After two weeks of online application,as students gear up to check their names in the general merit list for admissions to junior colleges that will be declared on Tuesday,there were still approximately 7,000 students who had not yet submitted their online applications on the website fyjc.org.in/mumbai by Monday evening. As a result,all those students who submitted their forms at the submission centres on Monday,will be considered for admissions in the second merit list and not included in the first round.
While many of these students had already taken admission through minority quota in colleges and hence did not submit application in other colleges,there were still some who had filled up forms but did not care to submit their forms and make sure that they were accepted by Maharashtra Knowledge Corporation Ltd (MKCL) till they were intimated by MKCL on Monday through SMSes. Most of these students are from outside Mumbai.
Despite the education department extending the deadline for online application,students came into submission centres as late as Monday to submit their filled-up forms.
Mayur Gaikwad,a student from Nagpur who came to submit his form to Hinduja College,Charni Road,said he could not do so earlier because he had not got his school leaving certificate. Around 20 students like Gaikwad came to Hinduja College on Monday to submit their forms. T Shiware,principal of Hinduja College said,We tried to submit the forms online on Monday,however,the link to do so on the website was deactivated. We have been instructed by the Deputy Director of Education to consider new submissions for the second round of admissions. The link to submit forms online is likely to be activated before the second merit list is displayed.
V Wankhede,Deputy Director of Education,Mumbai said,We sent text messages to students asking them to submit forms on Monday. Several students out of the 7,000 had secured admission in minority quota or the management quota and did not bother to submit the forms.
The merit list will be available at the respective submission centres,the college where the student has been allotted a seat and on the MKCL website on Tuesday at 1 pm. The student should contact the college in which his name appears in the first merit list according to his marks and confirm his admission. It is mandatory for every student to confirm his admission. A student who fails to secure admission in allocated college will be out of the admission process. If a students name comes in the merit list of two streams,then the student can take admission only for one stream and his name will be automatically deleted from the other stream. If a student takes admission according to the first merit list and gets into the second or third merit list of another college,which is preferentially above the college where he has already taken admission,the student can cancel his admission. Students can use the betterment option only once.
The admission forms will be issued to students free of charge.
