BHUBANESWAR: The Plus II e-admission process will begin from June 7 this year. Notifying the modalities of admissions to higher secondary schools on Saturday, the School and Mass Education department informed that admissions to five streams will be done through the students academic management system (SAMS).

In the current academic session of 2024-25, there are 2,221 higher secondary schools in the state that have a student strength of 5,25,465 across arts, science, commerce, sanskrit and vocational streams.

In the 2023-24 academic session, there were 4.14 lakh seats at Plus II level, but close to 1.10 lakh seats had remained vacant. The highest of 55,000 seats had fallen vacant in the science stream.

“Seats are increased depending on the demand of students at the district-level. Since there is a demand and results have been good, the seat count in existing schools has been increased this time.
