College admissions are deemed as one of the most defining periods in a students life. In countries where the Government plays an important role in the education space, a college degree is both affordable and desirable. Most of the developing world, where education is a key performance indicator for the wellbeing of its citizens, the need to educational institutes that provide important skills for enhancement of earning potentials is paramount. In a vast country like India, which has one of the largest government run education systems in the world, the challenges are many fold. Every year, close to 10 Million students appear for their 10th Standard exams and with an average pass percentage close to 80, 8 Million of them would be eligible for a higher education. The need to manage these many data points every year, across various states and different educational boards, makes the whole process one of the most intensive data management exercises in India.

This is compounded by the need of the students to apply for multiple colleges, each having their own systems in silos, made it a nightmare for parents and students. This is the gap that is being addressed by the Admission Management System developed by CSM.  It has been successfully implemented for two large state run education departments, SAMS, run by the Higher Education Department in Odisha that cater to 8 Million students and 5800 colleges and OFSS by the Bihar School Examination Board that caters to 1.5 Million students and close to 3000 colleges.


CSM’s Admission Management System solves each of those pain areas by using technology to enable the colleges and the students. Using an online architecture that uses Machine Learning and AI, the system can ensure that both the students and the colleges get the right candidates. No more wasting of resources, monies and time to complete the admission process. The various modules that enable the system are enumerated below: 

Before the Admission Management System was implemented, every college gave out their own prospectus, had their own admission process and the students had to fill in multiple applications, sometimes traveling long distances to submit the same. This was a major deterrence and highly inefficient, resulting in skewed filling of seats.
