Palakkad: Students are on the edge as the admission season progresses. Those interested in under-graduation studies outside their states are on the run to get hold of migration certificates. In Kerala the delay in issuing the migration certificates of those who have just passed higher secondary Plus-Two (or Class 12) may affect their prospects to join universities outside the state.
Even though the despatch of migration certificates has begun from the Directorate of Higher Secondary Education in Thiruvananthapuram, they are yet to reach schools.
Many students who pass Plus-Two often choose universities and colleges outside the state for their higher studies. The course certificate and the migration certificate are required to join new universities.
Many students fear their timely admissions could be affected now as they were not able to produce the migration certificate even after paying the fees.
Some students and parents complained that no one picked up the phone even though they called the Directorate of Higher Secondary Education. The teachers too said that they didn’t get a proper answer when they enquired at the Directorate.
Last year, the migration certificates were delivered schools along with the course certificates. Earlier, migration certificates were given only to those who applied for them.
However, the schools are not yet informed about the way in which the certificates would be distributed this year.
Compartmental certificate too delayed
Complaints are rife that the compartmental certificates of those who wrote the exams this year after they failed last year too haven’t reached the schools yet. These students who have already lost one year need these certificates to join a new course at least this year.
