FYJC Students were not given admission this academic year-The Centralised Admission Process (CAP)’s fourth merit list was out on Monday for the First year junior College (FYJC) admissions. The chaos continued as 142 students did not get admission despite 10,000 seats was vacant.
The crowd kept mounting in front of the Deputy Director of Education (DyDE) office, despite this, the senior officials of CAP committee fled away. The students were insisted not to crowd the office and instead register a complaint at Rosary Junior College or St. Andrews College.
On inquiring one of the students why the student did not get admission, he said “Four lists are out and I haven’t got admission in any college. They blame us saying that we filled wrong college information or our expectations are high regarding colleges. But the third college on my preference list had a cut off of 283 marks in first list and my marks are above 350. Why am I not getting a seat?” he asked.
The senior officials on being questioned by media, said that, “We will send a proposal to the State Government; they will take a decision,” said Dinkar Temkar, deputy director of education.
Adding to it, he also said, “We have requested them to allow us to conduct another round of admission so that the students not getting a college allotment of their choice could be given another chance. If we are given permission for the same, we shall hold this extra round. We have also requested students and parents to give a letter informing about the college choice and other details so that we can consider them on case-to-case basis.”
