How to do 2015 F.Y.J.C. online admission Mumbai region

Confused about how to apply for 2015-2016 admission to FYJC at a Mumbai college? This article explains the online procedure for the admission after Std.X exam results and provides the schedule for the various steps of the procedure.

The Std.X Maharashtra State Board SSC exam results will be declared real soon. Then comes the stress of getting admission to a good Mumbai University college in the Mumbai region. The stress is even more due to the procedure for admission going online since last number of years! The actual process itself may not be complicated, but there is invariably a lot of chaos. In fact, many students often end up getting admission to a college not really of their first choice. Yet, there is no way out as it is mandatory to get FYJC admission through the online process only. It is important to note here that this online process makes provision only for a seat in the first year junior college (FYJC) degree program & not in the actual subjects. The student's choice of subjects will depend entirely on the college's number of seats which are available for those subjects.

Further, the online admissions is only for students of Arts, Science, and Commerce streams. For the following, the admissions are not done through the online process but through the respective junior colleges:

  1. Admissions to HSC Vocational (MCVC), Home Science.

  2. Admissions to management quota, minority quota and in-house quota.

  3. Admissions to Technical Junior Colleges.

  4. Admissions to Night Junior Colleges.

Important news update as of 22/05/2015: Note that this year the online admission process was delayed.

Nevertheless, it is advisable that students take help from their own school to get training on how to go about the admission process. Also, there are 75 guidance centers (see useful links at the end of this article) available for assisting in the procedure.

Step by Step guidance to Mumbai Junior College admissions

There are 3 phases in the admission process:
  1. Phase 1: Obtain the FYJC admissions booklet from your school or guidance center. The fee is Rs.150. Keep this booklet very carefully as it contains the password required for the online process. You can change this password when you log in and may need this password again later if you find a mistake in the first form which you fill up. Now go online at: Fill up the requisite security answers. Fill out the first form in which you need to provide personal details.

  2. Phase 2: This phase begins when the exam results are declared. In this phase, you need to submit a list of colleges to which you wish to apply, in order of preference.

  3. Phase 3: This is the admission process, wherein you take provisional admission in the college which lists your name in their first merit list. If it is absent from the first list, you have to wait for the 2nd merit list. In case you choose a second college through betterment option, you need to cancel the admission to the first college.

Note: For details of steps refer to this section at the website: Applicant and Parent >> Introduction >> Phases & steps in the process.

Understanding the Preference Forms

In all, there are 3 preference forms, first for the MMR, then for the zone and lastly for the ward.
  1. First form: In this form, you can make up to 30 maximum college choices (minimum is 15) from the Mumbai region (it is officially known as MMR, or the Mumbai Metropolitan Region).

  2. Second form: In this form, you need to select a college from the zonal area. Here, you can make up to 20 college choices (minimum is 15).

  3. Third form: In this form, you need to select from your specific ward area. Here, you can make up to 15 college choices (minimum 5).

Important Notes
  • You can fill up only one form.

  • You can select up to 2 streams.

  • The junior college code number will vary depending on the type (whether it is aided or unaided), stream and medium of instruction. Hence, one college may have multiple code numbers. So make sure you put in the correct code number of that college as per the stream, etc.

  • The college will issue 3 merit lists on the basis of scores, category and your order of preference.

  • In case you wish to apply under the Sports quota or a special quota (such as cultural quota or quota for a ward of ex-serviceman or quota for handicapped persons), you must attach all the relevant documents (simply listing your achievements is not sufficient). If you fail to attach the documents, you will be considered to be in the open merit category

  • In case you with to apply under the reservations category, you will need to submit the requisite caste certificate which has been issued by the official authority as appointed by the Govt. of Maharashtra. If you fail to submit the requisite certificate, your application will be considered to be in the open category.

  • Form revisions: The only form wherein you can make changes in case of errors is the first form, namely the registration form. No changes can be made in the options section forms. To make changes in this form, you will need to (a) Go to a guidance center to revise it; (b) Use the password that comes with the admissions booklet; (c) Make the revision.

After the online process

Here's what to do after you have completed the entire online admission procedure:
  1. Check out the merit lists put up by the junior college.

  2. When you see your name on the merit list of a college, you should immediately obtain provisional admission to that college. Submit the requisite documents (original + photocopies) during the dates schedule mentioned (college will take Rs.50/- as payment for this provisional admission). Make sure that the college gives you the 'Admission Confirmation Letter'. In case later you use the betterment option & cancel the admission, you will receive a 'Admission Cancellation Letter'. The documents are required to be submitted at the time of admission:
    1. The original marks List of Std. X or equivalent exam.

    2. The original School Leaving Certificate.

    3. The original Hall Ticket (for CBSE students only).

    4. The original Caste Certificate.

    5. Requisite certificates for Sports, Art & Culture if applicable.

    6. Requisite documents in the case of students who are wards of the employees of a State Government/Central Government/Private Sector coming on transfer to MMR.

    7. Requisite certificates in case of students who are wards of Servicemen and Ex-Servicemen.

    8. Requisite certificate in case of students who are wards of Freedom Fighters.

    9. In the case of a physically handicapped student, it is required to submit a certificate issued by the Civil Surgeon or the Dean of any Government/Municipal hospital, showing at least 40% disability. Students with learning disability should submit a certificate issued by the competent authority.

  3. The provisional admission is important as it gives you an opportunity to be eligible for the betterment option (that is, you can select if you so wish another college from the merit lists).

  4. All those who avail of provisional admission are eligible for the betterment option. Those who do not take provisional admission are likely to be out of the admission process altogether.

  5. Use the betterment option wisely. Simply because you got a college which you had given a higher place on your preference list in the zone & ward forms does not imply that you need to join that college only. You can compare the 2 colleges and decide.

Admission process Tips

  • Do not select order of preference for a college at random. Be very clear about your choice, both in terms of the college & the course (even though you are not selecting subjects, you need to know the courses offered by the college).

  • First & foremost consider your own abilities & future career. If you do not, for example, have technical drawing skills, it makes no sense to list an architecture college as a preference. Similarly, if you are planning a career in the pharmacy field, it makes no sense to give a preference for a college which offers only commerce courses.

  • Find out the possible cut-off percentage of a college based on the previous year's cut-off marks.

  • It is an excellent idea to make a list of the colleges you would like to join. Then go visit the campus itself instead of merely looking at the college website photos & campus details. A physical visit will help you to gauge and compare the infrastructure & facilities. For example, if you are going to join a computer science stream, check out the computer labs and whether there are enough computers for the number of students taken in. Next, meet the faculty too to know the course details, project work involved if any, marking schemes per se, etc. You can even approach ex-students and get first hand feedback for a comprehensive college review.
