    Government high schools in the state are seeing a decrease in student enrollment in junior colleges. In total, there are 85,038 first-year students and 78,799 second-year students in 416 government junior colleges. Each junior college should ideally have 320 students spread across different groups.

    However, some junior colleges have less than 100 students, while others have over 1,500 students. Private unaided junior colleges, on the other hand, have around 2.5 lakh students, with most of them in the MPC group.
