Jamshedpur, May 25 : With results of the Class XII board examination, ISC declared, the students in the city have started heading for destinations outside the city.

Every year, the city sees a huge exodus, with students preferring Delhi, Mumbai and other metro cities in North and West to their own. School authorities informed that on average around six to eight thousand students migrate to metros for higher education and numbers are increasing every year.

Moreover, most of the students after completion of their education settle in other States thus leaving their home place to struggle with exodus of human resource too.

Teachers and the principals of city-based schools opine that crisis of qualified teachers in colleges,delayed academic sessions and inadequate infrastructure for higher studies have led the students migrate to other cities.

 �We cannot deny that exodus of the students to other metro cities for better education facilities is also one of the reasons for average performance of the city in the engineering examination,� said RK Mishra, a city-based trainer of IIT aspirants.

He said that the students are moving to other cities for higher education and preparations of competitive examination. This may also be the reason why Mumbai zone has registered an overwhelming performance in IIT-JEE while eastern zone has done pretty badly in compare to last year.

Those who keen to study humanities and commerce are eyeing into University of Delhi (DU).St Stephen’s College, Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), Hans Raj College, Kirori Mal College, Lady Shri Ram College for Women (LSR) and Miranda House are some of the top choices.

Colleges in Kolkata that are a big draw include Lady Brabourne,St Xavier’s, and Scottish Church. Christ College, Mount Carmel College and City College are some of the preferred destinations in Bangalore while Symbiosis and Fergusson College are the most sought after in Pune.

 When contacted a senior professor of Kolhan University college, said that the poor infrastructure and educational facilities in the colleges forces students to move for greener pastures.

Moreover, most of the students after completion of their education settle in other States thus leaving their home place to struggle with exodus of human resource too.

 �The scope to excel is limited here, for instance there is a dearth of good institutes and teachers in the city. If a student wants to study space engineering, where he goes,� said Rajesh Singh, a student of Karim City College.

He said that everyone is aware of the condition of Kolhan University. Now who would want to spoil his career by taking admission in such colleges where the infrastructure is not up to the mark and the conditions of classrooms and laboratories are worse.
