Staff Correspondent: The admission process at the colleges across the country will begin today with the admission seekers applying online to different colleges.
Like last year, this year the applications for college enrolment will be received online and through mobile phones while the last date of submission is May 23.
Students qaulifying the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent examinations would get admission on the basis of their results.
Last year, the Education Ministry has issued the admission policy for class XI admission seekers in the 2017-18 academic calendar under which 100% admission would be through the merit list.
According to the policy, all seats would be filled up first from the merit list and after that, if any seats remain vacant, that would be filled up with the quota reserved for different groups.
Currently, the freedom fighters’ children and grandchildren enjoy 5 percent quota in the college admission, 3% reserved for students from districts, 2% for children of teachers or managing committee members or staff of the education ministry and its offices concerned, 0.5% for BKSP students and 0.5% reserved for the children of expatriates.
The students who have gone for re-scrutinising their results can submit their admission forms on June 3 and 4.
A student can apply to up to 10 institutions of his or her choice when preferences were restricted to five, of which one would be given to him or her on merit.
The merit list of students will be published on June 10 and students will be able to enroll from June 11 to 18.
Classes of 11th graders will begin on July 1.
