Thiruvananthapuram: The trial allotment for Plus-One admission in Kerala has been extended by one day in response to demands from students, State Education Minister V Sivankutty announced on Sunday.
The allotment will be held until 5 pm on Monday, August 1.
The candidates who intend to make any changes or edit any details in the Plus-One applications have to log into www.admission.dge.kerala.gov.in. They have to click on the Edit Application link in the candidate login page to make the changes and then submit the confirmation.
Around 1,76076 applicants had checked the Plus-One trial allotment list and 47,395 students have made changes in their application until Saturday noon. However, among the total 4.71 lakh applicants, around 3 lakh are still to check the allotment list and make the changes if any.
As reported earlier the trial allotment was published on Friday morning, but the website crashed soon as thousands of applicants logged in at the same time. The authorities fixed the issues and the website was up only by Saturday noon.
What could be edited
Details about caste reservation, information about bonus points and details about the extra-curricular activities that would be considered for tie-breaker could be edited. Besides, the mistakes regarding details about the panchayat or the taluk where the candidate lives too could be corrected. Mistakes made while entering the caste and category details too must be corrected. Otherwise, the candidates may not be able to secure the admission even if they get the allotment.
The prospectus has listed the certificates that are required to validate the details. These details could in fact influence the allotment status of the students. The candidates must note that the allotment would be cancelled if these certificates aren’t produced.
Internet cafes likely shut
Those who do not have computers/internet connectivity at home has to rely on Akshaya centres or internet cafes to make changes in the application. However, many are worried that they would miss their chance as these centres might not be open on Sunday. Even though there are help desks at the High Schools and Higher Secondary Schools, they won't be open on Sunday.
10% seats wouldn’t be merged in general merit
The General Education Department informed that the first allotment list would be published by skipping the 10% community quota seats as the government will appeal the High Court verdict to merge these seats in the General Merit category.
