After reviewing around 180 applications of students still awaiting admissions to Class XI,the education department plans to adjust them in the seven periphery government schools,as seats in other schools have been already filled up.

Students and parents are still coming with requests and applications to get admission in the desired schools near their residences,while some parents are worried about sending their daughters to the periphery schools away from their homes.

Also students claim that there is no quality teaching in these schools.

Subject expert Sunil Bedi said,“At this stage,we are considering only those students who couldn’t get admission through any of the three counselling sessions.”

“There are students with requests to give them admission in their desired schools. But the seats have already been filled and secondly they have very low CGPA’s,due to which,we cannot send them to a school of their choice,” he added.

“On September 2,we reviewed 120 applications from the government schools of Maloya and Dhanas,while 50-60 applications were from GMSSS Manimajra. There is no vacant seat in these schools,so we would have to adjust the students in other periphery schools,” added Bedi.

Deputy DEO,Vinay R Sood said,“Seats are still vacant in schools at Raipur Khurd,Kaimbvala,Behlana,Khuda Alisher and Khuda Lahora for the Arts stream and vocational courses. We will have to adjust the students in these schools itself.”

The principal of Government Senior Secondary School,Maloya,Gurmukh Singh said,“We had around 250 seats in the school,but last year the education department allotted 15 per cent more seats as the student population increased.”

“Presently,we have 286 seats in the school which have been filled. We are still getting four to five applications daily from students for

admissions,” he added.

Meanwhile,the admission in-charge at Government Model Senior Secondary School,Khuda Alisher,said,“Out of the 120 seats,13 seats are still vacant as students are not willing to take admission in the periphery schools.”

“But they don’t have any alternative now. The seats will be filled within two days,” he said.
