Students of Rajasthan Board of Education grab most of the seats in the government colleges for undergraduate courses this year with the introduction of the new percentile system. The decision to introduce percentile system has showered them with undue advantage of getting admissions in some of the best colleges of the state.
A plea was submitted that said that the state board students get less marks due to tough marking and so are left behind in the admission list as compared to CBSE students who get higher marks. Education Minister Kalicharan Saraf raised the issue of partiality, after which the new percentile system was introduced.
This new system has fetched lot of problems in admission to the CBSE students. Though, the private colleges have refused to comply with this new system and will admit CBSE students. Even the government colleges are not very happy with this new system. A vice chancellor of a government university was upset with the decision and said the new system to be an outcome of conspiracy to cut down CBSE students from government colleges.
The sudden decision was taken ignoring various facts that CBSE students have in them than any state board student. The CBSE schools have higher levels of imparting education, the marks that the CBSE students carry has a great difference with that of the Rajasthan board.
But now, it’s time for Rajasthan board students to rejoice.
