DAVANGERE: The sudden decision of Davangere University to cancel degree admissions of the students who passed the one-year II PUC bridge course through the distance education has put the future of a large number of students under a cloud. Some students have already taken admission to degree courses in the university in Davangere and Chitradurga districts. The distance education course was conducted by the Karnataka State Open University (KSOU). Around 700 students will be affected by this move. According to sources in the Vice-Chancellor’s office, the university had given admission to a large number of students who had passed the bridge course conducted for those who had not passed SSLC and PUC in the regular manner. However, all of a sudden, the university issued an order that any student who had got admission to degree courses after completing the bridge course will not be eligible to continue. The circular issued to all degree colleges said the permission was given to students who did their one year PU (10+2) bridge course under the KSOU, National Institute of Open Schooling and National Institute of Research and Development to take up degree admissions. “It has come to the notice of our university that in other universities the admission for bridge course students was not given. Only those who did II PUC are eligible for degree courses, hence admissions are denied to bridge course students to study in degree courses,” the circular said.
