The UT Education department will be conducting the fourth round of counseling for admission to Class 11th due to vacant seats. It has been noted that there are still 82 vacant seats after the third round of counseling and vacancy is further expected to increase. The dates have not yet been confirmed for the same. Authorities from the UT education office said that correct information on what numbers of seats altogether are empty will be accessible by Thursday. "A clear idea of seats will come after schools send us the data on how many total students deposited fees and claimed the seat allotted to them in the third round of counseling," said one of the admission Coordinators from District Education to the Times of India.
In the third round of counseling which began on August 13, about 2828 empty seats in various schools and streams were offered to the students. Out of these 2746 seats were allocated to the candidates. Of total forms received for 2828 seats around 500 were new applications while around 4000 applications from students who had been provided school and stream however they wished to switch.
Numerous guardians and candidates who have not got enrolled were visiting the district education department regularly with their complaints. On Monday around 70-80 guardians had even challenged outside DEO's office in part 19. "Parents are coming, and we are noting down their details. Once we open fourth round of counseling they will be allotted seats wherever vacant," said an official. Parents have claimed that their children did not get admission in the third round and as a result, they will be suffering the loss of classes.
