Insufficient Enrollment Time: Calcutta University Colleges | Calcutta News
The university has set a November 30 deadline for colleges to upload the scanned and self-certified copies of student testimonials and other information to its website.
This year, the entire registration process for admissions is happening online, due to the pandemic. The university has implemented a new portal for college directors to upload all registration related data and certificates and handed over a detailed list of information the university needs for the registration process.
However, most principals felt that the time allocated was insufficient.
âThe university issued the enrollment notification on November 13, a Friday. Since the list of requirements is long, we have to give the students at least 7-10 days to provide all the information and send us the certificates, âsaid the principal of a college in North Kolkata, who did not wished to be named.
âWe have to consider that many students stay in remote areas where Internet connectivity and the availability of a scanner can be big issues. Once we have received all the mails, we need to extract the data and make the excel sheet and send it to the university. The university must review the deadline, âhe added.
As soon as the university notified the dates, most colleges approached the students through their websites and also contacted them on their cellphones, looking for the scanned copies of the certificates, which include grade sheets for Classes X and XII. , a copy of the application form downloaded from the college portal, photo, signature, proof of birth, proof of address and caste, BPL certificates and disabled person if applicable.
The last date to submit the documents to Lady Brabourne College and New Alipore College was Thursday, while that for Maulana Azad College was November 24. The last date to submit details to Gokhale Memorial Girls’ College is November 27 at midnight.
“After gaining admission, many applicants do not regularly follow the college website, which is why we have also sent messages to the registered cell phone numbers of the students,” said the head of a college in the south of Kolkata.
