Thousands who applied online for junior college admission waited with bated breath on Tuesday as the first merit list was declared. As many as 1,75,000 of the 2,13,000 who had applied were allotted seats.

The deputy director of education,Mumbai region,has strictly instructed all students who have been allotted seats to take admission in the allocated college. A student who fails to secure admission in the allocated college will be out of the admission process. In case a student gets into the first merit list of both streams that he has chosen,then it is mandatory for him to take admission in either of the streams. Also,if a student gets admission in the first merit list of a college,and also in a college which is preferentially above that college,then the student can cancel his admission and secure admission in the college of his choice. However,he will be able to use the betterment option only once.

Students who were allocated seats were informed by an SMS early in the morning. There were many who received a message which read “In view of your merit and college preferences,a seat could not be allotted to you in 1st round. Please do not get disheartened and wait for the declaration of second allocation list”.       

Gunjan Malhotra,has been allotted a seat in St Andrews college which came fourth in the preference list that she had filled in her online form. Hopeful of getting into her top choices — Mithibai College,Vile Parle and Jai Hind College,Churchgate— in the second or third merit list,Gunjan has decided not take admission in St Andrews but instead wait for the next lists. Her friend Gurushish Kohli,however,is worried as he has not been allocated a seat in the first round. Kohli has scored 77 % and wants to get into the science stream.“I will wait for the second merit list. I have no other choice,” he said.

Many students could not get into their favourite colleges in the first round due to mistakes in filling the order of preferences in the forms.

“I will wait for the second merit list. Till then I have no other choice but to wait,” he said. V Wankhede,deputy director of education,Mumbai region,said,“There were minor complaints from some students. For instance,there were some students who complained that others who had got lesser marks were allotted seats in some colleges but they weren’t. But the seats have been allotted as per the preferences. If students have any complaints,they can write to their submission or zonal centres or to us. We will sort out their problems.”
