Challenge in front of students
1. Where admission is based on merit, what will happen?
• Ajoy Ghatak, a former professor and educationist at IIT Delhi, said the decision would not have a direct impact on the careers of students preparing for exams like ZEE, ZEE Advance and NIT, as the admission of these students is based on entrance exams.
They say that for those who are preparing for courses like BSc (Hons), BA (Hons) or Economics (Hons), there will be a challenge. Because most of the institutes give admission in this course on the basis of merit.
Professor Ghatak said that for example, in an institute like Delhi University, the cutoff increases every year. There is reaching 99% cut-off. If a student who has done Std. 12 this year has thought of taking admission in a college of DU, what will they do? That is a big question.
2. What will happen to those who are giving Std. 12 examination for the second time?
Adi Kushna, who is studying in 11th standard in Noida, said that now there will be trouble for students who had to decide their career direction based on marks. Who were already preparing for a competitive exam. They don’t matter much.
