Students are now anxious to get admission to undergraduate courses after the Class XII results were declared across academic boards. The wait for students to apply for courses to Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU), however, just got longer. The admissions department at the university has put out a notification that the results of the online entrance examination, which was conducted for the first time this year for admissions to all graduate, postgraduate and integrated courses, have been delayed by a week.
Since board examinations for Class XII were cancelled across boards, admissions to first-year degree courses pose a big question. The SPPU had announced that it will conduct an online entrance examination between July 25 and 28. The university also conducted a pre-exam mock test.
The results of the entrance test were supposed to be declared on July 31, following which merit and waiting lists for admissions to all courses were to be declared from August 7 on the SPPU website, as per a schedule released earlier.
In the latest notification, however, it has been specified that the results have been delayed by a week.
Uttam Chavan, deputy registrar, admissions department of SPPU, said, “Due to the recent floods, several students who registered for the entrance exam could not appear for it due to poor network connectivity and other issues. There are over 150 such students and, even though the last date has elapsed, we need to make arrangements for these students to write the exam. That’s why the results have been delayed for a few days.”
