Increase in seats

Last year, the government had sanctioned a 20% increase in Plus One seats in all government and aided higher secondary schools. It then gave the nod for a further 10% increase in Plus One seats in all government and aided higher secondary schools in six northern districts of Malappuram, Kozhikode, Palakkad, Kannur, Wayanad and Kasaragod.

At present, of the 3,61,763 Plus One seats available in the State, 2,38,844 are available under the single-window system. Last year, there were 2,94,942 seats available under it.
