Now, Maths no bar to polytechnic course admissions
Now a good news for HSC streams who dreamt about pursuing engineering! HSC students hailing form science stream without Maths at 10+2 level will now be able to take a step further and pursue a career in engineering and technology industry in polytechnic institutes in Maharashtra.
The State Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) has decided to grant “Lateral” admissions to these students in the second year directly of post-SSC Diploma courses from academic year 2015-16. Mahesh Shivankar, DTE Joint Director, Aurangabad region, quoted that this move will entice and support a large number of HSC students who had given up hope desperately.
The initiation for sale of application kit for the lateral (second-year) admissions for 300 diploma courses will begin from Tuesday, 23rd June, 2015.
Maharashtra boasts of 390 polytechnic institutes with an intake capacity of nearly 1.8 lakh students, and an estimated 20% of these seats, i.e. nearly 36,000 seats are made available for lateral admissions.
DTE has designed a 25% reservation from the following categories:
- HSC (science)
- HSC (bifocal)
- HSC (MCVC)
Shivankar also updated that there would be an additional examination conducted for students who didn’t pass their 10+2 with Maths. Balasaheb Pawar, principal of Sharadchandraji Pawar Polytechnic College, Aurangabad, welcomed this idea with open arms and provided DTE decision a boost up in some significant way.
