Common Adm. System unplugged, effective from 2012

Common Adm. System effective from 2012
From next year i.e. 2012, students dont have to stand in queues for collecting Pre-University (PU) application forms and prospectuses. Experts believe that even the students will be spared of paying heavy amounts for forms. All this will be possible with implementation of Common Admission System for all PU Colleges. The Common Admission system is suppose to begin from 2012. The new system will allow the pass-outs to pick the college and the combination of their choice sitting at home.

Under this system, a single application form will be available for all types of colleges — government, aided and unaided. This form will be downloadable for free, from the department of PU education website. Every candidate will get to make a choice of 30 courses/colleges, based on which college-wise merit list would be drawn up.

There will be a tie up with BangaloreOne and KarnatakaOne centres, so that the candidates can submit their filled-in forms. This will ensure transparency in admissions, so that in unaided colleges admissions are done on merit-cum-reservation basis. To stop private colleges from fleecing students, the department will come out with city-wise prospectus with details of all colleges.

From next year, it is believed that no college will sell prospectus,as the details will be available online, for free. Last year, the proposal faced opposition from the college managements, especially in Bangalore.
