Madhya Pradesh students with 45% secure an engineering seat

Published On: 11 Jul 2012

In Madhya Pradesh securing admissions in undergraduate colleges is more difficult than getting a seat in an engineering college. This may sound ironic but is a fact. Here students qualifying their class XII board exams with just 45% marks can easily obtain admission in engineering colleges while those with 75% score have to struggle for getting a seat in undergraduate colleges.

For instance, the higher education department recently introduced online admission process where many students who scored 75% could not secure admission in their desired undergraduate colleges while nearly 20,000 candidates who even did not appear for PET (pre-engineering test) in 2011 obtained admissions in engineering colleges with only 45% marks in class 12 board exams.

The same trend followed this year also in engineering colleges. This year about 55,000 candidates have applied till now in the engineering colleges after the declaration of PET Results. Of these, 40,000 candidates have filled their choices for 95,000 engineering seats available in different colleges of Madhya Pradesh (MP).

Sources from DTE (directorate of technical education) policy revealed that this year also large numbers of seats are expected to go vacant after the counseling process is over. After counseling gets finished, students with 45% marks in Class XII board exam, who did not even take the PET, would be given admission.

As per the DTE officials, admission on the basis of class XII scores was allowed to fill up the large number of vacant seats in engineering colleges.

Engineering colleges expressed that PET has lost its importance with students getting admission on the basis of class 12 marks and the best way to solve this problem is to bring in place a national level common entrance test.

This will produce quality engineers as students will have to crack a competitive exam for seeking admission to engineering college. The states which lack their own entrance test allow admissions on the basis of AIEEE score.

As per DTE, in 2011 62000 candidates secured admission in the engineering colleges in MP and 24,000 seats went vacant. Interestingly, Of the 62000 students, only 20,000 obtained admission in various engineering colleges either through class XII marks or even after securing zero marks in PET.
