Only 20% of FYJC applicants confirm admission within four days, deadline is Wednesday | News from Mumbai | Tech US News


Mumbai: Blame it on the long weekend and travel plans or students unwilling to change their college preference, only 20% First Year Junior College (FYJC) applicants from the second merit list had confirmed admission by Monday.

College principals attributed this low enrollment to students traveling during the extended weekend.

“Lots of admission confirmations happened on Thursday, August 12, when the second merit list was announced. As of Friday, very few students have completed the process and we fear they will wait until the last day to upload the necessary documents to confirm their admission. It could get chaotic,” said the principal of a suburban college.

The second merit list was released by the office of Deputy Director of Education (DyDE) on August 12 where 69,691 students were allotted seats.

Of these, 15,121 got a place at the faculty according to their first choice, followed by 13,566 and 10,239 students who were placed at the faculty with their second and third preferences.

These students have until Wednesday 17 August to confirm their places. However, by August 15, out of 69,691 students allotted seats, only 14,114 had confirmed their admission. “Many students are very clear that they will only confirm admission if they have a guaranteed place in the course and bifocal subject of their choice. It is surprising how many students are willing to give up their city in the hope of getting admission in colleges of their choice later,” said Naresh Chandra, Director (Education), BK Birla College, Kalyan.

This year, admissions to FYJC seats were delayed by a few weeks as the DyDE was waiting for the declaration of Class 10 results of all the school boards of education before starting the process. After the release of the final results in the last week of August, the applications for FYJC admissions started and the first merit list was released on 3rd August. In the first round announced on August 3, over 1.39 lakh students were allotted seats and nearly 75,000 of these students had their admission confirmed.

Currently, nearly 55% of the seats in colleges across the city are still vacant. “Many students know that they can apply for a place at the college of their choice under the management quota, so they will not confirm their acceptance until they are satisfied with their place allocation. This trend, while some succeed, becomes chaotic in colleges as the admission process is getting longer and longer,” said Pooja Ramchandani, Principal, HR College, Churchgate.

What is the scenario?

Total seat consumption – 3.71 lakh

Total student registration–2.47 lakh

Number of students who got seats in the first round on August 3 – 1.39 lakh

The total number of students who confirmed admission after the first round – 67,668

Number of students allotted seats in the second round on August 12 – 69,691
