FYJC Admission 2019: State government to add more seats in colleges

FYJC Admission 2019 : Thousands of students are in doubt of securing admission in the First Year Junior College (FYJC) after a downfall in class 10 percentage, the state government is expected to increase the number of seats in the city junior colleges.

Some parents met Vinod Tawde and complained that their child might not get admission in their desired colleges because of the state's decision to do away with the practice of adding internal marks scored in Marathi and other subjects in the total score. The parents had said that the CBSE and International Baccalaureate board (IB) students are benefited by the internal marks system.

The education department has called a meeting of principals from nearly 60 city colleges to discuss the admission issue and the final decision is likely to be taken soon. The government may approve additional 8,000 seats in the colleges by adding one more division in colleges.

The end to add internal marks is believed to be the prime reason behind many students scoring poor marks in the class 10 examinations held by the Maharashtra education board.

Around four lakh students have failed in subjects like the Marathi language and the state has recorded an overall passing percentage of 77.10 per cent, nearly 12 per cent lesser than 2018.

Tawde previously had said that FYJC Class 11 online admission process will be released soon and the government will make sure that no student have to suffer.

Also, Yuva Sena chief Aaditya Thackeray met Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and asked for additional divisions for SSC board in colleges. Fadnavis has agreed to make special provision for more seats/division in colleges only for this year to accommodate SSC students.

Fadnavis also agreed to reinstate the internal assessment marks of the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) students from this academic year. The internal evaluation of 20 marks was discontinued last year.
