While some city colleges have started regular classes for first-year degree college students, admissions to degree courses at most of the institutes are still on. With seats still lying vacant in many colleges despite three merit lists, the University of Mumbai has extended the admission deadline till 30th June 2012. "Many colleges have already announced their fourth merit list and might announce a fifth if there are vacant seats. Students these days are very indecisive and cancel their admission at the last minute," said the principal of a south Mumbai college.
Most college managements fear this trend will continue till July, especially in case of Science stream students who seek admissions to engineering and medical colleges after the announcement of MH-CET results. "We are keeping a track of students' CET scores because those who have scored 150 and above usually end up taking admission in engineering colleges. This has been a trend for many years now," said Vijay Joshi, principal of K J Somaiya College in Vidyavihar. "We have a waiting list of students who have sought admission at our college and are yet to get a seat. These students will be accommodated based on the cancellations," he added. The MH-CET results were announced earlier this year, thus making it easier for students to decide on a course and college of their choice in advance. Colleges, however, are worried that even though the admissions process commenced early this year, they will end up filling seats till July-end. "Students keep applying even weeks after regular classes have begun. Colleges are used to this but it becomes very cumbersome to keep approving and cancelling admissions till July. There must be a system to put an end to this trend," added Joshi.
