Mumbai: In the ongoing last round of admissions to first year junior college (FYJC), students and parents feel that “every minute is crucial” since seats are going from vacant to full within minutes. As per officials of the state education department which is managing the FYJC admissions, this round is being taken the most seriously as it is the students’ last chance, failing which, they will lose the entire academic year. This third round of the first come, first serve (FCFS) will end on Friday.

“Since the third round of the FCFS panel was activated, my dad and me have been glued to the computer, looking for colleges and seats. Thankfully, before the round started, I went to a guidance centre to understand how to carry out this process which helped me secure a seat in a good college at Andheri,” said Prakit Pardeshi, a commerce aspirant based in Khar.

Hundreds of other students, like Prakrit, are taking similar guidance as the department has warned them this is their last chance. Anjana Kumra, another student who is seeking admission in the arts stream, said, “Before this, I wasn’t allotted any college maybe because of some error in my form so I re-verified my form before this round began. I sat for three straight hours looking for a seat after which, I was finally allotted a seat and today (Wednesday), I confirmed my seat by taking admission.”

A special notice has been put up on the official website of FYJC saying, “Since this round is a FCFS round, seats which are visible as vacant might get filled up immediately as they may get allotted to another student who applies for them.”

The special notice, about the cancellation of admission, further says, “If the student cancels his or her admission, he or she shall be solely responsible. Therefore, students are requested to cancel their admission thoughtfully.”
