Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Directorate of Higher Education (DHE)’s centralized online counselling for admission in teacher education courses, especially BEd course, is flawed.
Despite additional round of counselling, colleges fear that many seats will still remain vacant as all qualified students are not allocated seats. They have urged DHE to release issue allotment list along with waiting list.
Sai Baba College chairman Kamal Irani said that DHE issues allotment list on basis of students marks in qualifying marks.
“It sounds perfectly okay. But the technical issue in this problem is not address. Students, whose name feature in admission list, if are not allocated seats in their area of preferred colleges then they do not report to the allocated colleges for confirmation of admission. And this happens at large scale so despite conduct of three round of counseling, 70 per cent seats in BEd colleges in the state remained vacant and DHE had to grant an additional round for fill the vacancies,” he explained.
Irani stated that the additional round will also fail to fill all seats. “Till waiting list is released, the problem will continue,” he said.
Indore Mahavidyalaya chairman Girdhar Nagar stated that the current system is based on student-driven choice. It should have been eligibility based. “If the student is eligible, his/her name should be in the waiting list so that he/she can replace the one opting out. That’s the solution to flawed system,” he added.
DHE is going to release common merit list students registered for additional round of counselling for teacher education courses on Wednesday. The final merit list and allotment letters will be released on October 19. Students will be required to pay 50 per cent of course fee online for confirmation of admission from October 21 to October 25.
Remaining 50 per cent of the student will have to pay when colleges will resume classes.
