As MBA courses are becoming popular among students due to its job oriented programmes, over 94, 000 aspirants in Maharashtra have applied for MBA entrance exam.

As the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) received as many as 94,832 applications, several experts have attributed the growth to its better job prospects.

Aspirants opt for CET

Following the implementation of state-held Common Entrance Test (CET), a single window for MBA admission, the need of taking multiple entrance tests has been considerably eased .

Earlier, aspirants have to take multiple tests such as Association of Indian Management Schools Test for Management Admissions and Common Management Admission Test for admission to MBA courses in the state.

Moreover, several coaching classes providing preparatory courses to aspirants have seen many students opting for CET.

“We have seen more students applying for CET this year. More students want to study in Maharashtra colleges than in previous years,” said Prasanth Nair, TIME manager, according to Indian Express.

He however observed that even if there is an increased in number of application which may indicate a rise in demand, it did not indicate a change in the management sector.

“The demand for MBA courses was at its peak around 2011 and today’s demand is not even close to what it was back then,” said Nair.

Aspirants may race for seats

As the number of applicant rapidly increased, the competition too has become tougher. Although the availability of seats is not exactly figured, it is speculated that there could be around 25,000 seats across the state.

According to DTE’s Director Dayanand Meshram, every three students will be competing for one seat.

Unlike this year’s increased in number of application, over 10,000 seats had remained vacant in the last academic session. Considering the huge proportion of seats lying vacant in many institutes over the last few years, some institutes have applied to the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) for reduction of intake capacity.

“The apex body for professional courses is likely to grant the permission to reduce intake. A final seat count will be available by April 30 when the AICTE grants Extension of Affiliation to all colleges,” said Ramesh Unnikrishnan, AICTE Western Region Director.

CBSE won’t apply its 3 Indian language plan for Class 10 Board exam till 2020

A senior official said that “even if the new plan is approved by the ministry and CBSE starts working on the scheme it would not” happen before 2019-20.

  • Why is CBSE removing its international curriculum?

In a sigh of relief for all board students and their parents, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has recently come up with a new plan (three-language formula) for Class 10 Board examination.

(Read: Why is CBSE removing its international curriculum?)

According to a new proposal, if a student is currently studying in Class 7 or above, need not worry about shifting to schools affiliated to CBSE where three-language formula is applicable.

Here’s why:

  • It is speculated that the government has decided this keeping in view the schedule of students studying in the current academic session and does not want to disturb them.

When did the proposal of three-language formula come in?

  • Last year, in December, CBSE had sent the proposed three-language formula for secondary education to Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry, clearing all the doubts over it and when the new scheme would be implemented
  • As per sources, there were differences in the existing three-language formula of CBSE and the proposed scheme:
    1. The scheme extends till Class 10
    2. It will not include foreign languages as one of the options for students.

Key notes of the new plan:

  • In the new plan, candidates are required to take up three Indian languages listed in schedule VIII of the Constitution, one of which could be English
  • The three languages would be main subjects in the Class 10 board exams
  • Also, students can study a foreign language, or a non-listed Indian language, as an additional subject, which will be non-qualifying in nature.

According to a senior HRD official, even if the new plan is approved by the ministry and CBSE starts working on the scheme it would not “happen before 2019-20”.

“When the scheme is implemented will depend on the how soon the policy is finalised. Once the policy is framed, the schools would need to be given time as under this formula a student will get the option of 22 languages, for which teachers need to be appointed,” said  CBSE official in recent TOI report.
