Admissions So Far
For 2019, approximately 1.85 lakh students have applied for admissions to FYJC classes through the CAP / Centralized Admission Process. In the first merit list which was announced earlier in the month, a total of 1.34 lakh students were offered admission to different colleges based in Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). However, so far, only 61,645 students confirmed their admissions after the first round.
Introduction of New Quotas
As per the expert analysis, the introduction of new quota systems, i.e. 12% reservation for Maratha Quota and 10% reservation for EWS candidates, the non-minority colleges are expected to record higher cut-offs, on the same lines as registered after the announcement of first merit list 2019. According to the Junior College Principals, introduction of Maratha and EWS quota has further reduced the number of seats available in open category to the students. Therefore, the Open Category Cut-offs are expected to remain higher and invite fierce competition for allotment of seats.
Cut-offs Expected to Rise
Commenting upon the development, Vidyadhar Joshi, vice-principal, VG Vaze College, Mulund said that ““We are not expecting a major dip in the cut-offs, from the first list. With very few seats left across streams, only a few more students might make the cut in the second list”. Similarly, Satram Verhani, principal, CHM college, Ulhasnagar also stated that they have already filled around 70 to 80% of the seats on offer. The remaining seats will also see higher cut-offs this year due to introduction of new quota systems. Many experts have also hinted that in all likelihood the cut-offs for unaided colleges will dip by 2-3%, because there are a few seats left there.
