FYJC 2018 Mumbai: Complete schedule, important dates for FYJC admissions 1
Students can start filling the admission form from today, June 13

The Maharashtra Education Department has announced the schedule/timetable for the first-year junior college admissions for the academic year 2018-19 on its admission portal.

Around 800 Mumbai colleges, comprising of more than 3 lakh seats, are part of the admission process.


UPDATE2nd merit list out, revised timetable announced


In addition to the schedule, the department also uploaded the cut-offs for the previous year on the online admission portal.

Till last year, the department would print cut-offs of junior colleges in the information booklet which students had to purchase to get the User ID and Password. However, the cut-offs were uploaded to the online portal this year.

Meanwhile, since 30 percent more students scored over 90 percent marks in 2017-18 compared to previous year, the competition is stiffer and likely to push the cut-offs for top colleges higher.

With admission process starting today, students can begin filling and submit part II of the admission form on the portal.
