Students, parents protest against lack of seats in Plus One courses in Kerala, at Koduvally, Kozhikode | Screengrab
Kozhikode: A group of students organised a protest against the Kerala government over Plus One admissions. The aspirants held a mock class in front of Koduvally bus stand in Kozhikode district.
“I applied to science courses in almost 25 schools. I did not get admission. My certificate says I am eligible for higher studies. I must get a seat,” a protestor told Mathrubhumi News.
Parents acted as teachers in the protest.
Students will be ousted from the system by October 21 when the supplementary allotment is released, a parent said. The protestors have also filed a complaint to MLA M K Muneer.
Several students who scored A+ in all subjects did not secure admission, another protestor said.
Reports suggest that many students could not secure a seat in the plus one allotments. However, the government keeps assuring that seats for all students are available.
