• You can give details on WhatsApp for admission
• Students can enroll as provisional
The Yogi government of Uttar Pradesh has now found a way to enroll students through WhatsApp in all schools of UP board in Corona lockdown.
UP’s education department has also given permission to use this unique method. Earlier, the Department of Secondary Education in UP has instructed the students of classes 6, 7, 8, 9, and 11th to be promoted to the next class without examination.
However, according to the latest system, school managers can enroll students in the next class through WhatsApp. For this, the school management can disseminate the mobile number of the Principal and the teacher, so that the students passed in the previous class can apply for admission in the next class. Students or their parents can give details only on WhatsApp and can enroll as provisional.
After the lockdown opens, the school management in July can do the admission paperwork and seal it. Also, the school can connect the admitted students with the online education system.
In the directive issued by the government, the WhatsApp group has been created for the online virtual class, it has been directed to give the benefit of online education by adding students who have been admitted on it. In Lucknow, the aided school Aminabad Inter College has also started the online admission process. According to the Principal, students can take admission in up to class 12.
According to the management, the student can WhatsApp by writing his and father’s name on the paper, the class in which he wants to take admission, mobile number, Aadhaar number, etc. After this, online education will also be given by adding the student to the online group. Later on, the school opens, it will be asked for the original documents and it will be recorded in the admission record of the school.
