The Education Department released the general/provisional merit list for first-year junior college (FYJC) 2018 aspirants on its admission portal around 5:30 pm on Friday.

UPDATE: FYJC 2018 – First merit list out, here’s how to check


The list ranks all FYJC applicants on the basis of their scores and includes details like the applicant’s name, marks, caste, stream, location among others.

Since the list will form the basis of the next four merit lists, students are expected to go through it and ensure that all details are in order.

In case of corrections, applicants can submit them to the Deputy Director of Education in the prescribed format between June 30 and July 2. Once the corrections are in place, the department will declare the first merit list on July 5.

Those who wish to confirm their admission to the college allotted in the first list will be able to do so by paying the fees on or before 5 pm on July 9. FYJC aspirants had to specify up to 10 preferred colleges while filling the admission form.

Around 2.3 lakh students have applied for seats in colleges across Science, Commerce, and Arts streams this year.

Like previous years, the maximum number of students – roughly 1.4 lakh – have applied under the Commerce stream. Science and Arts, meanwhile, received around 67,000 and 19,000 applications respectively. Less than 1,500 applied for the HSC vocational stream.

The cut-off percentages are expected to be slightly higher than last year as more students scored top marks in Secondary School Certificate (SSC), Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Indian Certificate for Secondary Examination (ICSE).
