There is a slight downfall in the second cut-off list compared to the first list for admissions to degree courses in city colleges in the FYJC Admission 2019.

In HR College, the cut-off is 93.60 per cent for BCom compared to 96 per cent in the first list.
Principal Parag Thakkar said “High cut-offs for BCom has generally been the case since the past few years and has not dropped below 90 at our college”. “The dip in second merit list is by 1-2 per cent as expected. This is due to the fact that for placements, companies consider BCom at par with other commerce courses. The specialisation is not given as much importance as skills developed by the student.”
KC College saw the drop in BCom cut-off from first list to second list at just 1 per cent, from 92 to 91 per cent. BSc saw a drop of 9 per cent, from 74 per cent to 65 per cent. “The dip in self-financed courses is about 1-2 per cent, and for science it is down by 5-7 per cent. For other courses, the dip is by four to five per cent.” said, Principal Hemlata Bagla.
RA Poddar College principal Shobhana Vasudevan said “BMS has seen stable this year. For Commerce, we have about 150 seats for outsiders, and the rest are filled with in-house students”.
Jai Hind College Principal Ashok Wadia said, “As students are cautious about securing seats, they apply for all possible options… Our number of applications for BMS and BMM is humongous. Whereas our seats for BA are almost full. This year, the number of outstation students are almost one fourth of all students.”
