Guest Author: Jyotiprasad Bori04 Jun 2013

Thanks Mr. sarma for bringing out this notification of the premier college in Assam. But unfortunately the college administration via. a press notification has postponed the date of issuing forms and prospectus to un-notified date. So by the time students were proudly waiting for their admission into the college, it has created a dilemma among those aspirants who were hoping to join the college. It is the dilemma that if a students' percentage does not meet the required cut-off after eager expectation, they not only miss their wish to study in this college but most importantly they also will have to miss the chance to seek admission in some other colleges. So this postponing of former notified schedule is not always welcomed by the student community. The college administration should look into this matter with deliberate administration and make a transparent admission system.
