Online admission for junior colleges back with a bang

Online admission for junior colleges back with a bang

Mumbai: No more waiting in the long queues for admission in the colleges, students can reap the benefits of online admission in junior colleges once again.

"There will be an online admission system across the Mumbai Metropolitan Region for class X students applying for the first year of junior college and the system is completely different from last year," Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, State Education Minister said on March 25.

The system was launched for the first time in Mumbai last year. However, few months back, the state education department said there would be no online admissions this year, following complaints over technical snags last year.

"New policy and guidelines for online admissions, which will be more transparent and user-friendly compared to last year have been introduced. But the details on the new system cannot be divulged because of the model code of conduct at present," added Patil.

"I think this will reduce the tension related with the admissions in junior college and make the system more student-friendly,'' Fr Francis Swamy, principal of Holy Family School, Andheri, said.

"Even though parents are apprehensive but I think this will lessen the tension associated with junior college admissions. I would not rely on the system unless it was in place for a few years and found to be foolproof,'' Meher Marfatia, a parent of a class X student, said. source:
