Now that the third merit list has been declared for both regions- Mumbai and Pune for FYJC admissions and over a thousand aspirants didn’t get any seat allotted; the Maharashtra education department has announced to publish a fourth merit list on Monday, July 18.
FYJC Mumbai will release it’s 4th merit list on July 18, Pune hasn’t reported on the topic so far.
The third and final merit list of FYJC admissions in Mumbai was released on July 12, at 5 PM while Pune declared the same on 13 July afternoon. FYJC 3rd merit list was earlier slated to be declared today on July 11, but the change in schedule was notified at the official site of FYJC Mumbai Metropolitan Region. The students allotted seat as per the merit list will have two days i.e. July 13 & 14, to secure admissions by paying Rs 50.
The first merit list was released on June 27, followed by second merit list publication on July 4. The students have been struggling with the soaring cut-offs this year and hence the number of admissions have been quite low. With the third merit coming in few hours, it is very likely that the cut-off will remain similar to the first and second merit lists. In the first round, a total of 1,84,977 seats were allotted against over 2.2 lakh registrations.
