1.87 Lakh FYJC College Seats Still Lie Vacant

The second merit list for First Year Junior College (FYJC) was released on July 22 which had over 1.85 lakh applicants from the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). As the SSC students had scored less on an average as compared to their counterparts Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) and Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), the state government had increased the number of seats in many colleges.
