The office of the Deputy Director of Education (DyDE) has uploaded the cut-off list for colleges in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region under round one of First Year Junior College (FYJC) 2018 admissions on its online portal.
The first general merit list for FYJC 2018 aspirants was declared on July 5. The department had allotted students time from July 6 to 9 to confirm admissions under the first round.
However, in the wake of incessant rainfall, the deadline to confirm admissions was first pushed to July 10, and later extended till July 11. Interested students now have time till 5 pm today to visit the allotted college and pay the fee to confirm their seat.
The department also released a revised FYJC 2018 timetable for Mumbai and Nagpur divisions in the wake of unforeseen delays.

As expected, most top colleges witnessed a slight rise in the cut-off percentages this year on account of more students scoring top marks across all SSC, ISCE and CBSE boards.
On average, the top colleges across Science, Arts, and Commerce saw their first-round cut-off percentages increase by anywhere between 1-3 percent.
