Pune: Now, students will have to be more careful while selecting a college, as Deputy Director of Education (DDE) Dinkar Temkar has released a set of rules for students of junior college (Standard XI) if they want to change their college.
Interestingly, the students are alloted colleges through Centralised Admission Process (CAP), but it was seen that students change their colleges alloted to them and would pursue admission in the college of their choice.
However, with the new set of rules, the students cannot change their colleges arbitrarily, and will have to abide by the rules while changing colleges.
The students will be allowed to change their college if it is too far from his/her home, or if they want to change their stream, or want to change the board of education. The other reasons include the transfer of parents or change in residential address of the student.
Meanwhile, the admissions for Standard XII, which have started now, will be done offline. Earlier, it was believed that it might become online from this year. The Deputy Director also has directed the colleges to make necessary changes in the CAP database after students change colleges in Std XII.
CAP for admissions to FYJC
The online Centralised Admission Process (CAP) for admissions to FYJC or Std XI is all set to begin from Thursday. The link for filling the Part 1 of the application forms will be activated on Thursday, 11 am onwards.
The guidance/information booklets that contain all the admission related information have already been distributed. The students, who have appeared for SSC examination and were studying at the State Board schools in Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad, need to fill their forms at their respective schools and get them approved by the school principals. The approval is essential to go ahead with the admission process. The schools need to frame a timetable and ensure that all their students fill the Part 1 of the application forms before the SSC results are declared.
As far as students from schools outside above-mentioned areas are concerned, they need to go to the appropriate Zonal Centre as mentioned in the guidance booklet along with all necessary documents within 10 days of SSC results and fill and approve forms there. Students coming from boards of education other than State Board should also follow the similar process at zonal centres.
