Sub: Online admissions for the Academic Session 2018-19 to all UG & PG Courses
The result of the West Bengal Higher Secondary Examination 2018 is expected to be published shortly. This Department has received queries from different colleges of the state regarding the admission modalities to be followed by them for the ensuing academic session 2018-19.
It may be recalled that since academic session i.e. 2015-16, admissions to all Under Graduate and Post Graduate courses (Honours and General) in the State-funded higher education institutions in West Bengal (except institutions recognized as minority institutions) were made through online, merit based system in order to render the admissions more transparent, hassle-free and convenient for the students.
Considering the success achieved, and in view of the fact that the requisite infrastructure for the online admissions (Stand-alone mode) system has already been put in place in the State’s higher education institutions, the Governor has been pleased to say that, all the procedural and administrative modalities which were stipulated for online admissions (Stand-alone mode) for the last academic session 2017-18 shall be followed in toto for the ensuing academic session 2018-19.
No fund/ Grant-in-aid will be given for online admissions in this ensuing academic 2018-19.
Vice-Chancellors of all State-aided Universities are requested to kindly take urgent necessary action in this regard, including issuing suitable instructions to all the affiliated institutions for compliance of the above.
This advisory does not apply to admission to teacher training courses such as B.Ed., B.P.Ed., M.Ed., or M.P.Ed. etc., for which a separate G.O. has been issued vide, 488-Edn(CS)/10M-20/2015, dated. 25-04-2018.
