Students hoping to gain admission into the city’s eleventh semester will learn about the colleges they are assigned to as the much-anticipated first-degree merit list for first-year college (FYJC) admission will be released on Wednesday.
For the first round of the Common Admissions Process (CAP), a total of 2,47,907 candidates filled out forms for the 2,30,927 seats available. However, according to the Office of Deputy Director of Education (DyDE), Mumbai, which conducts the central online admission process, students need not worry because in the end, ample seats will be available for them.
“Although there is a distinct difference in the number of seats available and the students competing for them, there is no need to worry. The actual total number of seats available for admission to FYJC this year is 3,71,275 after including a quota of 1,40,348 (for minority, internal applicants and management) ), which is accepted at individual college levels. An official from the DyDE office said 14,226 candidates had already confirmed admission to the quota seats. The officer said colleges could face a vacancy issue once the admissions process was over. . Besides, there are others who have applied for vocational education (in ITIs) and polytechnic courses and may end up not accepting admission to junior colleges at all,” the official added.
Lakhs number of students were waiting for FYJC admission after SSC result was announced on 17th June. However, the central process had to wait for the results of other boards to ensure that all eligible candidates participated in the process. While the ICSE class X result was out on July 17, the CBSE class X result was announced on July 22 – the same day the second part of the form was opened for candidates to fill out their college selection.
On Wednesday, students who have been allocated places at the College by their first preference will have to confirm their admission. Candidates who fail to do so will be disqualified from the next round.
