Postal delay shatters Parveen's dream
OT, May 22, 2011 IST
After successfully completing her 10th exams in Bhagalpur, Bihar, Rabia Parveen wanted to study in Jamia School. So when the school released the admission form for 11th Class she and her parents were happy as the big moment had arrived. After filling the form, she posted it through Speed Post, expecting it to reach before the deadline that was May 10. And a day after that she came to Delhi to appear for the entrance test. When she didn’t get the admit card, she got alarmed and contacted school officials. She was told that due to postal delay, the form reached the school on the evening of May 11, a day later. Her form was rejected.
Parveen is devastated as she can’t appear for her dream test. She told OKHLA TIMES: “Due to postal delay my admit card was delayed. Dejected, now she is planning to return to her hometown.” Her parents are also unhappy with the unfortunate development. They know that the dream of their daughter to study in Jamia School is shattered. There are others like Parveen who met with the same fate.
Bhagalpur-based Ishtiaq Alam blamed the postal delay for not being given admit card. Another aspirant Afzal from Aligarh too faced the same problem.
Schools director Professor Mujtaba Khan said: “Many students face this problem. It is important that they should be careful and apply in advance so that their forms reach the school on time.” Also, Jamia School provides duplicate admit card to aspirants in case they have lost the original one.
This year a total of 10,000 admission forms for admission to XI class have been received. The number has risen from six thousand (6000) in 2010 to ten thousand (10000) in 2011, according to school officials.
