Thiruvananthapuram: Despite scoring A+ grade in all subjects in the SSLC exam, students could not secure admission to their favourite subjects and schools.
Compared to the previous year, 79,412 more students scored A+ in all subjects out of 4,19,651 who secured eligibility for higher studies.
Admission was delayed due to lagging of the website that published the allotment.
Students from CBSE and other syllabi are worried about the situation. They are normally considered for supplementary allotment.
The Government decided against permitting new batches in the schools. The minister said that increasing seats will ensure admissions for all. Above this, seats will be increased in unaided schools as well, V Sivankutty said.
Admission on first allotment will continue on September 25, 29 and October 1. The second allotment will be published on October 7.
