Pune, 17th July 2022: A group of organizations have filed a complaint with Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) against Brihan Maharashtra College of Commerce (BMCC) for taking admissions on the basis of 10th class marks and entrance exam marks in the first year admission process of degree.
The admission process for the first year of graduation started when the state board declared the 12th result. However, as the results of CBSE and other boards have not been announced, colleges and universities have decided to complete the admission process by reserving seats for the students of other boards. Also, the university also expressed its readiness to approve 10 percent additional seats to the colleges as per requirement.
However, as the result of CBSE has not been announced, a complaint was filed with the university objecting to the admission process conducted by BMCC on the basis of 10th marks and entrance exam marks.
NCP’s Adv. Suresh Khurpe said, “The eligibility for first year degree course is 12th pass. But BMCC is granting admission on the basis of 10th marks and entrance exam marks.”
However, the BMCC has clarified that the admission process was implemented on the basis of merit. “The admission process in the college is conducted on the basis of the entrance examination. It carries a weightage of 60 marks for entrance exam, 20 marks for 10th and 20 marks for 12th. Since the CBSE 12th result has not been announced this year, 40 marks are being given for the 10th result and 60 marks for the entrance exam. The admission process was conducted on the basis of merit only. Affidavits regarding provisional admission have been taken from CBSE students”, said Dr Seema Purohit, Principal, BMCC.
Meanwhile, SPPU pro-Vice Chancellor Dr Sanjeev Sonawane said that according to UGC guidelines, 10th marks cannot be considered for first year admission to degree courses. Therefore, inquiries have been made to the concerned principal and admission committee members regarding the admission process at BMCC. Further action will be taken after getting clarity on this from them.
