After the completion of the admission in the fourth round of Maharashtra FYJC Admissions, the special round of admission will now begin from August 13, 2018. The first special round for admission to First Year Junior College (FYJC) is scheduled to begin from Monday, i.e. August 13. As per the latest schedule published yesterday, it was claimed that the students who have been allotted colleges in the fourth round can confirm their admissions on Friday, i.e. today by 6 pm.
Due to this, the deputy director has extended the dates and now students can affirm their admission till August 10, at 6 pm. The timetable discharged said that the junior universities, both minority, and non-minority, can surrender their saved minority seats, in-house share seats and administration amount seats which are lying empty regardless of numerous round of school-level confirmations between August 9 and 11.
The fourth round merit list was announced on August 7 and the students were given two days to confirm their admissions. While August 9 was the second day to do so, due to the Maratha Kranti Morcha bandh in the state, the collector had asked schools and colleges to be shut.
The special round is open for the candidates who have not been designated any universities yet and for students who were assigned a college preference other than their first in the inclination list yet they didn't affirm their affirmation there. Anyway, the special round isn't for students who were assigned their first preference of college in any of the four rounds.
“Students who were allotted their first preference should have taken admission in that college. The special round is not for such students. Those students who were allotted their first preference and did not take admission there should wait till the end of the special round. A new schedule will be announced post it and such students will then be eligible to apply under the First Come First Serve basis,” stated Minakshi Raut in a written statement.
