The education department will announce the FYJC first (general) merit list on Friday at 5 pm. With 8,127 students confirming their admissions with various colleges under the bifocal category, over 1.9 lakh students are now waiting for the general merit lists to get a seat in a college as well as stream of their choice.
The FYJC general merit lists will consider all those students who have already sought admission in various city colleges under various quotas as well as the bifocal category. Students who still wish to change their preference of college and want a seat in the general category have the option of surrendering their bifocal seat and confirming their admissions under the general category, said an official from the education board. As the number of students who scored over 90% has shot up this year, colleges fear high cut-off. The cut-offs for bifocals shot up this year in most colleges and this trend will follow in the general lists too, said T Shivare, principal of Hinduja College at Charni Road.Many principals believe that the cut-offs for the general category might also go higher that the bifocal cutoffs. A very large number of 90% scorers have applied this year and we are pretty sure the cut-offs will remain high, said Indu Shahani, principal of HR College in Churchgate. Some colleges are also being approached by students and parents in order to help them get a seat in their preferred course. Parents don’t understand that colleges have no role to play in the online admission process. All the lists are prepared by the education department and we receive the lists at the same time as the students do online. Even after explaining this to parents, they still show up at our doors for help, said a principal of a suburban college.
