According to the data released by Mumbai region MMR education departement, out of 2.17 lakh online applicants for first-year junior college (FYJC) seats, six have topped the Provisional General Merit List with 100% scores and 14,589 have scored in 90s. There are only 1.49 lakh seats in FYJC admissions.

"This means that cut-off marks in the first and second merit list, to be released on June 27 and July 4, will touch 90s in popular colleges", said officials.

The toppers are largely from the state board who have benefitted from the additional sports marks of 15 to 25. Compared to last year, the number of applicants scoring more than 95% rose to 2,066 from 1,683.

The number of students scoring between 90% and 94.99% increased to 12,523 from 11,829 last year. This includes over 10,000 from the Maharashtra state board and national boards – 3,136 from ICSE and 1,324 from CBSE.

If students score identical marks, preference will be given to those with higher marks in English or those who are older.

"If this is the plight of those with scores in their 90s, the condition of those scoring in 80s and 70s is much worse", said principals.

“Since all three important boards -- SSC, CBSE and ICSE –had good results this year, we are seeing an unprecedented hike in students scoring 90s. This means that others will find it difficult to get into coveted colleges,” said Kavita Rege, principal of Sathaye College, Vile Parle.

Academicians added that students with marks in the 80s, 70s and 60s might be allotted seats only in the third lists in coveted colleges.

“Students flock to the popular colleges so the cut-offs soar but those applying to smaller colleges will not face much problem. Their cut-offs will dip by the second or third list,” said Marie Fernandes, principal of St Andrew’s College, Bandra.

Meanwhile, students are reporting errors in the Provisional General Merit List released on Monday. It is found that none of the six students who were listed as having a perfect score actually got 100 per cent in their exams The students were left scrambling to rectify the error—Wednesday was the final day to make corrections to the forms.

Bhagyashree, the sister of Saurabh Pomendkar, a Dapoli student who was listed as having scored 100 per cent, said her brother actually scored 60 per cent.

"He filled his FYJC admission at a cybercafe. While we did not know that his name featured in the top six students, we realised that there was some error. The marks were wrongly entered," Bhagyashree said.

Officials said that a technical glitch could be responsible for mistakes in the cases of students from the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, adding that the admission centres that missed these errors will be questioned.

The First Year Junior College Merit list, a completely automated online process for admission to standard 11, has been operational since May 18, 2016. About 2.17 lakh aspirants from Mumbai region, who passed class 10th exams from various boards, had registered online to take admission in First Year Junior College (FYJC) in over 700 junior colleges and over 3,000 schools in the Mumbai metropolitan area (MMR).
