Six best colleges in Sylhet
The pass rate and GPA-5 in Sylhet Education Board have increased in this year’s SSC examination. However, due to insufficient seats in good colleges, there has been anxiety among the students about the eleventh-grade of class XI admission.
According to the Board of Education, there are 9,420 seats in the top 10 colleges of the Sylhet division. But this year, 91,480 people have passed SSC. 4,263 of them got GPA-5. 18,802 students have passed with ‘A’ grade.
Many will be deprived of admission to the college of their choice as the number of seats is less than the demand. Students and parents are worried about this.
They demand to increase the quality of education and the number of seats in colleges, instead of increasing educational institutions. In this way, it is possible to remove the anxiety of the future of the students and the parents.
Analysis of the results of the SSC examination showed that 3,932 students got GPA-5 from the science department of the Sylhet Board of Education. But in the good colleges in class XI, the seats of the science department are a little more than 2,000. For these reasons, meritorious students are anxious to get admission in the college of their choice even after achieving good results.
Professor Kazi Ataur Rahman, former principal of Sylhet Government College, told Daily Bangladesh that the seats of the best colleges in Sylhet are not in line with the demand. This is depriving the students of getting admission in good colleges. For this, the seats of reputed and ancient educational institutions should be increased.
He added that the colleges have to come out of the business policy mind over education. “The quality of the existing educational institutions in Sylhet should be increased without approving any new educational institutions. For this, the concerned people have to come forward. Otherwise, the meritorious students will drop out,” said Professor Kazi Ataur Rahman.
