Now that the SSC results have been declared, students will be eager to get admission to the various junior colleges. They do not have to stand in serpentine queues, though, as all admissions to the F.Y.J.C. (First Year Junior College) classes in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) are being done online only. This online application process was opened on 2nd May 2013 and can be done up to 15th June 2013. The instructions for the online admissions are available in the information booklet which the schools provided to their students. Make sure that you have this information booklet and take help from your school to fill in the online application form.
The online application formalities will be completed only after you have clicked on the submit/confirm button at the end of Part II (the option form). Hence don't leave the application process half-way after only Part I. Merely clicking on the submit/confirm button at the end of Part I does not complete the process.
The schedule dates for applying is provided at the end of this article. First please read the instructions below.
