Cut-offs stay high for top colleges

Contrary to expectations, announcement of the second merit list for admission to top degree colleges on Tuesday, 12th June, 2012 saw just a marginal dip of 0.5% to 2% in cut-offs. Top colleges are now sceptical whether any seats would be left for the third merit list. But students must not be disheartened, advised educationists, as most other city colleges would still have 10-30 % seats left for the third list. At Jai Hind College, most seats were taken after the announcement of the first merit list itself, leaving not more than 15 seats in each course for the second. Cut-offs stay high for top colleges

The cut-off in the second list was not very different from the first because we had very few seats left to offer, said Ashok Wadia, in-charge principal of Jai Hind College, Churchgate. The college will hold its orientation session for first-year students on 13th June, and regular lectures a day after. All those colleges where 80% of the seats have been filled will start lectures this week. Shobana Vasudevan, principal of R. A. Podar College, said they might start the academic session for first-year students from 18th June or 21st June. There would be no seats left to offer in both the courses after the second list.

After the admissions are taken tomorrow, we will get an idea about vacant seats. Students who score above 90% are mostly focused while 85-90 % scorers juggle with a lot of options, Vasudevan added. While most colleges hoped to see a major dip in cut-offs for self-financed courses, students were surprised to see the second list cut-offs at top colleges stop at 85-90 %. Other than the cut-off for BBI (bachelor in banking and insurance) course, which saw a massive dip, all the others saw a minor dip in percentage. Almost 80% of the students whose names appeared in the first list confirmed their admission.

So depending on the turnout after the second list, we will know whether there are seats left for the third list, said Manju Nichani, principal of K. C. College. At H .R. College, there was a less than 2% dip in cut-offs for all self-financed courses. Most colleges, though, told TOI that almost 30% of their seats were still available for the third merit list. First merit list always shows a drastic picture of the admissions and this slowly turns around by the third list. Students must be patient, said a senior education official.

NIOS breather
The University of Mumbai has extended the deadline for sale and submission of forms to degree courses for students from the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) whose results were announced late. Forms will be sold on June 13 and must be submitted the same day. The merit list will be announced on June 14 and fees must be paid on June 15.
