THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: With the deadline for submitting application for admission to Higher Secondary course ending at 5 pm on Saturday, students from the CBSE stream, who are desirous of migrating to the state syllabus, were seen racing against time to submit their applications online before expiry of the deadline. This time around, the CBSE Class X results were published on May 28. The delay caused a lot of anxiety among parents and students.

In the wake of demands from CBSE students and parents, the Higher Secondary Directorate, which had initially set May 25 as the deadline for submitting applications for Higher Secondary course, extended it till May 30.  “We have already received over five lakh applications on the higher secondary admission portal, which also includes applications of both CBSE and state syllabus students.

“The CBSE students started applying immediately after the announcement of results on Thursday afternoon and they can do so till 5 pm on Saturday,” said P A Sajudeen, Joint Director (Academic), Higher Secondary Directorate. The official said it was up to the government to decide whether the deadline of May 30 must be extended to a  further date .
