examination especially for the 12th standard, students and parents are eying on the possible admission process for under graduation courses.
There are talks going on about whether to conduct Common Entrance Tests (CET) for admission or students should be given admission on the basis of their marks. However, the different evaluation processes of different boards can be a hindrance.
Higher and Technical Education Minister today threw some light on the admission process for the non-technical course after 12th that is admission for BA, B.Sc., B.Com, etc courses.
Uday Samant was in Pune to interact with teacher organizations who were protesting on the long-pending issue of recruitment of teaching staff in universities. Later he threw light on the way the state government is thinking regarding the admissions.
He said “There are options of either conducting CET for admission in the non-technical course or conduct the admission process based on 12th marks. Board exams have been canceled due to the pandemic and to solve the issues related to admissions for the nonprofessional courses the government is waiting for the 12th results. After our study about the mark sheets, we will decide whether to take CET or not.”
While sharing about the admission about the technical courses after 12th he said, “CET for the technical course will be conducted in last week of the July or in the first week of August. The results will also be declared soon. Links for the CET are already on.”
After meeting with the teachers’ organizations who conducted protests, Samant said, “Maha Vikas Aghadi government had decided to fill 4074 posts, out of these 1600 posts have been filled. The process for the remaining 3074 teaching staff posts was on hold due to Pandemic. Recently I have processed the file and in a week it will be signed by Deputy CM and Maharashtra Finance minister Ajit Pawar followed by Government Resolution (GR) will be issued. After I told them these details they have called off protest”
