Bengal: Class 11 seats increased from 275 to 400

The West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education (WBCHSE) has given approval to schools for increasing their Class 11 seats from 275 to 400 from the academic year 2021-22. This has been done because it is expected that the demand for seats will increase. This year, all 10,79,749 candidates who had enrolled for the Madhyamik (Class 10 board) exam were declared successful this time. To ensure the admission of all students, the number of seats has been increased for Class 11, an official said.

Till 2020-21, the schools were allowed to admit a maximum of 275 students in Class 11. According to WBCHSE’s rules, it was mandatory for the school administration to take the permission of the WBCHSE for increasing even a single seat. The schools  now do not need to take permission from the council to admit up to 400 students.

The schools in Kolkata were divided over this decision of WBCHSE. Parimal Bhattacharya, principal of Jadavpur Vidyapith, Kolkata said, “The guidelines of WBCHSE will be helpful in schools where there is a demand to increase the number of seats. We have already started preparations to admit more students in Class 11 in our school.”
