For fine arts in the same college, a student has to score %% this year, which is slightly lower than last year’s .4..4%. Admission to Symbiosis College in the same stream closed at 93.4%, down from 96.6% last year.
The city’s top commercial colleges, BMCC and Symbiosis, have commanded 95.2% and 91% this year, respectively. Last year, it was 96.4% and 94.2%, respectively.
The principals said the low-scoring students in the Vidarbha-Marathwada region applied to Pune colleges in addition to the Covid-1 situation and the cut-off number could be due to financial constraints due to the epidemic.
The declining cut-off marks in the merit list also disproved the notion that, since the board exams were canceled, students were randomly assigned higher grades in the tenth grade using internal assessment formulas.
Seema Purohit, principal of Brihan Maharashtra College of Commerce, said cut-off marks across the stream have been reduced in colleges in the city this year.
“We will know more if there is an actual admission, but there is a chance that students from Marathwada and Vidarbha areas have chosen a college near their home instead of Pune because of the Kovid-1 situation in the city,” he said.
He said -40-55% students in BMCC have scored very high in this region and many students in Latur region, which has resulted in an increase in the number of overall cut-offs.
The second reason may be the deep financial crisis brought on by the epidemic that most families in rural areas face. Purahit added, “This will prevent them from sending their children to Pune College because the cost is high here.”
Medha Sinarkar, principal of Laxmanarao Apte Prasala, said she did not understand the incident, a sentiment echoed by many other academics.
Due to the fact that many students scored higher in the tenth grade, the increase in cut-off marks should have reflected FYJC admissions. It’s surprising that it didn’t happen, he added.
“As the number of cut-offs in our science stream increases, parents prefer a school-like environment for their children, especially at this uncertain time. We also follow the school pattern at FYJC, which means walking around, compulsory attendance, finishing your classwork and homework. Our online classes are also rigorous and this is an additional reason for students and parents to choose our school, ”said Sinarkar.
Hrishikesh Somen, principal of Symbiosis College of Arts and Commerce, said that while the merit list was confusing, it also proved that there were no random prizes in the tenth grade.
“Based on the internal numbers obtained by 10th and 10th class students. While it’s true that more students have passed tenth this year than last year, perhaps the top scorers have been rational. Also, there is an opportunity for higher students to choose Diploma / ITI course among others.
