Guwahati: The Assam Government has asked the colleges to reserve 75% of college seats for Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) pass out students. This reservation has brought a tough route for the admission of other boards students.
With this, only 25% of the college seats will be available for different boards students of the state.
As per state government source, the directorate desires to offer some respite to the learners, who’ve cleared the state boards for Class XII with excessive percentages below the analytical method-primarily based report this year.
But, the coverage will disturb college scholars who cleared the Class XII boards from CBSE-affiliated institutes. According to education department officers, most of the best institutes are under CBSE.
“The Govt. has decided that 75% of seats in Degree Courses of the Govt. including Provincialized Colleges shall be reserve for the students of AHSEC. Hence you are requested to take certain action respectively,” read the letter from the director of higher schooling to the state universities and authorities-run colleges.
The directive has further been issued to educational institutions to accommodate 20% more college students in the underneath-graduate (U.G.) stage.
“Govt. in the Education Department has chosen to improve the accommodation space of U.G. level programs in the institutions by 20 %,. Hence you are asked to provide the improvement by granting admission for day and evening shift,” read the message, which has been marked as ‘topmost urgent’.
Furthermore, the directorate has explained that the admission gateway of AHSEC (www.darpan.ahsec.on-line.in) would be the public for all educational institutions for managing Class XI admissions.
It continued that every ambitious college student should register themselves in the AHSEC portal, using their roll number. Then, later, they may have the liberty to choose the five institutions for their suitability for admission.
