Admission battle began on Saturday at nine government-run high schools in the Chittagong city amid tensions of admission seekers, more specifically their guardians.

A total of 19,074 children will compete for coveted enrolment in the top-graded secondary schools, which altogether can accommodate 1750 students.

It means 11 children will vie for a seat in any of the public schools, whose brighter SSC results and lower tuition fees prompt middle-class guardians to fight for admission of their children there.

Though there are about 200 government and private schools operated in the city areas, these few schools every year see a mad rush of anxious guardians.

A total of 350 students will get chance in the Government Collegiate School, 230 students in Dr. Khastagir Girls’ High School, 280 in Nasirabad Government Boys’ School, 120 in Nasirabad Girls’, 240 in Government Muslim High School, 120 in Government Boys’, 150 in Government Mohsin High School, 160 in Bakalia Laboratory School and 100 in City Girls High School this year, school sources said.

Admission test for class five was held at five schools Saturday, with a huge number of guardians crowding the school premises for hours.

Traffic movement slowed at some busy city roads including Chwak Bazar, Nasirabad, New market intersection, Kotowali and Jamal Khan as waiting guardians sitting and gossiping on roads and pavements.School authorities took adequate security measures to ward off any untoward incident during the examinations, sources said.

Traffic department deployed additional policemen to ease movement.The admission tests will end on January 23.
