Almost 60,000 students have been allotted seats under the merit list for the special round of First Year Junior College (FYJC) online admissions, following its announcement on Thursday.

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.

During the two day registration period, almost 70,000 students had applied for a seat under the special round. “Students are unhappy with their allotted seats and so we expected large numbers in this round,” said BB Chavan, Deputy Director of Education, Mumbai region.

Off them, 27,387 were allotted seats in the college listed as their first preference, while 7,904 were allotted the second preference. 5,035 students were allotted seats in colleges listed as their third preference.

Around 7,600 students were not allocated seats in the special round. Rajendra Ahire, Assistant Deputy Director of Education, said that students who have not been allotted a seat in this round will have to apply again in the next round that will begin next week.
