In a major relief for Plus 2 students who are opting for special offline examination, the Odisha Higher Education Department on Saturday announced that they will get another chance for Plus 3 admission.
Taking to Twitter, Minister Arun Sahoo allayed fears of the students and announced Phase-II UG admission for those students who are unable to take part in the ongoing admission process as they decided to appear for offline examination after expressing their dissatisfaction over the marks awarded to them through alternative assessment system.
Sahoo informed that the Phase II Plus 3 admission will be conducted towards the end of October or after the publication of the results of offline examination by the Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE).
“The Higher Education Department will start Phase II UG admission process for Plus 2 Arts, Commerce, Science and Vocational Education students appearing for special examination to be conducted by the Council of Higher Secondary Education. The admission process will be conducted towards the end of October or after the publication of results of the above examinations,” Sahoo wrote.
“Students appearing for this special examination can participate in the admission process by filling up Common Application Form on SAMS portal,” he added.

The statement of the Minister came after OTV highlighted the apprehensions of the Plus 2 students who have decided to take the offline examination after expressing displeasure over the marks awarded to them through alternative assessment system. Their annual examination was cancelled this year due to Covid-19 pandemic situation.
As the Plus 3 application process ended today, the offline students feared that they would not get another chance for the admission.
