The state government on Tuesday submitted before the Kerala High Court that students can be admitted to Plus-Two course in higher secondary schools up to October 31 or a later date.

The state made the submission when an appeal filed by it challenging a single judge’s order directing to follow the provisions of Kerala Education Rules while granting admission to Plus-Two course was taken up for hearing.

The government submitted that during academic year 2010-11, admissions were made only till October 15, 2010, as new higher secondary schools were sanctioned during the mentioned academic year.

The mandatory 50 per cent attendance can be attained even if the classes start on a later date. The syllabus can be completed by taking extra special classes, it said.

A Division Bench comprising Chief Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice A M Shaffique reserved its order on the appeal.
