Silchar: The growing number of students each year has created the serious problem of accommodation. Along with that is also the number of successful candidates in various higher secondary streams due to liberal marking.
There is also a sort of competition among examination conducting bodies of the states and the centre to declare results, as if it were, to beat one another. The gradation system has further added to the liberal marking. The cumulative effect is more passed and less failed.
After the admission process in colleges has come to an end by July and classes have begun from the first week of August, the results of compartmental examinations of 2018 of higher secondary streams in arts, science and commerce have been walled up. The successful candidates are now put in a fix as no colleges in the town have seats left to accommodate them. Where would they go? What would be their fate? Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), northeast unit, finding no way out has submitted a petition to the Deputy Commissioner of Cachar for consideration of the cases of these students.
The representation submitted on Wednesday stated that the students who came out successful in the just concluded compartmental examination have unsuccessfully knocked at the doors of different colleges. The reply from the college authority has been quite in the negative. As Tamajit Das, secretary, ABVP Silchar unit, said if the students do not get admitted in any college, they will lose one precious year of their academic career. The Deputy Commissioner of Cachar has been urged upon to exercise his authority with the college administration in order to ensure that the students left in the lurch are accommodated.
