Six colleges fail to get any student this year

Six colleges fail to get any student this year

Over 3 lakh students who passed the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent examinations this year did not take admission to any college-level educational institutions. Meanwhile, sources at the inter-education board coordination subcommittee, led by Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Dhaka, said they would give another chance to the students who did not apply for college admission.

This process of online admission would begin very soon so that the students can pursue college level education.

Meanwhile, no student has selected at least six colleges, so far, during the online admission process that ended on June 30.

Education board sources said they would get detail information of how many students have taken admission to which colleges, and also which colleges did not get any student so far.

This year, a total of 1,576,104 students passed SSC and equivalent examinations under the 10 education boards.

Of them, 1,309,475  students applied for online admission in a total of 16,406 government and non-government educational institutions.

A total of 1,228,015 applicants were selected for college admission, which means 81,460 students were not selected for admission to the colleges.

As 1,575,104 students passed SSC and equivalent examinations this year and 1,228,015 students have been selected for college admission, it means 348,089 students have dropped out from education.

The total figure of students who have taken admission to their respective colleges can be known after July 5, as college authorities would have to inform the matter to the board.

The Dhaka board authority, on June 30, requested the college authorities to inform the respective boards, online, about how many students have taken admission in their educational institutions by July 5.

Board sources said the students who have not been selected or did not take admission to the colleges will get another chance to take

admission soon. “We have already requested the education ministry to hold another round of college admissions online. There are sufficient seats but many students did not take admission. There will be no manual admission. All formalities will be completed online,” college inspector of the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Dhaka, Prof. Harun Or Rashid, told The Independent yesterday.

“We want every student to take admission to the college. But, generally, it does not happen. Some students do not continue education because they have to take up jobs or for other reasons,” he added.

Recently, education minister Nurul Islam Nahid at a programme of National Curriculum and Textbook Board (NCTB) in the capital said, “Generally, it is seen that all students don’t take admission in colleges. Some are left out. This is not the case of Bangladesh only. It also happens in other countries.”

About the issue of zero admission in six colleges, Harun Or Rashid said, “During the admission process, no student selected these six colleges. These colleges are not under Dhaka Education Board. We have sought the names of the colleges.”

“We would be able to know how many students have taken admission to which colleges, after July 5. Within this time, all colleges will inform the respective boards how many students have taken admission in the respective colleges and how many colleges did not get any student,” he added.

He also said that they will also issue show-cause notices to the authorities of the six colleges to explain why no student has taken admission to their colleges.

“If we don’t get any satisfactory answer from the colleges, we would take actions as per rules and regulations,” he added.

Asked why some colleges did not get any application or have got only a handful of applications, he said, “Owing to the online admission facilities, a student can easily select his/her preferred colleges without any hassle. They can select the best colleges.”

“If a college fails to provide better education and teaching environment, the students don’t like to apply for admission there. Then the colleges fail to draw huge number of student,” he added.

“The online process of admission is helping the students to select the best colleges and it is helping the education boards and colleges to remain free of any undue pressure to admit students,” he added.

“Every year, the online system is being improved. If a college wants to sustain its position, it has to ensure better education with quality teachers and teaching environment,” he added.
