Thiruvananthapuram: Admission to higher secondary Plus-One courses is all set to commence in Kerala. The notification in this regard will be out on Wednesday, July 6.
Students could submit online applications from 7 July onwards, General Education Minister V Sivankutty said.
In the previous years, the admission process was delayed as additional batches were allowed only later. Now, additional batches in the districts that report shortage of Plus-One seats is likely to be allowed in advance. Temporary batches, if required, would be allowed later.
Eligible applicants will continue to receive bonus points as in the past. Bonus points and grace marks awarded for exemplary perfomances in extracurricular activities are added to the total marks in the qualifying Class-10 final examintaion.
Points would be allowed for students who show excellence in extracurricular activities including swimming.
Earlier it was reported that the bonus point system will be scrapped.
The approval of the Council of Ministers would be sought in these matters if required. The meeting of the council of ministers will be held on Wednesday.
The authorities haven’t been able to begin the Plus-One admission process, even three weeks after the publication of the Secondary School Leaving Certificate Examination results, as decisions about a number of matters, including bonus points, haven’t been finalised.
