Utkal University slips to 93rd spot in NIRF rankings; is education system in Odisha on declining trend?
The Odisha government has directed to conduct spot admissions for Plus-2 courses in the State through online mode. As per a directive from the Higher Secondary Education Directorate, some changes have been made to SAMS (e-Admission) application for the academic session 2023-24.
The department has proposed SPOT selection admission through online mode instead of physical mode registration as practiced previously.
Online spot selection information will be shared through WhatsApp or SMSes. Candidates who have not opted for e-Admission (+2/ITI/Diploma) will be tracked and an SMS will be sent to those mobile numbers for creating awareness.
A notification informing the development read, “The candidate's data related to the 10th pass Board Name, Year of Passing, Roll Number, and Exam type (Regular/Supplementary) must match with the SAMS database. The applicant will not be able to fill out or submit the CAF if there is a mismatch in the given data. However, the system will only let the applicants update the marks-related discrepancy.”
