The Department of Pre-University Education (Karnataka) proposed a Common Online Admission System for the colleges in the cities of Bangalore, Mysore, Mangalore, Belgaum, Gulbarga, Hubli-Dharwad, Davangere, Tumkur and Shimoga for the I year PUC admissions from the academic year 2012.
The proposal stated that the Common Online Admission process will enable transparency in the admission system by ensuring that all students who passed SSLC examination get a fair and equal opportunity to get admission in any college of their choice based on their individual merit.
Presently CBSE and ICSE students have a separate 5% of the overall seats reserved in all colleges. As and when the CBSE and ICSE results are declared the same system of online admission will be extended to them also by preparing a separate merit list. This would help these students as they too suffer from all the inherent deficiencies of the existing admission processes. The only reason as to why they cannot be integrated with the existing system is that there is a difference between the timings of declaration of results between the SSLC, the CBSE and the ICSE Boards.
Primary objectives of online admission process
To empower students and parents by ensuring access to information on infrastructure, teaching resources and seats available in each college, access to apply as per their choice and merit, equal opportunity, transparent allotment with all details available in the public domain. To make the entire process stress free for parents and students.
To empower colleges by ensuring transparency in applications and allotment of seats. Choice of colleges is a democratic choice exercised by the students.
To avoid a student from physically going filling and submitting applications for 10-12 college standing in long serpentine queues.
