The think tank which moved Bombay high court for changes in the FYJC online admission last year has demanded that the government centralize admissions and include nonstate board junior colleges.
In a compilation of suggestions submitted to the state education department, the System Correcting Movement (SYSCOM) demanded that while the online admission covers only junior colleges affiliated to the Maha rashtra state board, the government should include non-state board junior colleges, like ISC and CBSE, in the system from the next academic year.
Among other demands are that quota seats at colleges should not exceed 50%.“In minority colleges, 50% seats are for students from the community, an additional 20% for in-house students and 5% management quota.This means the total reservation is almost 75%. The government must put a 50% cap so that general category stu dents have enough opportunities,“ said the report.
But the suggestions were not well received by institutions. “We begin our academic year earlier than the state board and have our own parameters for admissions.The online system will not work for us,“ said the viceprincipal of a CBSE school. Most CBSE and ISC institutions begin class XI before the announcement of SSC results. The state board’s junior college admissions are held after the results.
