Kozhikode: The shortage of Plus One batches in the Malabar region will have an adverse impact on student admissions this year. Even if the number of seats increased by 30 per cent, 18,258 students who cleared the SSLC examination in Malabar cannot get admission here.

In 2023, as many as 2,59,839 students passed the SSLC examination in the region. According to the Malabar Education Movement (MEM), at least 55,611 students in the region will be left out after the completion of admissions to Plus One, vocational higher secondary and polytechnic.

Government is likely to increase seats. However, MEM claimed that it is a
temporary solution and the region has been facing the issue for a long time. 283 new higher secondary batches are required to ensure admissions for all students, MEM noted.

MEM alleged that the admission procedures in the state began without releasing the Prof V Karthikeyan committee report. The committee was constituted to solve the higher secondary admission crisis. MEM also urged the government to publish the report soon and implement its recommendations.
