In order to have fair and impartial admission process, the Bombay High Court ordered FYJC admission to be conducted online.
However, students are likely to miss the first year junior colleges (FYJC) online admission for the academic year 2016, because of delay in the declaration of class 10 supplementary re-test exam result, which was held in July this year.
Since the final round of online admission to FYJC commences on Monday, the education department may hold a separate round of admission process for the students who didn't apply earlier due to late declaration of Secondary School Certificate (SSC) results.
Students anxious over FYJC
Students are worried that even if the department holds separate admission process, they might face limited colleges to choose for this academic year
One excited student said, "Vacant seats remain only in the smaller colleges that are not popular among students. Few seats that opened up in coveted ones will fill up by the final round."
"We are worried about these students and we are considering the possibility of holding a separate round for them once the results are announced," said BB Chavan, deputy director of education, Mumbai region.
It's been circulated that the admission portal for the final round will be open till Tuesday 11:58 pm, and in the following day, i.e. Wednesday, the final merit list of the students will announce. The department also notified that there will be no offline admission this academic year. The students may pay their fees and confirm their admission on 1st and 2nd Sept.
