TheÂ online admissions to junior colleges across Maharashtra will,in all probability,start by Thursday,irrespective of whether the Supreme Court order goes in favour of the government or against it. Â Online admissions have been stalled thanks to a pitched court battle between the state government and ICSE parents over the contentious best-five policy. The Supreme Court order should be out in a day or two. After that theÂ online admissions process will be started immediately.
There has never been such a long delay inÂ Â junior college admissions process in the past. The state education department should be ready with two plans,one that can be executed if the SC order is in favour of the government and a second in case the apex court upholds the Bombay high court order rejecting the state governments best-five formula. Strategy will save further delay inÂ junior college admissions.
But if the SC scraps the best five policy,the government may have to reprint over 15 lakh SSC marksheets,as the overall percentage on the current marksheets are calculated based on the best five subjects.There are chances that the SSC board has already reprinted the marksheets. The SSC board would not confirm the matter.
The government introduced its best-five policy for SSC students seeking admission toÂ junior college, whereby the marks in the best five subjects alone were counted for the final percentage. For ICSE students, however, scores in all seven subjects will be counted. ICSE parents challenged the decision in the HC and won the case. The government has appealed against the verdict in the apex court. The SC order is keenly awaited by students.
