Pune FYJC Admission 2016: What Non-state board students needs to do

First year junior college (FYJC) admission has started and it is an easy step by step procedure for everybody especially the state board students. But students from other boards need to go with some additional procedures to be applied for a Standard XI seat in a state-board affiliated institute.

Apart from getting signed transfer certificates where the students completed Std X from the education officer of the district to getting their grades converted to marks, there are more steps a student must complete even before they start fyjc form filling admission process.

Sunil Pandit, zonal in charge of the centralized admission procedure and vice-principal, Ness Wadia College of Commerce said, "Some of the other boards like the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) give grades in the exam instead of marks. These needs to be converted into marks and checked by the head of the institute. Till now CBSE had designated four schools in Mumbai for the task. We have heard that they will appoint a school here in Pune for the work. However, no official information has come from the board yet. Now it is also mandatory for students who completed Std X from other boards from outside Pune needs to get their original school leaving certificate countersigned on the overleaf by the education officer of their respective district.

As per fyjc information booklet provided on http://pune.fyjc.org.in/, non-SSC board applicants also need to submit an application for eligibility (available with the respective higher secondary school/junior college office) along with necessary documents.
They must also get their documents verified from their school/college head and must submit their online application at any one of the guidance centres.

Meenakshi Raut, assistant director of education, Pune division, said."Students from non-state board schools from outside Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad must get their grade sheets converted to mark sheets at four centres appointed by CBSE in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai - R N Podar school, Santacruz (West), Apeejay school, Nerul in Navi Mumbai, DAV public school, Airoli, Navi Mumbai, and DAV public school, Nerul, Navi Mumbai,".

It has been mentioned in the FYJC admissions and information booklet that the students applying for admissions to quota seats in the fyjc junior colleges will first have to mandatorily fill forms part 1 and 2 online.

This is a change from the past years for junior college admissions, as students applying for first-year junior college (FYJC) admissions to quota (minority, management) seats, need to first apply for a seat through the fyjc online admission process at http://fyjc.org.in/mumbai

FYJC Form Part 1 - FYJC Form Filling online of Part 1 deals with the personal details of the student for registration.

FYJC Form Part 2 - In the FYJC Form Filling online of Part 2 also known as the option form, students need to list out their college preferences.

BB Chavan, deputy director of education, Mumbai region said, “It is now mandatory for all students to apply online for fyjc admission. Those seeking admission under quotas can then approach the colleges separately and submit a letter requesting admission. The letter must also mention their online admission registration number for reference,”.

It has been mentioned in the fyjc information booklet, that students whose names appear in the merit lists but who have already got admission via any of the management, minority or in-house quotas must cancel their admission from that quota, obtain the ‘admission cancellation letter’ and approach the junior college allotted to them in the fyjc online merit list with all the documents for completing the admission formalities.

Mr. Chavan also said, “If students get admission in any of their top preferences during the fyjc online admission process, they will have to take it. But if they get a quota seat, their name will automatically get deleted from the fyjc general merit list.”. As per Bombay High Court orders, Chavan said, “The high court wanted more transparency in the system. Earlier, we didn’t know who the colleges were admitting to quota seats, but now that every student will be registered online, we will be able to track them,”.

FYJC Online Admission 2016 Only Through Online Mode

FYJC Online Admission 2016 Only Through Online Mode

First Year Junior College (FYJC) online admissions 2016-17 will take place only through the online mode and not offline. As there are 3 fyjc merit lists announced every year, the students who do not get a college seat after the three rounds of seat allocations are over, will have to go for online counselling to get a seat.

Now from this year, all the seats are brought up to online mode by the Mumbai education department such as the minority quota seats that amount to 50%, management seats amounting to 5% and in-house quota seats (reserved for admissions of students from their own schools) amounting to 20%.

Till previous years, fyjc admissions went offline, the students who did not get a seat even after the third round had to rush directly to colleges and get a seat. After online counselling, students can view the website to know which of the colleges have still vacant seats. Then seats will be allotted manually as per merit.

Of the 2.64 lakh students registered for online FYJC admissions 2015-2016, 70,000 students got themselves allotted offline into colleges after the first round itself to secure admissions . Some students opted for 35 colleges as preference in the fyjc online admission. Those students also selected very prestigious colleges as one of their preferences. These students do not get seats. But as students filled around 35 options, they managed to get a seat in some college. This move came after Mumbai High Court questioned why the fyjc admissions were offline, thus now the move is aimed at bringing transparency in FYJC admissions.

Now their will be no offline admissions for FYJC.

All students will now need to secure their admissions only via online mode, so its utmost necessary for a student to register for it, as you cannot hold education department responsible for this. From this year, the fyjc admission for 2016 for all students in the general quota along with minority, management and in-house quota admissions will be made only through online mode.

So, from now onwards, “The education department could also monitor minority colleges admissions as was not the case earlier" said Rajendra Ahire, Assistant Director of Education, Mumbai region.

The FYJC registration process 2016-17 starts May 15 where students can fill part one of the form. It is only after the Maharashtra SSC results 2016 are announced, you can fill Part two the form.

This is the FYJC Online Admission 2016 Process
