Pune, June 9 (): This year for Std XI, the junior colleges in Pune as well as the neighbouring Pimpri Chinchwad is likely to have an allotment of 64,500 seats through the computer-assisted centralized admission process (CAP), which is 120 seats more when compared to last year.
According to deputy director of education (Pune region) Suman Shinde , Class XI CAP is scheduled to commence from June 12, with first list of seat allotment likely to be released on July 15. Shinde who heads the CAP committee said on Friday that classes will most likely begin from August 1.
The CAP is a group of education department officials which include principals and representatives of junior colleges in Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad assigned with the task of going ahead with the centralized process.
In the academic year the Aabasaheb Garware College has been decided to be the main CAP centre, whereas Fergusson College will be dealing with the collection of admission forms of students of non-SSC boards such as the CBSE, IGCSE, ICSE and the IB including others.
All admission-related issues faced by the non-SSC board students during the CAP will be handled by Fergusson College. The concerned authorities have expressed hope saying that all students who apply for Std XI seats will definitely secure admissions through the CAP.
Nearly 1,13,502 students from Pune district have cleared the Std X March 2013 examination which was declared on last Friday. However, all the students will possibly not apply for Std XI CAP as most of them might choose for post-SSC diplomas in engineering and technology or skill -oriented courses at industrial training institutes. Some might even discontinue their studies for several reasons.
As per the reports of the CAP panel, the number of candidates for Std XI admissions has been often less than the number of declared students. In the last two years, a total of 8,000 to 10,000 seats went vacant.
