Nostalgia & new trips

Central University of Bihar will conduct an independent admission test for its undergraduate and postgraduate programmes this academic session.

The examination — Central University of Bihar Entrance Test, 2014, — will assist the central university select students for both the Gaya and Patna campuses. Seats in undergraduate, postgraduate and integrated MPhil-PhD programmes under different disciplines would be filled through the independent admission test.

Central University of Bihar’s controller of examinations Chappidi Lakshmi Prabhavathi said: “For the first time, the university is going to conduct the entrance tests in various courses independently. It has been named Central University of Bihar Entrance Test, 2014. Last year, the admissions to Central University of Bihar (Patna and Gaya campuses) were conducted through the Central University Combined Entrance Test. The Central University of Rajasthan conducted it. We expect that conducting the entrance test on our own would make the process easier on the students and the university would also get applications from various parts of the country.”

Sources said eligible candidates would have to submit their application forms online or offline, along with the requisite fees, on or before April 25.

The online test would be conducted on May 31 and June 1 at 32 centres across India, while written tests, group discussions, interviews and other processes would be conducted between June 16 and 20.

The sources added that candidates would find relevant information on the eligibility for admission, number of seats, fee, test centres and procedure for submission of forms on the Central University of Bihar website (

Pass the baton

A blend of happiness and nostalgia was in the air on Monday when Cimage College bade farewell to its bachelor of computer applications (BCA) and bachelor of business administration (BBA) students.

A farewell programme was put up for the final-year students and everybody came dressed in their best. Among the attractions at the event was a fashion show. The outgoing students strutted down the ramp and BCA students Sneha Gaur and Abhishek Agrawal walked away with the titles of Miss Talented and Mr Talented, respectively. BBA department students Pratibha and Rakesh Kumar went home with the runner-up positions.

A short cultural programme was also organised at the farewell during which the junior students sang and danced for the final-year batch.

A DJ performance at the end kept the party’s tempo up.

Cimage College director Neeraj Agrawal, chairperson Basant Agrawal, centre head Medha Agrawal, human resources head Neha Mahendra were some of the dignitaries present at the farewell ceremony.

Neeraj praised the outgoing batch and told the students: “The period of learning never ends and there is no age to acquire knowledge.”

Wishing them well for the future, chairperson Basant Agrawal asked the outgoing students to carry forward the baton of Cimage College and the values and lessons imbibed in them.

Before long, the final-year students had tears in their eyes.

Shailesh Kumar, one of the BCA students, said: “Our college, from time to time, organised different programmes for us. From educational to cultural programmes, all of the events provided us exposure and helped us develop our personality”.

Rachna, an outgoing BBA student, said: “Our college organised lectures by senior managers, human resource heads and operational heads of different corporate houses for us. All of these were an enriching experience.”
