IntroductionIndiaStudychannel is an authentic educational website and is rated as the best educational website in India. Its resources section is very rich and popular among candidates who aspire to secure admission in the different type of courses in various educational institutions across India and those who intend to appear in various competitive examinations for securing a rewarding job. Throughout the year, admission notifications are published by the respective institutions/organizations on their websites and also in the reputed newspapers. Often such notifications are very lengthy and full of related technical/legal jargons. Apparently, there is a lot of scope in developing and publishing admission alert/notification articles in simple language based on the official notifications issued by the respective organizations with a view of creating awareness among the admission/jobs seekers and drawing their attention to the official publication.
HeadingsGenerally in most of the cases the 'admission alert/notification' articles may contain the following headings. A brief account of the nature of contents against each heading is also given below -
IntroductionFor writing the introduction part of the articles, besides referring the official admission notification, the website of the concerned institution/organization may also be referred for writing an appropriate introduction of the article.
Important datesImportant dates like application start date, application closing date, admit card download date, preliminary examination date, final examination date, interview date, result declaration date etc. may be included under this heading. However, the typed dates should be checked at least thrice or even more to ensure that the same are correct only.
Eligibility criteriaThe eligibility criteria may include academic eligibility criteria, age criteria, nationality criteria and any other specified criteria. The core points should be mentioned in the article without missing any important information, though avoiding detailed descriptive account.
ReservationGenerally, in cases of the Government institutions, the reservation criteria is fixed, but still it is advisable to include the same in the article if mentioned in the admission notification. However, all the details given in the admission notification e.g. nature of the physical disabilities in case of seats reserved for the persons with disabilities need not be reproduced in the article. Instead, the candidates may be advised to refer the original notification.
Application fee Category wise application fee described in the admission notification may be mentioned in the article. Related information like the mode of payment of the fee or the information that the fee once paid is not refundable under any circumstances etc. may be included strictly as given in the admission notification.
How to submit applicationThis is perhaps one of the most important parts of the article and has to be drafted very carefully after fully understanding/comprehending the actual process. It is always advisable to draw the attention of the candidates toward the instructions/directions given in the admission notification in this regard.
Examination formatMany examinations comprise three stages like preliminary examination, final examination and personal interview. Such details may be included in this section together with the type of examination i.e. whether it is an objective/Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) or Internet Based Test (IBT) or CBT or Computer Based Test (CBT) or online type format. Subjects to be covered and duration of examination, weightage of marks etc. may be included in this part. However, instead of attempting to incorporate detailed syllabus, which is likely to make the article very lengthy, it is better to advise the candidates to refer the original notification.
Contact detailsGenerally, the contact details like phone number, email address and postal address etc. are mentioned in the admission notification for making any kind of inquiry regarding admission procedure or such other details etc. Sometimes, the name of an individual is also mentioned. Such details should be mentioned in this part though by taking care to not to simply copy and paste from the published notification.
ConclusionIt is very important part of the article in the sense that the candidates should be advised to refer the original notification published in the newspaper or the website and refer and rely on the information displayed on the same only. It may be made clear that the article is only illustrative in nature and not comprehensive. The candidates may be advised to read the instructions carefully and adhere to the same scrupulously before taking further necessary action regarding submission of the application etc.
