FYJC admission 2020 : 65K students get their forms verified in 2 days

FYJC Admission 2020 - Around 65,000 students in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) got their forms verified on the 11thadmission.org.in online website for first-year junior college (FYJC) admissions while more than 2 lakh students successfully register themselves.

The entire Standard 11th admission process is online this year due to the Corona pandemic. After students submit the part 1 of their admission forms, these forms need to be verified online either by their respective schools or the guidance centres appointed by the state education department.

Manystudents were of the view that the overall process of registration and form filling was smooth, though some student had issues with the payment gateway. One of the parents said, “We could fill the form in 15 minutes but it took almost an entire day to make the payment. The payment gateway showed failed payment attempts again and again. This is one thing that needs to be fixed.”

Education department said the payment issue only existed for a brief period on the first day only and has been solved out completely. A notice has been put up on the 11th Standard admission website which says, “Parents should wait in case the gateway shows failed payment. If an excess amount is deducted, the payment gateway would reverse the amount to the account within 3 working days,”

The education department is yet to put up a schedule for filling part 2 of the form, which consists of students’ marks and college preferences.
