Thousands of private students both from the State Board and Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), who recently write the exams, are waiting for results to apply for provisional courses in Higher Educational Institutions (HEI).
However, the exams were cancelled for regular Class 12 students and their marks were calculated from previous exams. Following several requests from the private candidates that they could not apply for technical courses due to non-availability of mark sheets, AICTE member secretary, Rajive Kumar said that it was directed that those students seeking admission in higher studies, whose results are not declared by the CBSE and State Board for private and second compartment candidates, should be admitted on a provisional basis in their institutes and universities.
"An undertaking should be obtained from such provisionally admitted students that he/she shall submit their results within one week from the declaration of results to the respective institution. Failing which the provisional admission of the student shall stand cancelled," he said.
The AICTE secretary also said "As such, all the heads of universities, deemed to be universities and institutions were requested to implement the council's order and display it on their notice boards and website with immediate effect".
In Tamil Nadu, more than 35,000 private candidates, who had appeared for Class 12 board exams, have been waiting for the results. The Class 12 supplement exams were held from August 6 to August 19 here.
A senior official from the Higher Education Department said according to the AICTE notification, the required modification would be done in the admissions to all the technical courses in the State.
