Bhubaneswar: In a big relief to ‘slide-up’ students or those not able to take admission into Plus III courses, Odisha government today issued a fresh notification on extending dates of admission.
Students who had slid-up to higher option but not taken admission during the scheduled period will be allowed to take admission in the higher preference college where selected on October 6 and 7, a letter by Higher Education department Joint Secretary B Parameswaram stated.
Similarly students who have not applied online or taken admission in any of the colleges or even taken admission in a particular college but wish to continue in another college can also take admission between October 9 and 11, the notification said.
If no vacancies exist to accommodate ‘slide up’ students, the college can create more seats above the sanctioned strength for this academic year only.
