The Centralized Admission Process (CAP) committee for standard XI scheduled a meeting on 26 July 2013 to take a decision over the admission CBSE students who have given school exams to junior colleges or not.
The issues faced by the CAP panel from the time when the CBSE was working as part of its reforms to alleviate the stress of the students and switched to the continuous and comprehensive evaluation system and provide student a liability to appear in the class X board examination or to give a school examination.
Suman Shinde, Deputy Director (education) said that till now they have no information from the state department of school education regarding admission of CBSE school exam pass students to the state education board’s junior colleges. She added that they will discuss this topic at a meeting scheduled on 26 July 2013.
After CAP over, the state has released a circular a couple of years ago according which the CBSE school examination students were allowed to be considered for admission against the present vacancies as “a one-time exception”.The
Maharashtra state board of secondary and higher secondary education make out only those Class X qualifications that are equivalent of its own. For example, the CBSE board examination qualification is similar to the state board qualification however the CBSE school examination does not. However, the issue gets more prominent for school examination outside Maharashtra students as in Pune there are fewer number of CBSE high schools or junior colleges as compared to those run by the state board.
The CBSE school examination qualified students have no problem in taking admission in schools offering class XI under CBSE. As per the first list issued on Monday, a total of 2,696 who have qualified the CBSE board examination, applied for class XI standard.
The students have to provide an undertaking on a Rs 100 stamp paper affirming that their admissions will be subject to confirmation after the state education board scrutinizes and grants an equivalence to their qualification.
