College admissions in TN only after July 31: Minister – Times of India

CHENNAI: Tamil Nadu Higher Education Minister K. Ponmoudi said Monday that admission to public / supported / private colleges will not begin until July 31, following the announcement of the State Council’s CBSE and Tamil Nadu Class XII results, which are expected by that date.

Ponmudi said the government has become aware of cases where some private colleges have already started admissions, adding that strict measures will be taken if any college resorts to such admissions before the results of the class XII exams are known.

He said colleges can only admit students on the basis of grade XII exams.

Colleges cannot conduct entrance exams to admit students pending results, he said.

The minister added that the Supreme Court has instructed CBSE to deliver Class XII results by July 31, and the state government is also developing a way to mark students through the state council.

“We have to take into account the results of the CBSE students. The Chief Minister has announced the methodology for calculating grades for grade XII, and this process will be completed by 31 July. Only then can colleges start the admissions process, ”Ponmudi said. …

The minister added that college admissions could begin after August 1.

The Minister of Higher Education, however, stated that this rule would not apply to polytechnic colleges, as admission to these institutes is based on grade IX grades.

In Tamil Nadu, admission to the polytechnic courses has already begun. According to the assessment method announced by the state government, grade X exams will be weighted 50 percent, while grade XI grades will be weighted 20 percent. The government has announced a 30 percent weighting for internal grading and class XII practical exams.

The minister also said that there is no link between the cancellation of MPhil courses by the University of Madras and the National Education Policy for 2020.

He said there was a split among faculty and students about the need for a master’s degree, adding that some universities had canceled it.
