While some colleges plan to distribute the documents over the weekend, many others will call their students in groups in the coming week. While the university did not mandate scanned copies of stamp sheets, universities have received requests from students applying elsewhere for admission.
St. Xavier’s College managed to distribute the branding sheets to almost 80% of the students on Friday. The rest will pick them up on Tuesday, said director Rajendra Shinde. Pupils or parents were called in groups of 20 to 25 people in different time slots. “We had to ask some employees for help to ensure that social distance standards were met,” said Shinde. Soumya Shajan, a science student, said they didn’t have to wait longer than five minutes to collect the documents. “I was also allowed to collect my friend’s trademark sheets after I submitted a photo and an authorization letter.”
