In Assam, the percentage of students passing board exams has increased significantly. The government is doing everything it can to help those students. In addition, the bulk of college places will be offered to AHSEC students.
According to reports, the Assam Directorate of higher education has urged universities in the state to set aside a whopping 75% of seats for AHSEC graduates. As a result, the number of seats available on other boards will be drastically reduced.
Only 25% of places will be available for students who have graduated from other boards, including the CBSE.
According to a report in the TOI, the directorate wants to give students who passed the state boards for Class XII this year with extremely high pass percentages under the statistical formula-based grading some relief.
The latest letter from the director of higher education (DHE), Dharma Kanta Mili, to state universities and government-run colleges stated, "The Govt. has decided that 75 percent of seats in Degree Courses of the Govt. and Provincialized Colleges shall be reserved for the students of AHSEC and hence you are requested to take necessary action accordingly."
“The Government, through the Education Department, has decided to increase the seating capacity of U.G. level courses in the institutions by 20%, and as a result, you are requested to meet the increase by considering admission for day and evening shifts,” the letter stated.
