Three months have passed since the declaration of the CBSE board class X results, but the city students are yet to receive a hard copy of their migration certificates and marksheets. Although late, the admission season has started, and students are currently applying to numerous junior colleges affiliated with the state board.
The principals are worried that not having the documents may pose a problem for many college aspirants. Junior colleges have allowed students to register by providing soft copies of the documents required, but they are demanding the original marksheet to confirm the admission.
The Principal of a well-renowned CBSE school in Navi Mumbai said,
“The Class XII certificates came about 15 days ago, but Class X students are still waiting. Most of them have registered for the FYJC (First Year Junior College) admission process using the soft copy acquired through DigiLocker. But, the junior colleges are insisting on the original marksheet to confirm admission.”
As per official data, approximately 6,742 CBSE students have applied for admission under the centralized FYJC admission process. The Supreme Court of India passed an order staying the Maratha quota, and since 9 September 2020, the admission process has been on hold. However, admissions may likely resume this week. According to a senior official from CBSE, the board had dispatched the marksheets from Delhi, and the schools would receive them soon.
