Maharashtra education department had adopted the admission process for FYJC (First Year Junior College) classes in 1997 and with the passage of time, the process was made online in 2009 in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. The online process for FYJC admissions has started in Maharashtra as the results of MSBSHSE SSC annual exams were announced on June 6.
There are 3 streams of Junior Colleges; Arts, Science and Commerce in which the colleges are either Aided, Unaided, Permanent Unaided and Self financed. Students are required to submit only one application wherein they can opt for any two streams out of Arts, Science and Commerce. Students will have to feed their marks and other data as mentioned in SSC results while filling the application form for FYJC admissions.
The application form is divided into two parts; Registration form and Options form. In the part I, students will have to input their basic details while in Part II, they will have to input their marks of SSC exams along with preferences of Junior Colleges.
Upon getting all applications, a merit list will be prepared and online admission process will be carried out on the order of preferences given by applicants. There will be 3 merit lists in all. First FYJC merit list will be published on June 27 at 10.30 AM while students will have time till June 30 to secure their admissions in allotted Junior Colleges. Second and third merit list will follow on July 1 and July 11 respectively. The academic session for Std. 11 would commence on July 18.
Applicants whose names appear in the merit list of a particular junior college should fill up the admission form of that junior college and must secure a provisional admission in that junior college within the period allotted on payment of Rs 50, if failed in doing so, they will be dropped from the online admission process.
When students secure admission in the allotted Junior College, they will receive system generated ‘Admission Confirmation Letter’ from the respective Junior college. At the time of admission, students will have to submit following documents:
- Original marks list of SSC exam (Class 10)
- Original School Leaving Certificate
- Original Hall Ticket (for CBSE students only)
- Caste certificate, if applicable
