Indore (Madhya Pradesh): The Department of Higher Education (DHE) has released the final seat allocation list for the BEd course, giving students who are allocated a place four days to report to the relevant college for confirmation of admission.
“Admission will not be confirmed until the student has assigned a seat in the college report to that college and submitted the fee. The deadline for fee submission is June 25,” said Additional Director of Indore Division (Higher Education), Dr. Suresh Silawat.
Colleges offering BEd courses are seeing fewer admissions, although centralized online counseling enrollment numbers for the two-year program were very promising this year.
Nearly 59% of seats are still vacant in BEd colleges in Indore after two rounds of online advice.
Now that the third round slate is also out, BEd college principals are crunching their numbers and praying for students to show up for confirmation of admission.
After two rounds of counseling, the colleges registered only 1483 admissions against 3600 vacancies in 34 colleges in Indore.
This means that only 41% of students have been admitted and there are still 2117 vacancies in colleges here.
BEd colleges held the DHE responsible for poor admissions. They said the DHE does not share contact details of students who are allocated places at their colleges, due to which allocations cannot be converted into admissions.
“If we had provided contact details, we would have approached the students to complete the admission formalities. This will help increase the admission percentage, but DHE, as always, has not shared student phone numbers,” Comp-feeders College President Awadhesh Dave said.
Colleges require more counseling sessions
Devi Ahilya Private Education College Association Chairman Abhay Pandey said they have applied to DHE for two more rounds of centralized councils as nearly 60% of seats are still vacant in colleges in Indore .
“If it is the BEd admission requirement in the state educational center, the admission situation in other districts can be easily anticipated,” Annie Besant College Principal Mohit Yadav said. He also said that their association would meet with Minister of Higher Education Mohan Yadav if needed.
