Admissions to class XI of science,arts and commerce will commence from July 24,while merit lists for the three branches will be available on punenet.net from 3 pm onwards. The date was finalised during a meeting here on Monday, said D N Sheth,principal of S P College.
The class XI admission process has seen a delay of at least 15 days this year. While the arts and commerce lists were ready,the bifocal list was kept on hold till the verdict on 90:10 quota was out. As a result,science faculty lists were also delayed,as they could be prepared only after the bifocal admissions were done.
This year,around 7,000 seats have increased in the city and Pimpri-Chinchwad colleges. There is an increase of around 2,000 seats each of science and commerce stream this year over last year. A total of 21,029 applications were received for the science stream,as against the admission capacity of 18,535. While the response to science and commerce (English medium) stream was overwhelming,arts stream witnessed a record low response with only 731 students applying for 2,980 seats. Including arts (Marathi),this year around 8,000 seats of arts stream will remain vacant.
