Junior Colleges in Pune have decided against giving students a summer break. Instead, classes will continue to complete the portion for grade XI.

Brihan Maharashtra College of Commerce (BMCC) Principal Seema Pandit said that the college managed to fill almost all its seats in the first two rounds. This gave them more time and allowed them to finish most of their syllabus. The entirety of the portion will be completed within a week. the college plans on holding online multiple-choice questions based examination in May. Once the tests end, classes for the next academic year will begin for standard XII. Additionally, considering a lack of vacation for students, the college will try to accommodate a 10-day break. Abasaheb Garware College, Pune, has also decided to conduct unit tests at the end of May.
A vast majority of colleges had begun classes for grade XI once 70% of the seats had been occupied. Many colleges are waiting for additional guidance by the state with regards to standard XII’s admissions. Despite the challenges of late admissions, the novel system of online classes and the vast syllabus, most colleges have managed to finish the portion with a slight delay.
