Following the announcement of the merit list for the special round of First Year Junior College (FYJC) online admissions, almost 45,000 students have secured a seat in a college allotted to them.
The special round was conducted, after the culmination of the first four rounds, for students who were either unhappy with their existing colleges, wished to change their stream, chose a wrong subject or cleared July re-exam. For the new round, students had to re-register on the University’s website, fill a new form and submit a fresh list of preferred colleges.
Under the special round, 67,627 students had registered for admission, off which 59,960 were allotted seats. Out of those who were allotted seats, 44,443 confirmed their admission by the end of the admission period on Saturday.
The percentage of students who confirmed their admission under the special round was higher as almost 40,000 students managed to secure a seat in a college which was listed among their top three preferences. In fact, over 27,000 students secured a seat in a college that was listed as their number one preference.
The remaining students, who either did not confirm admission under the special round, wish to change their college or were not allotted seats, will have an option of applying afresh under second special round.
About second special round:
# University will declare an updated list of colleges which have seats vacant by August 16.
# Like the first special round, students will have to fill a new form with their updated college preferences based on the newly released list.
# The form filling process for the second special round will begin from August 18 and end on August 19.
# The merit list for the second special round will be announced on August 21 (tentative).
# Students who manage to secure a seat under the second special round will have to confirm admissions by August 22-23 (tentative).
If there are students who have not secured a seat by the end of the second special round, the education department may announce a third special round. However, the decision on that will be taken post August 23.Back to latest news
