With the first round of FYJC online admission ending on Thursday,over 25,000 students are awaiting admissions to junior colleges. These students are now looking forward to the second merit list to be declared on June 30 ,with the hope that the cut-offs marks will fall.
According to the figures submitted by the office of the Deputy Director of Education (Schools),almost 1.72 lakh students were allotted seats across all boards in Mumbai metropolitan region. However only 1,060,56 students confirmed by Thursday evening with junior colleges that they were allotted seats in first list. This means that 65,999 students who have yet to confirm their seats even on last day of first round of online admissions will be automatically out of online admission process for not securing seats they were allotted.
Students were supposed to take provisional admissions and confirm seats as per rule. This would have kept them in online process which would have allowed them get a seat in a college of their choice in the second list. Furthermore not all students who have not confirmed their seats in first merit list will be out of online admission process. There may be students who must have got admissions in the offline (Quota) process and so would have preferred not to secure admission through online process, said N B Chavan,deputy director of school education.
