Mumbai: Popular colleges in the city still have a good number of vacant seats for the remaining students despite the fact that the first general merit list is out.

Close to 70,000 students are still waiting to secure a seat in first year junior college (FYJC) while around 50,600 have managed to get admission through the first list.

Students seeking admissions in the next round can refer the vacancy and cut-off lists before selecting their new list of preferred colleges, and submit their forms before July 13. As per the new revised schedule released by the state education department, the second merit list will be put up at 11am on July 16.

According to principals of city colleges and the report declared by the department, a good number of seats are still there for the remaining students.

St. Xavier’s College has around 48 seats remaining in the science stream while Jai Hind College at Churchgate has 152 seats vacant.

Similarly for the commerce stream, KC College has 63 seats while NM College has 107 seats. Students can check the vacant seats on the FYJC admissions’ website and accordingly, update their form for the second merit list.

In the first list, around 1.2 lakh students were allotted seats, out of a total 2.3 lakh students. However, students who did not get their desired college in the list or are unhappy with the college they were allotted can wait for the next list.

A principal of a Mumbai Central-based college said, “We got more students than expected and if this continues for the second list too, we will be full and will probably start lectures for Class 11 students.”

As per the recent decision of the department, colleges can start classes once 70 per cent seats are occupied.
