FYJC Third Merit List 2017 Announced on Friday: 47, 956 students allocated seats in the FYJC Third RoundTo a surprise for all, mumbai.11thadmission.net has announced the fyjc third merit list mumbai and pune.11thadmission.net has announced the fyjc third merit list pune a day earlier than scheduled. As fyjc 3rd merit list was to be released on 29th July but it was released a day earlier i.e on 28th July 2017.
More than 50,000 students are still out of seat in first year junior college (FYJC) admissions after the declaration of fyjc third merit list 2017 announced a day early on Friday evening. There are few seats but more takers in the arts stream and this is the reason that drove up the fyjc cut-off for the third time. FYJC Commerce cut-offs are higher in some colleges, while those of science are down by 2%-3%.
Out of the 98,000 students, who had not secured admissions, 47, 956 students are now allocated seats in the fyjc third merit list 2017. Commerce stream had the highest number of seat allocations (31,745), then by 12, 285 seats allocations in science, and somewhat more than 3,000 in arts. Around 400 students bagged the vocational courses.
At KJ Somaiya College of Arts and Commerce, Vidyavihar, the fyjc cut-off for arts increased to 80% from 78.2% . This is probably the very first time that arts stream is seen with high cut-offs with every list announced as compared to last year, when the cut off marks had dropped after each passing round. Sudha Vyas, principal of KJ Somaiya College of Arts and Commerce, said, “Arts stream is really in demand this time but there are not much seats available, which is increasing the cut-offs.”
Same can be said about other reputed colleges like Ramniwas Ruia, Matunga, where arts cut-off increased up by a few points — from 93.2% to 93.33%. DG Ruparel’s cut-off increased from 82.6% to 82.83%. But looking at other way, St Xavier’s cut-offs, dropped from 93.8% to 93.5%.
But colleges are of the view now that the arts cut-offs may fall in the fyjc fourth round after seats reserved for scheduled castes and schedules tribes are merged with the open seats. Vidyadhar Joshi, principal, Vaze-Kelkar College, Mulund said, “Arts cut-offs are increasing because there are fewer seats this year. The number of seats will definitely going to increase after the unfilled reserved seats are merged with the general category and this will bring down the cut-offs.”
Commerce cut-offs rose some points in Vaze-Kelkar College, Mulund, to 80.4% from the fyjc second list at 78.2%. Cut offs dropped at Narsee Monjee, Vile Parle (from 91.6% to 91.4%) and Jai Hind, Churchgate (from 89.2% to 89.16%). At RA Podar, cut-offs remained the same at 91.2% and HR College, Commerce, did not come up with the third merit list as all its seats were filled in the second round.
Science cut-offs saw a fall. At Pace Junior Science College, Andheri, science cut offs dropped from 82.33% to 75.4%. The science cut-off dropped to 89% from 90.8% at Ruia college, and Sathaye, Vile Parle closed admissions at 84.6%, much below than its second list at 87.8%.
