About MES Group
The City of Pune, today is known as the nucleus of education. The city owes this reputation to several educational institutes. The Maharashtra Education Society holds an important share. In 1860 Maharashtra Education Society (MES) formerly called as Poona Native Institutions was founded by Vaman Prabhakar Bhave, Vasudev Balvant Phadke, and Laxman Narhar Indapurkar. MES is the leading entity that provides complete education from K.G. to P.G. Abasaheb Garware College, Renuka Swaroop Memorial Girls School, Balshikshan Mandir, Institute of Management and Career Courses are the few names to understand MES™ roots in to education.
Traditional Admission Process
Traditionally each institute used to conduct independent admission process for various streams. There were cases where student had to submit multiple admission forms for various streams including B Sc/ BCS/ BBA. Each department used to manage admission process for their stream. Their process included various steps of news paper advertisement, inviting applications from students, sale of admission form, accepting filled form and collecting documents like marksheet, leaving certificate, demand draft (in some cases conducting entrance examination for selection of candidates in BBA/ MCS/ MBA etc).
Manual Execution of Admission
Each step of admission process involved supporting teams /staff to assist students and execute admission process smoothly. Student had to visit institute to keep track and get update of admission process every time (during Form Filling, Provisional merit List, First Round admission, Wait List , Fee Payment etc). Each execution involved manual assistance to the student to resolve queries related to admission.
