A source at the state school department said that nearly 800 to 1,000 students are yet to secure a seat because of their own mistake.
Mumbai: The state school department on Friday announced the first round for first-year junior college (FYJC) students. This round will be for all those students who have not secured a seat even after four merit rounds; two special rounds; and two first-come, first-serve (FCFS) rounds.
This round, to start on October 9 and end on October 11, too, will be on a FCFS basis and will be called FCFS 3. A source at the state school department said that nearly 800 to 1,000 students are yet to secure a seat because of their own mistake. “There are students who don’t know the procedure of this year’s admission or are dissatisfied with the colleges allocated to them. Some students have even cancelled admissions in the hope of getting a better college,” said a source.
On an earlier occasion, B.B Chavan, deputy director of education, Mumbai region, confirmed to The Asian Age that there were more than 40,000 seats in Mumbai colleges so the allotment process for students would be easy if the latter filled out their admission forms properly and as per guidelines.
