Ever wondered why students from Bihar flock to other states for admissions in +2 and Gradutaion courses?
Well if you thought that it’s because of the quality of education which other Universities provide, then think again?
As per this report “In Patna University (PU), the academic life of general students passing class X examination either from Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) or Indian Certificate of School Examination (ICSE) would begin at 92 this year. Students securing less than 92 per cent are unlikely to be admitted to ISc class in any college of PU.
According to the cut-off marks announced by different PU colleges for admission to ISc (mathematics and biology groups) class, the minimum marks required for admission in mathematics group for CBSE/ICSE pass-outs are 92 per cent in Patna Women’s College (PWC). In Patna Science College (PSC) and Magadha Mahila College (MMC), the cut-off marks are 93 and 92.75 per cent, respectively. The cut-off marks in B N College are expected to be above 92 per cent.
In biology group, the cut-off marks declared for admission of general category students are 91 (PSC), 90.28 (PWC) and 88 (MMC). The cut-off marks for candidates belonging to reserved categories (BC-I, BC-II, SC and ST) for CBSE/ICSE pass-outs are somewhat lower (around 85 per cent).
Going by this one can easily assume that admissions to any PU college in Bihar is tougher than getting into any other school, college in the country.
Can we assume that only those who fail to get admission into Patna University Colleges actually migrate to other states?
Well not really but one thing is for sure that Patna University still attract some of the best talents in the state .If the results in the various national level competitions are any indicator, one can actually assume that we our Institutions are attracting best of talent and we just need to improve the quality of infrastructure to change the face of our good old Universities.
