Karachi, July 27: The process of admissions to colleges in Class XI in the city's 123 public sector colleges for the academic year 2009-10 under the Centralised Admission Policy (CAP) 2009 will begin on July 28.

This was announced by the Director-General of Colleges, Sindh, Prof Dr Rafiq Ahmed here on Friday.

He said that the admission forms would be available at the Al- Habib Bank branches in the metropolis.

Dr Rafiq, who heads the 18-member CAP committee formed by the provincial education department, said that the admission forms would be issued until August 8 and applicants were required to submit the duly filled up forms at the issuing bank branch.

He said that the admission policy this year was unchanged. He recalled that about 92,000 applicants were given admission to the government colleges, including five newly opened colleges, of the city last year.

This year, he added, some 98,000 applicants would be accommodated in the colleges.

Dr Rafiq said the classes were expected to commence by the second week of September.

He said the price of the admission form along with the prospectus had been reduced to Rs50 from Rs100.—APP

Sources in the education department said that admissions would be offered to fresh matriculates in six different faculties at the city's government colleges, our staff reporter adds.

The six faculties included pre-engineering, pre-medical, computer science, commerce, humanities and home economics, they said, adding that most of the admissions, numbering around 22,630, would be given in the pre-engineering faculty, followed by the commerce faculty for which there would be about 22,500 seats. There remaining seats expected to be available are: humanities (over 20,500), pre-medical (16,345), computer science (1,255) and home economics (600).

According to the sources, the students who have passed their Secondary School Certificate/Technical Board exams, GCE (O' Level) or equivalent annual examinations in 2009 could apply for admissions to Class XI in the city's government colleges. Moreover, all those students who have passed their above-mentioned examinations last year, or indeed in any year up to five years ago, are also eligible for admissions but with the condition that five marks for each year between 2009 and the year they obtained their results will be deducted from their total marks to determine their merit.

The students who will be passing their SSC or equivalent supplementary examinations-2009 will not be eligible for admission in the 2009-10 academic session. Besides, all those students who have already appeared in the HSC (part-I or II) examinations from the Board of Intermediate Education Karachi or from any other educational boards of the country will not be re-admitted to Class XI.

Regarding the students who have given their O' Level examinations, the sources said that it would be imperative for the students passing GCE O' Level examinations to have passed their exams for the subjects of English, Urdu, Islamiat, Pakistan Studies and four optional subjects. Besides, the students belonging to this category would also be required to get an equivalence certificate from the Inter-Boards Committee of Chairmen in Islamabad. Dawn
