Ahead of the +3 admissions in Odisha, the Higher Education department is contemplating to resolve several problems being faced by students while seeking admissions.

As per sources, the department is mulling a mechanism to provide College Leaving Certificates (CLC) to students through OTP (One Time Password). Usually, students face a lot of problems in submitting CLC in case of changing educational institutions as well as completing formalities during +3 admissions.

A detailed discussion on various aspects related to +3 admissions for 2022-23 session and CLC through OTP will be taken up at the crucial meeting convened by the higher education department on May 10, sources said.

A review of the admissions in 2021-22 will be done during the crucial conference along with some modifications to the Common Application Forms (CAF). Sources said deliberations on admissions for the 2022-23 academic session, fee structure, verification of the persons with disability certificates and online verification of caste and other certificates submitted by the students will be done at the meeting.

A review of the existing seats in various hostels for boys and girls will also be done during the scheduled meeting which will be attended by regional education directors, head of the institutions and officials.
