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 list 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 2016-2017, 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.
