NOT A ROADBLOCK, THIS Students who do not make it to their desired stream or college must introspect closely and look at various options that are available

 The admission procedure for the first year junior college (FYJC) is nearing completion but more than 37,000 students are still waiting to get admitted into junior colleges in the city. In the race to get into the top colleges, a majority of students who have not scored very high marks are worried about not getting into the college of their choice, especially after the Bombay high court put a seal on the minority quota seats in junior colleges.

Experts in the education sector say that the road to a successful career for students who do not make it to their desired stream or college is not halted and all they have to do is to change focus towards a subject of their choice.

Speaking about the scenario, Sheetal Bapat, a career expert and founder of NGO Shyamchi Aai Foundation, said, “The first and foremost is the lack of realistic choices. Instead of confirming admissions in the previous rounds where they are allotted colleges, many chose to wait hoping to get a better ranking college. Parents and students need to understand that the practical move is to get admission in a nearby college so that the student can concentrate on preparing for the undergraduate course.”

The statistics shared by the education department revealed that in each round, only onethird of the students who got allotments to colleges, confirmed their admissions. For instance, in the third CAP round, only 5,801 students have confirmed their admissions out of

17,152 who were allotted seats in the city colleges. And, in the fourth merit list, only 2,850 students have confirmed admissions out of the16,634 seats alloted.

Psychologist Shirisha Sathe looks at the situation with a positive outlook. “If a student really wants to study and make a career for themselves, they can never be out of options. For instance, even if not a conventional Class

11 education, students can opt for various vocational, skill development certificate and

diploma courses. Such courses will not only make them job ready but also help them carve a specialised niche for themselves.

Agreeing Bapat added, “Even though the world is talking about innovation, we are yet to look at career options innovatively. We are no more in the time of industrial revolution. So, we need to look at the newer options both in education and career. To cite an example, an acquaintance of mine did a vocational course in cooking and hospitality and has now emerged as a successful food blogger and designer for various top-notch events.”

Experts pointed out that students could think of doing a course in industrial training institutes( ITI ) or go in for the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS), even they are not able to make it to FYJC. “Many students at this stage are often confused about what they truly want to do in their life. Many do not even have their priorities set right, so NIOS gives them the freedom to explore and discover their true potential,” added Bapat.
