College admissions CAP brochures & admission forms

Thousands may not get college admissions
Karachi, Aug 05: The policy on admissions to first-year classes in the public sector colleges and higher secondary schools of the city under the centralised admission policy (CAP) will be announced in a couple of days amid apprehensions that around 50 per cent of the students who have matriculated with science group may be deprived of admissions to government institutions because of limited number of seats available in these institutions.

The number of admissions likely to be offered in the science faculty in the city's public sector colleges and higher secondary schools for the ensuing academic year will be between 44,000 and 45,000, whereas the number of students who have matriculated with science group from the Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) alone stood at 93,545, sources said.

In addition to these over 93,000 fresh matric science students, there will be around 10,000 more candidates (about 5,000 O level students and the freshly matriculated students of the Sindh Board of Technical Education) who may seek admissions to first-year classes in the science faculty of the public sector colleges and higher secondary schools of the metropolis.

The number of students registered with the BSEK who passed with Grade A-I, Grade A and Grade B is 64,867 a total of 13,625 students got Grade A-I, 23,282 got Grade A and 27,960 students got Grade B.

In the present situation the chances of getting admissions to the public sector colleges and higher secondary schools of the metropolis seem bleak for over 19,000 students who passed in Grade B.

It means that almost 50 per cent of the fresh matric Science students, including over 19,000 Grade B and the 21,578 Grade C students, will be compelled to seek admissions to the private colleges.

On the other hand, the fee of private colleges is much higher than that of public sector colleges of the city and hence not affordable for those belonging to the poor, lower and middle classes.

Sources in the Centralised Admission Committee which had already been formed for completing the process of admissions to the city's government colleges and higher secondary schools under the CAP said on Tuesday that around 100,000 seats would be made available in the public sector institutions of the city to accommodate all those who had passed their Secondary School Certificate, Part-II (Class X) annual examinations from the Board of Secondary Education Karachi, Sindh Board of Technical Education as well as the O level.

Giving a break-up of total number of 100,000 seats available for admissions to first-year classes in the city's public sector colleges and higher secondary schools for the forthcoming academic year, sources said that around 38,000 admissions (22,000 male and 16,000 female) would be offered in the commerce faculty, about 44,000 admissions (22,000 each for male and female) would be given in the science faculty while remaining 18,000 admissions (13,000 male and 5,000 female) would be made available for students seeking admission to the arts faculty.

However, a cursory look at the statistics of the results of both the Science and General groups annual examinations-2011 and the number of seats being made available for admissions to first-year classes in the public sector colleges and higher secondary schools of the metropolis under the CAP clearly indicates that the number of students who did their matriculation with General group which includes candidates belonging to the commerce and humanities groups will have no problem in getting admissions in the public sector colleges and higher secondary schools.

However there will be a tough competition among those who will be seeking admissions to the Science faculty of government colleges and higher secondary schools.

CAP brochures & admission forms
The sources in the CAC said CAP brochures which would also contain admission forms were being printed.

An arrangement for their printing was made with the University of Karachi and they were in final stages of printing and as soon as they were printed they would be provided to banks for their sale.

Answering a question as to why the CAC could not accomplish the task of printing the brochure earlier so that the process of admissions to first-year classes in the metropolis would have begun immediately after the announcement of SSC (Class X) annual examinations results by the BSEK, the sources said that they could not do so because the provincial education department took more than a month to approve the centralised admission policy for the ensuing academic session.

Colleges officials expressed the apprehension that the new academic session for first-year classes scheduled to begin in the first week of September would be delayed once again as the CAP committee had neither been able to announce the admission policy, nor managed to get the admission brochure printed on time.

This was despite the fact the BSEK this year had announced the results of the SSC (Class X) annual examinations' both the general and science groups much ahead of the deadline fixed by the Sindh education department's steering committee, they added.

It may be pointed out here that though the process of admissions to the first-year classes in the city's public sector colleges and higher secondary schools for the past academic session had begun on July 25, 2010, it was delayed by more than a month and, as such classes in most of the city's government colleges and higher secondary schools had commenced much behind the schedule date of September 5.

Sources in the CAC, however, expressed the determination that the admissions process of the first-year classes in the city's public sector colleges and higher secondary schools would be accomplished in a month, saying that the ensuing academic session scheduled to begin in the first week of September would not be delayed.
