Govt college admissions to begin from August 6

Karachi, Aug 4: The process of admission to first-year classes for all faculties in the government city colleges will begin from August 6 with the sale of admission forms and brochures through designated banks for Rs100. This will continue till August 21 from branches of Habib Bank Limited and the first merit list is expected to come out during the last week of the month.

The Director Colleges Rafiq Siddique said that admissions will be given to more than 90,000 students purely on the basis of merit in 118 colleges and 32 higher secondary schools, including the Aga Khan Board students. He said that last year, 76,000 students were accommodated in city colleges. Furthermore, 41 information centres have been set up to aid students. He further said that 117 colleges were included in the brochure, while one college was not added to the list as it was refused permission.

He further explained that the provincial secretary has allowed opening the college in the building where Director Schools have been positioned. He said that four rooms were opened for the college and General and Commerce group classes will commence soon. However, as soon as the new building is allocated, this building will be vacated, he added.

Moreover, the Board Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) officials, when contacted regarding the issuance of marksheets, said that they will start issuing them from August 15. He further said that the marksheets will be issued town-wise.

When the Acting Controller of Examination, Bizatullah Khan, was asked how this process of admission will be managed, considering the last date for submitting forms has been fixed for August 21, he said that the Centralised Admission Policy (Cap) Director Colleges did not consult board officials before giving the admission date.

However, the District Commissioner said that the date will be extended in order to facilitate every student, adding that the provincial education department wants to execute the admission process in a foolproof manner, giving priority solely on merit.

He also explained that admission under Cap and other related mechanisms will remain almost the same as the previous years. Thus, he said there will be a smooth take-off and related tasks will be undertaken by the officers concerned as well as the centralised committee within the stipulated period.

The DC further added that a 23-member admission committee was notified, comprising 18 senior faculty members and five ex-officio members, with the PECHS Girls College being set up as an information centre.

In response to another question, he said that similar to the previous years, the BSEK will verify the marksheets submitted by applicants, in addition to preparing the merit list.

Under the National Internship Programme (NIP), new teachers were appointed in colleges, while 850 co-operative teachers were made to leave. Moreover, adhoc teachers will also be teaching, thus, filling the vacant 900 posts of regular teachers. The news
