The Curriculum Sub-Committee, which was formed to look into the anomalies in the Higher Secondary admissions, have recommended that only CBSE students, who have appeared for the Board examination and not the school-level examination, be considered eligible for the admissions to plus-I in the higher secondary.
The single-window system admissions to Plus-I will consider only students who have passed the common Board examination, whichever be the Board. There were widespread complaints that the CBSE students after attending school-level examinations were applying for the Plus-I with higher grades pushing the students from state syllabus to the tail-end in the allotments. Another recommendation made by the sub-committee is to gift bonus marks to students from the state syllabus.
The Committee recommended this not to push out the CBSE students from the admissions, instead to give weightage to the state syllabus students, a Committee member said.
The committee has also recommended that the students, who apply in the same school, be given additional bonus up to five points so as to enable them for admissions. Higher Secondary Joint Director Anilkumar, who was a member of the sub- committee, said that the recommendations were not final.
They have been submitted to the Curriculum Committee which will take the final decision. The Sub-Committee was formed on the directive of the Education Minister following complaints that many eligible state sylabus students were not given admissions to the Plus-I courses.
The state do not have the required seats to accommodate all the students who pass out SSLC.
The recommendations have been made so as to give weightage to state students from losing out to students from other Boards.
