Bihar: BEd counselling to start from today; aspirants in a fix

Lalit Narayan Mithila University (LNMU), a node university to facilitate admission to the BEd course in 14 state universities, will begin the first round of advisory process on Wednesday, ending September 29.

Thousands of students striving for admission to the BEd course are in a tight spot because they only get one chance to take part in the advisory process.

According to LMNU, more than 1.12 lakh candidates qualified for the BEd Common entrance exam this year. Of these, over 73,000 candidates have registered for admission to 350 BEd colleges across the state.

Ashok Mehta, Nodal State Officer, said, “If a candidate decides not to be admitted to the assigned college in the first round, they will not have another chance to attend the second consultation. However, the spot-round consultation is open to all qualified candidates. “

BEd candidates used to be able to take part in the multi-round advisory process and upgrade their college choice in the next advisory round according to the availability of free places.

A candidate Prakash Kumar, who scored 92 on the joint entrance exam, said, “I have been assigned a private college which is 115 km from my home. It was my sixth college preference. “

“Closing the window for second round counseling is unfair for performance-oriented students. I deserve better college, but leaving first chance is risky. The on-site admission is based on a first-come, first-serve policy, which can also result in low-scoring students at good colleges entering through the back door, ”he added.

Meanwhile, another segment of the students assigned to the College of Teacher Education (CTE), Saharsa, are in distress as their college membership was removed following the release of the college allotment list on September 18.

Mehta said, “Those who have been assigned CTE need not panic as we are trying to find a solution. The candidates will be informed about the next steps by SMS. ”

The LMNU has planned the second round of consultations from October 16 to 23.
