Admissions for FYJC extended till August 10

Similarly, after this, a special list will be declared for the students who couldn’t secure admissions in the previous four merit lists.


On August 7, the fourth merit list of FYJC admissions was declared. However, majority of the college teaching and non-teaching staff has participated in the strike initiated by the Bombay University and College Teachers’ Unione since August 7. 

So, for the last three days, the students have been facing a lot of trouble in securing college admissions in Mumbai and Thane. 

Looking at this, the FYJC students were given an extension to secure their admissions till August 10.

The Bombay University and College Teachers’ Union (BUCTU) declared a three-day strike on August 7 in order to oppose the unprofessional procedure of the state government and the Education Department. Several colleges and schools remained shut due to this as teachers and non-teaching staff of around 800 government-aided schools in Mumbai went on strike.

More than 50,000 students were enlisted on the fourth FYJC merit list and were given two days, i.e. Wednesday and Thursday, to secure their admissions. However, when students reached the colleges on Wednesday, the college was mostly non-functional and due to this, the procedure of their admission remained incomplete. 

Whereas on Thursday, the Maratha Morcha altered things in and around the city and so, the students demanded an extension in securing their admissions.

Accordingly, the School Education Department provided an extension till August 10 for students to secure their admissions. Meanwhile, the government will soon declare the special list for students that haven't been able to secure admissions till now.
