The institutes that take admissions of students based on their performance in national-level entrance examinations like JEE or state-level admission tests, this provisional admission policy will only be applicable to them.
The All India Council of Technical Education announced that Institutes need not refuse admission to students whose class 12 results are yet to be announced. These students comprise of CBSE private category candidates, second compartment students. Nevertheless, students have to make sure by signing an undertaking that they will anyhow submit their class 12 scores within one week of result declaration.
“The provision is only applicable for admissions that are being done on the basis of students’ performance in national-level entrance exams such as JEE or state-level admission tests,” stated Rajive Kumar, member secretary, AICTE.
It is not for the first time that the council has granted provisional admissions. This exception was announced last year for the MBA admissions at the time when several universities were unable to proclaim undergraduate (UG) results.
“We are facing an unprecedented situation and no method would work foolproof, but we need to devise strategies that minimize students’ loss,” added Rajive Kumar.
Even though the students are getting provisional admission, they are required to meet certain course specific eligibility criteria. Once the class 12 results are declared, and the students fails to score minimum passing marks, his/her admission will inevitably be cancelled.
