Even as the procedure for first year junior college (FYJC) admissions is far from over with officials announcing five more rounds of admissions starting July 27, six junior colleges in the city have been given the responsibility to conduct extra classes to avoid academic loss of students who take late admissions.
In a letter issued to the junior colleges, Dinkar Temkar, deputy director of education, Pune, said that though most students who have taken part in the online process of admissions have been allotted seats through the four CAP rounds, there are many students who have not been allotted seats, given allotments in far off colleges or not confirmed admissions despite allotments.
“Hundreds of these students would now get admissions through the subsequent CAP rounds. However, we have to ensure that these students face no academic loss since the junior colleges have opened on July 18,” Temkar said.
While SP College on Tilak Road, SM Joshi Junior College in Hadapsar and Shri Mhalsakant Junior College in Akurdi have been asked to conduct Science faculty lectures, Modern College in Shivaji Nagar, Sadhana College in Hadapsar and Jai Hind College in Pimpri have been asked to conduct Commerce lectures.
The DyDE letter asks colleges to make arrangements for classrooms, teachers and other facilities needed to conduct lectures and ensure that no complaints are received from parents and students. The colleges have been asked to prepare a timetable for the extra lectures and intimate CAP officials accordingly.
“Once we receive the timetable from the colleges, we would declare it to the parents. However, the colleges have been asked to conduct lectures from July 27 to August 13,” said a CAP committee official.
