The Second and Third Merit Lists will be released on July 04 and July 11 respectively, on FYJC’s official website mentioned above. Although there is a strong murmur that the board is contemplating a fourth merit list, there has been no official announcement about the same.

“If students remain without a seat even after the third list, then we will announce a fourth list or directly allot them seats in colleges that have vacancies,” said a senior official from the Deputy Directorate of Education, Mumbai region.

According to a report from the Deputy Director of Education, of the 2.2 lakh applications received, 1.84 lakh students secured first-class scores whereas more than 47,000 students made it to the first merit list announced on Monday.

According to the details of the First Merit List released by the department, the cut-off percentages for admissions to first year junior colleges (FYJC) in Mumbai were higher than last year’s, especially for the Arts and Commerce streams.

At K C College, Churchgate, the cut-offs for Arts has increased from 85.2 per cent to 88.4 per cent, a jump of more than three per cent. For Commerce, the cut-offs were 91.5 per cent (aided) and 90.83 (unaided), up from last year’s 90.8 and 89.2 respectively. Admissions to FYJC Science at KC College will close at 91 per cent.

At H R College of Commerce and Economics, Churchgate the cut-off remained similar to last year’s at 93.4 per cent.

Similarly, at Jai Hind College, Churchgate, the Arts cut-off is 91.4 per cent; for Commerce, it is 91.8 and for Science, it is 90.6 per cent. Admissions to Arts stream at Royal College, Mira Road, will close at 90.6 per cent and 87.33 per cent for Mithibai College, Vile Parle.

The higher cut-offs can be attributed to the higher number of students scoring well in Class X board exams.

At D G Ruparel College, Matunga, the cut-off for Arts has gone up by two percent to 86.6. For Science, the cut-off at 91.8 is a per cent lower than last year. The Commerce cut-off has reduced marginally.

The entire intake capacity of R A Podar College of Commerce and Economics — 874 seats — has been included in the first merit list, said Principal Shobhana Vasudevan. The admission closes at 91.8 per cent, marginally lower than last year’s 92.

In Pune also, most colleges have recorded a slight increase in the overall cut-off which principals say is mainly due to in-house quotas. According to the available details, about 52,616 students out of the total 82,106 who applied in Pune have been given allotments in the first round. Nearly 30,000 students still await their turn.

The First Merit List in Pune also showed that the cut-off marks in top city colleges have been increased by at least two per cent which officials attribute to decrease in open category seats due to newly introduced in-house quota in many colleges and the overall increase in marks scored by students due to the sports quota marks.
