The Department of Education had organised three regular and two special rounds for the admission of first-year junior college (FYJC). The second special round will end on January 9. Earlier, it was scheduled to conclude on Friday, January 8.

In Mumbai, more than 10,000 students are without seats after these rounds, despite there being nearly 1.3 lakh vacant seats in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) as the second round is about to conclude.

However, education department has decided to give admissions to FYJC students on a first come, first served (FCFS) basis in Mumbai and Maharashtra. This will benefit students who have not been able to secure admission in the college.

According to data shared by Gaikwad, 42 per cent of the total seats lying vacant after five admission rounds are in six regions – Amravati, Aurangabad, Mumbai, Nagpur, Nashik and Pune – where admissions to FYJC is online. Similarly, 23 per cent of the total 4.15 lakh students who have applied for seats are yet to take admission anywhere.

On Wednesday, January 6, state education minister Varsha Gaikwad tweeted, “Admissions under the second special merit list will conclude on January 8 after which the schedule for FCFS round will be announced.”

While the department had earlier decided to do away with the FCFS rounds this year, the decision was revoked owing to a large number of students still without seats after five admission rounds.

By the end of the first special round, out of a total intake of 5.6 lakh, as many as 3.2 lakh students had confirmed their admissions; 2.4 lakh seats were still vacant. Meanwhile, in MMR, over 58,318 students were not admitted according to the data shared by the education minister’s office. Out of which, only 32,268 participated in the second special round, while only 21,835 were allotted a seat.

The government had introduced FCFS rounds in 2018 and students with a score above 80 per cent, 60 per cent and the rest were assigned a day to claim a seat like one would book a tatkal train ticket.
