Few FYJC seats left in top colleges, cut-offs unlikely to drop in FYJC 2nd merit list

MUMBAI: Around 1.19 lakh first year junior college seats will be offered to students in the fyjc second round of admissions i.e fyjc 2nd merit list 2017, but there remains just a handful of seats in the most prestigious institutions. Principals all over expect the fyjc cut-offs to be the same or just decline only marginally when the fyjc second merit list is announced on July 20 at

After the fyjc first round of admissions was over, the list of vacancies was released at 11 pm Friday. Students can use those details for the colleges of preference for the second round.
Only a few seats remain vacant at most of the top colleges.

Parag Ajagaonkar, principal, NM College said, "We have only 13 seats left and our first cut off closed at 91.83%. As there are most of the students with the same marks,so the cut-offs are not expected to drop lower than 91.75%." Out of the 1.56 lakh students, about 75,000 students who were allotted seats did not report for the 11th admission. The reasons are clear as most of the students are waiting for a better chance in the fyjc second merit list scheduled to be announced on Thursday.

VG Vaze College, Mulund, also do not expect a change in cut-offs. Vice principal Vidyadhar Joshi said, "Almost 93% of our commerce stream seats are filled and we are getting enquiries from students scoring more than our first list cut-offs and they want to put our college as the first preference in the fyjc second round. Due to this, our cut-offs may not see a decline."

The portal was opened for students to make any changes in their admission forms at 3pm, it was usually planned to open the portal for students at 10 am before. List of vacancies was also missing from the 11th admission portal for some hours. Sameena Shaikh, a parent said, "We wanted to change the preference of colleges but were just not able to log in on the portal. We reported to a guidance centre then we were sent to Charni Road. Only at 3.30 pm, we were finally able to edit the forms". Many parents and students waited outside office of the deputy director with almost similar queries. After logging on the website, some students find the application forms details for Pune city website - Students lost time in form filling because of the delay. Students who want to make any online changes can do so till Tuesday (July 18).
