Exams, Students and Un-approved colleges!!

Yet another system controversy, the news is quite disturbing …not sure who actually will face the music…

Three weeks before the second-year PU examinations commence, the department of pre-university education (DPE) has dropped a bombshell. It will file criminal cases against unapproved colleges, which approach the department to allow its students to appear for the exams starting March 29.

Last week, the Karnataka HC upheld the decision of the department to take action against erring colleges. Even those colleges that gave an undertaking promising to get the approval within a year are back, pleading with the department to allow their students to take exams.

What do we expect from the students who got admitted into such colleges? It’s time for them to study or get further dose of a stressful fact that Govt will not allow them to take up the exam. What seems their fault is that they got into an institution which was not authorized? Who is to be blamed for this, is it the student who are dying to learn and opt for any opportunity and our system wakes up just before the exams.

Logically these issues should be taken care at the time when students get enrolled into such colleges, simply put let PU start enrolling the students at the time when these admissions take place and work out with colleges well in advance to let the student know if the college is ‘Approved’ or not.

Proactive measures like opening a registration desk during admission time at all PU centers / offices to tell the students to enroll themselves directly with PU and collect details of colleges these students have enrolled to verify the sanctity of approvals claimed by the colleges, this measure will be helpful for students who’s entire career is at stake if they land up in ‘un-approved’ colleges and ease the pressure worked on them in such situations…

    Corruption is the root cause for this. I am sure someone somewhere would have ‘approved’ this college at the time it was established. Now the parties have changed and the new administration also wants to ‘approve’ it. Don’t worry, things will get sorted out very soon.
