8,000 forms sold on first day: College admissions

KARACHI, Aug 7: The process of admissions to city colleges started on Monday with the sale of 8,000 forms issued by the Centralised Admission Policy (CAP) Committee, it was learnt officially.

The process is scheduled to conclude by Aug 21, the last date for submission of duly filled forms with the designated bank branches. However, this date could be extended if the Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) delays the issuance of consolidated marks sheets of the SSC.

The 41 designated branches of the Habib Bank witnessed significant turnout of male and female students on the first day of the issuance of admission forms. Official sources in the CAP Committee said that over 8,000 students received forms on Monday while over 90,000 students were expected to apply for admissions to city colleges.

Talking to us, Dr Rafiq Ahmed Siddiqui, director colleges and chairman of the CAP Committee, said that the two per cent grace marks included in the students' marks sheets following the orders of the Sindh governor, the controlling authority, would be duly counted in the admission process.

"We do not count the grace marks, which are given to some students only to improve their grades etc but this is an order by the Sindh governor and would be duly included in the process," said Dr Siddiqui.

After submission of the forms their computerized evaluation for placement would be carried out. The CAP has also set up 41 information centers where senior education officials, besides CAP committee members, would be available to guide the admission seekers and their parents about the entire procedure.

The CAP committee has asked students who passed their matriculation from the boards other than the BSEK to submit admission forms either to Karsaz or Mansfield Saddar branch of the Habib Bank to avoid any delay that might occur in the process of sorting of cases and conversion of their marks to the standards set by the BSEK.

There are 118 colleges and 32 higher secondary schools functioning in the city. Out of them 55 colleges and 15 higher secondary schools are for male and the rest for female students. Dawn
