Now the colleges use different codes like BA 19 for Bachelor of Arts joined in 2019, BS 19 for science students and BC 19 for commerce students. But Plus III science has completely two different streams like physical sciences and biological science. “So, separate codes may be adopted for these two category students for more clarity,” said Mihir Kumar Das, officer-in-charge of performance tracking cell under higher education department.

If a Plus III student with physical science category joins this year with good marks, he may get BS (P)-19-001. Similarly, the roll number for a student with biological science will be BS (B)-19-001.

SAMS ensure single window system for admission through e-Admission process. It was started in 2009-10 for Plus II and then for Plus III in 2011-12. The roll number system has been used since then.
