FYJC First General Merit List 2020

FYJC First General Merit List 2020

The state education department has extended the deadline for students to complete the second part of the application for admissions to first-year junior colleges (FYJC) to August 25. The earlier deadline for filling up the form, which consists college preferences, was August 22.

An official from the education department said, “This extension is only for students who have already filled their forms but are yet to finalise and lock them due to some or the other reasons”.

Students, who have registered on the 11thadmisson.org.in portal and applied for admissions under various quotas but have failed to validate the one time password (OTP) to confirm their seats, will be given time until August 25 to update their status. Earlier, the entire process for quota admissions was supposed to be complete by August 22.

A circular was issued which says, “If a student does not get an OTP due to a technical reason, he/she should not be denied admission solely for this. Time will be given until August 25 to update it.”

This year, the Standard 11th admission process for FYJC has been made zero contact because of the covid-19 pandemic. While admissions under various quotas like minority, management and in-house generally have to be done at the college level, the education department has been facilitating them to make the process zero contact.

Students get an OTP on their registered mobile numbers. The colleges then call the students on the number and feed in the OTP in the online database to confirm a seat. As OTPs are time-bound, several colleges and students struggled to complete the process. In view of this, the department has now removed the time limit on entering OTPs.

The office of the deputy director will release the fyjc first general merit list 2020 on August 25 consisting details of all students so that they can verify and rectify in case of any error. 2.26 lakh students had filled their college preferences until Sunday.
