FYJC 2018: Vacancy list for Round 2 out, seats left in Top 25 Mumbai colleges
The office of the Deputy Director of Education (DyDE) uploaded the vacancy list for colleges in Mumbai Metropolitan Region for centralised round 2 of First Year Junior College (FYJC) admissions for the year 2018-19 on its online portal around 11 am on Thursday.
The vacancy list includes the number of seats available in colleges after the completion of round one. Students seeking admission in the next round can refer to the vacancy and cut-off lists before selecting their new list of preferred colleges.
Meanwhile, around 40 percent of students who were allotted colleges in the first general merit list confirmed their admissions. The list was declared on July 5 and close to 1.2 lakh were allotted seats, of which around 50,600 confirmed admissions.
Since the department had made it mandatory for students – who were allotted seats in the college listed as their first preference – to confirm admissions, a majority of seats in the top ten colleges across Arts, Science, and Commerce streams have been taken up.
According to Deputy Secretary of the School Education Department, Suvarna Kharat, the near 70,000 remaining students are either hoping to secure a seat a better college in the second list or have sought/taken admission in another course.
