Education officials said that the deadline of June 27 to fill 11th admission online forms could be extended.

Since Saturday, the website was down as the servers could not take the load of lakhs of students who were filling up their college application forms.

It was done for the first time that the education department centralised admissions and the fyjc 11th admissions process was made fully online across the state of Maharashtra, but as students are facing portal issues, the students are yet to encounter a website that does not slow down on heavy usage. 11th Admissions were done online only for cities such as Mumbai and Pune.

“So, students please note that the 11th admission website will be shut on Wednesday i.e 21st June to fix the problems. Parents and students should not panic as admissions are delayed by a day. The website is shut for today as to make sure students do not face any technical difficulties while entering their college choices and filling out the online application form.” said Tawde.

More than 30,000 students who passed the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) exam have not been able to apply for 11th admissions online due to server issues.

Out of the total 2 lakh students, only 67, 289 students have completed applications. After the department got many complaints about the site slowing down and crashing, two more servers to the existing seven were added, but it still didn’t improve performance

BB Chavan, deputy director of education, Mumbai region said “The servers added by Nysa Asia were not sufficient. This is the very first time they are handling the 11th admission process for Maharashtra, so they were unaware of the traffic that would come in”. The deadline to fill Mumbai.11th forms of June 27 could be extended to June 30 near the closing date.
