Ramakrishna said, “Details of the registration process and subsequent procedure are available on the BIE website, i.e. https://bie.ap.gov.in Online Admission 2021-22 (APOASIS) as a user manual.”
The board stressed that registration for this course would be completely online for all, eliminating the need for pens, paper and physical forms.
Ramakrishna, a senior official of the Indian Revenue Service (IRS), said, “All students and parents are informed that the registration process for the two-year intermediate course will be entirely for all classes and for all quotas.”
From this academic year, reservations will also apply to intermediate admissions for students of Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes in all colleges, after decades of neglecting them together.
“The seats will be filled as per the rules of reservation including quota for girls,” she said.
The Secretary also provided flexibility for inter-group change by providing sliding facilities.
To make it easier for students to enroll online, the board has provided helpline centers at the district and college levels, and advised students to take advantage of these facilities.
Similarly, students and parents can also clarify admission related issues on toll free number 1800 274 9868 twenty four hours.
Aiming to eradicate decades of widespread abuse and arbitrary commercialization of intermediate education in the state, the board has introduced online admissions only from this academic year.
Since many corporate junior colleges have illegally charged fees for unauthorized offline admissions for the current academic year, Ramakrishna recently directed those colleges to refund the students immediately.
A number of corporate colleges have illegally admitted first-year students and have even issued online admission notices to conduct classes online without board permission, which only happened on Tuesday evening.
Ramakrishna, however, made it clear that the board is not responsible for those who have already taken this illegal admission and paid the college fees.
He directed RIOs across the state to identify faulty colleges and warned of drastic measures including dissatisfaction.
