Following the announcement of the fourth merit list on July 18, thousands of students from Mumbai are yet to secure their First Year Junior College (FYJC) admissions. However, to ensure that every student is allotted a seat, the state will be announcing a fifth list and conducting 3 rounds of admission after accepting fresh/corrected applications.
According to the department’s data, out of the total 2.2 lakh students that applied for admissions this year, 1.53 lakh students secured admissions under the first three lists. Apart from the merit lists, around 35,000 students secured admissions under minority, sports or management quotas.
While the state agreed to announce another list, it has rejected the request of hundreds of parents who had asked the state to conduct an offline round. “As per the requirements of the Bombay High Court, all admissions will be conducted online. Hence, under no circumstances, will any offline admission be conducted. There are about 70,000 students who have not secured their admission in spite of being allotted a seat,” said B B Chavan, Deputy Director of Education.
Going forward, students who have NOT filled the online admission forms OR filled them incorrectly/erroneously OR not secured admission in any college till now, will be able to complete their admission process by following the steps outlined below:
July 25 – Students who have not secured admission in the allotted colleges will be notified about the next list via an SMS and a message on the online portal.
July 28 – Students who were allotted seats in a particular college, can choose secure admission in them. If colleges allot admission to a student, they will be required to update the information on the university’s portal.
July 30 to August 2 – Students who have not secured admission in any college will be able to fill a new admission form on the university website.
August 4 – University will declare the fifth list for those who filled the admission forms the second time.
August 5 to August 6 – Students will be required to confirm their seats in the colleges allotted to them.
Apart from this, a special round will be conducted for students who have:
- Received admission in far off colleges
- Chosen wrong subjects
- Wish to change their stream
- Selected incorrect college priority
- Cleared the July re-exam
These students will be required to re-register by creating a new ID on the university website and paying the requisite fee.
