Securing admission to Class XI in the college of your choice just got easier. The cut-off percentage for Class XI admissions this year has come down by two to four per cent across all streams (see below). The reasons cited for this decline are the scrapping of percentile formula and increase in seats — at least 2,500 — mainly for the science stream.

”The percentile formula,or standardisation of marks by taking an average of the top 10 scores,has been scrapped by the Bombay High Court this year,which is one of the reasons for the lower cut-off percentages,” said D N Sheth,principal,S P College. Last year,it is because of this formula that the cut-offs had gone up by two per cent. Another reason,Sheth said,is that 2,500 additional seats have ensured admission to all students.

This year,a total of 48,881 applications were received and admissions have been granted to all the students based on their preferences,scores and proximity of the colleges. “More than 90 per cent students have been allotted colleges that were among their first three choices,” said Sunil Magar,chairman of Class XI centralised admission procedure (CAP) at a press meet on Thursday.

Meanwhile,students continue to opt for the science stream,with 24,623 applications received for the 18,383 available seats even as around 8,500 seats from the arts faculty are likely to remain vacant. “We have granted 10 to 20 percent additional seats (about 2,000 as against 1,120 last year) in leading science colleges to accommodate the surplus students,” said V M Gaikwad,assistant deputy director (education) and member secretary of Class XI CAP.

On the other hand,out of the 11,020 arts seats in the city,only 2,444 students have opted for arts,leaving 8,576 seats vacant.

Magar,who is also deputy director (education),said that demands for an additional division from any college would be considered. While the decision on ATKT for SSC students is still awaited,if the government decides to implement it from this year,there would be surplus students seeking admission mainly for arts and commerce courses.

Fergusson admissions go online

Starting this year,Fergusson College will hold its admissions online. “Students who have been allotted Fergusson through CAP should visit to fill the online application forms,” said Rekha Palshikar,vice principal of the college.

Grievance cell

Students who have not been allotted colleges of their preference despite scoring the cut-off per cent can submit a written complaint to the grievance cell set up at 21 junior colleges,between July 24 and 27 or call 65005311,65005312.
