More than 17,000 students still not allotted FYJC seat

PUBLISH DATE 16th August 2018

The last few weeks, FYJC aspirant Poonam Nirgude, a Malad resident, has been visiting the education department’s office at Charni Road almost every day. With a score of 80% in SSC, she is among the 59,863 students who have yet not secured admission to a junior college despite four rounds. There are 17,528 students who haven’t yet been allotted a seat even once.

Nirgude was allotted a college in the first merit list but the fees were thrice of what was mentioned on the site and so she did not take admission. “My parents couldn’t afford it, so I took a chance. But since I did not take admission to the college listed as my first preference, I have to wait for the first-come-first-serve rounds expected to happen at the month-end,” she said.

In the four admission rounds, of the 2.4 lakh students who had registered, 1.2 lakh have been admitted through the centralized process and 59,863 students have taken admission under various quotas. For the rest, the special round merit list will be announced at 11 am on August 18.

As the process drags on and junior colleges have started classes, parents are having a tough time keeping children calm. “My son has scored 76% but hasn’t got a seat in the four rounds. His friends have started going to college and the anxiety is only growing. There were two days when he refused to eat at times,” said the mother of a class X Cambridge student.

Similarly, the worry has forced students to alter college choices. “I’ve been patient for four rounds as I had my eyes set on a few colleges but many high scorers are also waiting. So, I had to pick a few lesserknown colleges for the special round so that I am not left out. My parents said I might be able to change to a college of my choice in class XII,” said an ICSE student with a score of 68%.

Education officials and junior college heads, however, advise students to concentrate on securing a seat irrespective of the college. “Students must grab whatever college is allotted to them in the special merit list. Waiting for the first-come-first-serve rounds might be very risky and one might have to settle for a college the student did not want at all,” said Vidyadhar Joshi, vice-principal, VG Vaze College, Mulund.
