With E-learn now linked with OCAS, the number of beneficiaries will increase, as almost 100,000 applicants apply via OCAS every year through the Online Portal.
Books of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics have been made available for applicants applying for Intermediate admissions.
Traditionally, as soon as the college admissions are announced, applicants wait for their classes to get started but with this initiation they can get their hands on the curriculum before time which will resultantly help them make gains in preparation and get a better knowledge of their desired subject.
The Higher Education Department (HED) of Punjab identified student admissions to government colleges as an important citizen service, where technology interventions could make the application and later learning process convenient for applicants as well as college administrators.
Over recent years, Higher Education Department of Punjab has increased the colleges offering online admissions facility to more than 730 across Punjab.
