13,793 Students Yet to Get FYJC Admissions after Second Merit List – This year Std Xth result across Maharashtra was declared with record number of passing percentage in almost every school in the state. Pune city schools also delivered fantastic passing figures which certainly added more pressure on admission process in Junior Colleges. The first merit list for Junior colleges was declared on June 27th where maximum number of students was occupied in respective colleges. But this time the admission scenario is quite different as there are still 13,793 students remaining to get admissions in Junior college. Thus students and parents are tensed and worried about their admissions in the respective colleges.
In the first round of admissions total 52,616 allotments were made in Junior colleges of Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad. The capacity in the junior colleges is 73,385 and still the waiting number is high compared to the total number of seats. According to reports from 2nd July which was the last date of Centralized Admission Process (CAP) total 36,633 students confirmed their admissions while 839 cancelled it and 190 rejected by the process. 14,954 candidates did not report to the respective colleges.
Dinkar Temkar, Deputy Director of education revealed about the admission process stating that the Second Merit List of CAP process has been announced of which 5,040 students received fresh allotments while 10,523 students have been given other options. There are students who were allotted admissions on the basis of quota system and still 14,000 students are left over with admissions in Junior college. The first round allotments received 15,563 allotments of which 3,391 students got their first preference colleges while 5,037 were allotted to second to fifth preferred colleges. Commerce English Faculty got highest number of allotments (7,074) while Science Faculty stood second with 3716 allotment
Even though high passing percentage has led to many students still to be allotted in the Junior colleges prior to second round of CAP mounting anxiety and apprehensions among students. The concern was put forth before Meenakshi Raut, assistant director of educations where she clarified the situation putting forth two reasons.
The first reason is that high number of students opted for betterment and grabbed majority of seats. These students have already taken provisional admissions in another colleges, the seats would certainly get vacate which can be accumulated by 10,523 students in the next round. Also 7000 students received admissions through quota and CAP procedure which is a double admission and thereby these seats would also be vacant in the upcoming round. So seats would remain vacant in second round and those who are left behind with admissions will surely be allotted in Second round.
The second reason is the student’s aspirations and unrealistic expectations which refrain them from getting admissions in the first list. Students opted for colleges which were above their cut off mark list and allotments were limited resulting into such distress situation.
She has announced to allotted students and their parents to check their allotment on http://pune.fyjc.org official website and confirm their provisional admissions by paying Rs.50 between July 4 and July 9 at 11 am to 4 pm.
