The first cut-off list released for the 2014 admission season is based on the new percentile formula and the list has caused students belonging to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to vie for an admission seat in state-run colleges.
Substantial number of students having appeared in Rajasthan Board, in the first cut-off list made it to the four constituent colleges of Rajasthan University. However, the same is not the case with those students who appeared in CBSE boards. Hence, greater number of CBSE students has to look for seats in Private Universities and colleges. The admission scenario in Jaipur made the city students even more concerned as since the city alone has more than 55 schools located in it and limited state colleges.
Many students have lost hope of making it to the second cut off list, with only way to try in private colleges left now, if have to study from the state.
Many students are calling it as discrimination as those who were from state board and attained 10% lesser than CBSE students, also got successful in getting admission, while CBSE boar students still have to wait, despite belonging to same state.
According to the sources, that new method was introduced without consulting any state university. Although Rajasthan University raised objection to the decision and proposed entrance test to resolve the disparity, but the state government denied the proposal and request from being heard further.
