No takers for BEd, MEd courses


PUNE: Colleges offering graduate and postgraduate degree courses in education across state are at a loss.

Around 67% seats in the bachelor of education (BEd) and 90% in the master's in education (MEd) course are lying vacant this year.

"The ban on teacher recruitment and the entrance test for admission set by the state government are the prime reasons for the grim situation," experts said.

At the beginning of the admission process this year, managements of private teacher training colleges had demanded that the Common Entrance Test (CET) for BEd and MEd courses must be scrapped given the poor registration for the examination for the academic year 2016-17. The number of candidates registering for CET was about half the total intake capacity of colleges offering BEd and MEd courses.

Education activist Matin Mujawar, "Teachers' training institutions have a combined intake capacity of about 60,000 seats, but barely 30,000 candidates had registered for the examination. Though the poor response is not new, it makes no sense to impose the CET when there is no competition."
