Online Admission to Colleges in Mumbai for FYJC will started this year. Students in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region applying to a junior college (FYJC) in the general (open merit) category, will have apply online through the Online Admission Process to Mumbai Colleges. Admissions to the 50% minority quota at minority institutions, and the 5% management quota, will not be online and kept out of the Online Admission Process.
The online college admission site, http://fyjc.org.in/mumbai, will be operational from June 10. Students will be able to practise filling out their application forms, before the SSC results are out. Once the results are out, a student can fill out and lock the form, print it out, and manually submit it a designated submission centre.
If a student wishes to make a change in a form that has already been locked, he can re-register online and go through the whole procedure again. The new form will have to be printed and signed by the principal. Students can apply to a maximum of 150 colleges and as many as two streams. ICSE and CBSE students will have to download the form and fill it manually. In the science and the commerce streams, students can apply to both the regular science course as well as the vocational science course. Each college will have a different code for its regular science stream and its vocational stream.
Students will receive an e-mail and sms informing them of the college they have made it to once the merit list is out. Students who opt for two streams will be informed of the college they have made it to in each stream. If a student makes it to a college that is, say fifth in his list of preferences, in the first merit list, but makes it to his number one preference in the second merit list, he can withdraw his application to first college and apply to the second. Each student will be allowed to do this only once.
Students will also have to fill out their preferences when it comes to zones in the city. If a student who has ticked on the sports quota preference does not have the necessary documents, he can opt for the general merit seats instead.
