Admissions begin in St Joseph College

Karachi, Aug 10: The admission process for first-year classes of the denationalised St Joseph College for Women started on August 7, despite the fact that most students have not received their mark sheets. About 121 forms have been given to those students who produced their original mark sheets. The new academic session is slated to begin on September 1.

On the third day of admission, about 35 students of the science group from the Federal and Aga Khan Board collected forms at Rs50, while the government-run city colleges charged Rs100 for the forms.

Sister Mary Emily FC (Filia Crucisi Daughter of the Cross), while talking to The News in her office, said that the original marks sheet is mandatory for students at the time of the collection of admission forms.

When told that students of the Matric board science group could not produce original marks sheet as the board has delayed its issuance, owing to the internal mess caused after the SSC Part II science result, she said that the college administration is not unreasonable and will extend the admission date.

As per college notification that was displayed in the premises, forms will be collected by August 20 at the very latest, which she said has already been extended. Earlier it was scheduled for August 16.

Notices were also displayed at the boards which said that admissions for the science group will be closed at 75 per cent and that too will be varied depending on the merit of the student.

The college strictly adheres to its rule formulated by the management committee, saying that students who are unable to present their original marks sheet, will not be issued forms.

With regard to the Cambridge students whose results were announced on Thursday, Sister Emily said that the equivalence certificate (EC) is essential during the submission and placement of forms. The EC is a certificate authorised by its respective colleges.

Vice Principal Miss Mary Caleb, who was also present, told Sister Emily that it would take another two months for students of Cambridge to provide EC, to which she said that the college is willing to wait, as it is a requirement that students should fulfill all criteria,

According to Sister Emily, last year about 125 Cambridge students were entertained. She also disclosed that a separate date for Cambridge students would be announced soon.

In all, 23 students of the general group and 64 of Commerce applied for admission in first-year, while 19 forms were returned after duly completing forms and other requirements, said the coordinator Miss Lena D'Souza. The news
