How to do 2016 F.Y.J.C. online admission Mumbai region

Confused about how to apply for 2016-2017 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 ICSE exam results will be declared real soon. Then will start the process of getting admission to one of the good colleges in Mumbai affiliated to Mumbai University. It is mandatory now to get FYJC admission through the online process only. That is, you must avail of the online process to obtain a seat in the first year junior college (FYJC) degree program.

This year, there are new procedures for your college admissions. The online admissions are for Arts, Science and Commerce streams. However, admissions to HSC Vocational (MCVC), Home Science, Technical junior colleges and night junior colleges, admissions will be done by the respective junior colleges.

New procedure for Mumbai Junior College admissions

  1. At the time of applying for admission you will be given a Unique Identification Number (UID). This UID will be a useful feature to track whether or not you have secured admission to a college via the online mode or offline.

  2. You must take admission to a college which was allotted to you through the online process. If you make an attempt to obtain admission to a college which was not allotted to you, then the UID will ensure that the college cannot confirm that admission. So, unlike earlier, you do not have the option of cancelling your provisional admission allotted to you online and then opting for a college of your choice offline.

  3. This year all colleges must complete the minority quota admissions before the general category admissions begin. This will ensure that those who get seats under this quota can then move out of the online system. In case you wish to cancel your minority admission to secure admission in a college allotted online, then you will need to submit an admission cancellation letter.

  4. Colleges must keep seats under the management quota open till the last round. So in case you do not get admission to a college of your preference during online or offline admissions, you have the opportunity to apply for a seat under the management quota.

  5. All admissions will be closely monitored by specially appointed third-party auditors. This will ensure that seats are filled up on the basis of a student's merit.

  6. This year there is no process of instructing colleges to stamp original documents of students once they are granted admission through the online process. This was the earlier idea for the admission process, but was not implemented as it was heavily opposed.

  7. You must be very careful to select your college while filling in the application form online. It is advisable to select those colleges whose cut-off percentage is 5% less than your expected score. This will be more realistic and you will likely ensure that you do not get admission to a college which was not in your top preference.

  8. Offline admissions are likely to be opened only after the entire online process of admission ends.

Step by Step guidance to Mumbai Junior College admissions

  1. First and foremost, you need to collect the admission information booklet from your school. The booklet cost is Rs.150/-.

  2. Next, go to the official website http://fyjc.org.in/mumbai/. Here, use the log in ID and password which has been provided in the admission booklet you purchased.

  3. Fill in the requisite information for Part 1 of the admission process. That is, in this part you will be filling in your personal details for the registration. You can start filling in the details right away and do not need to wait for your Std. X 2016 exam results.

  4. As soon as you get your Std. X exam results, you can move on to Part 2 of the admission process. In this part, you will be filling up what is known as the 'Option Form'. That is, you are submitting your college preferences (the colleges where you would like to study). It would be a good idea to check information and reviews of the various colleges before selecting your preferences.

Preference selection

Students should note that a college may have more than one code number on the basis of the stream, type, set and medium of instruction. Make sure you are aware of the fee structure and the medium of instruction of the college you select.

There are essentially 3 parts to the preference selection of the college:
Part 1: minimum 15 and maximum 30 can be given
Part 2: select any one zone first, then select minimum 15 and maximum 20 (excluding preferences made in Part 1)
Part 3: select any 2 wards/sectors, then select minimum 5 and maximum 10 (excluding preferences made in Part 1 and Part 2)

Documents submission

  1. Original mark sheet of Std. X or equivalent exam.

  2. Original school leaving certificate.

  3. Original hall ticket (required for CBSE students only).

  4. Original caste certificate (where applicable).

  5. Relevant certificates related to Arts, Culture and Sports (where applicable).

  6. Transfer certificate for wards of government employees (where applicable).

  7. Relevant certificates/documents if applicable for wards of servicement and freedom fighters.

  8. Relevant certificates for those who are Physically Handicapped students.

Getting admission

Once your name appears in the merit list of a junior college, you need to go to that college, fill up the admission form of the college, attache relevant documents in original along with the photocopies & secure provisional admission. You will need to pay Rs.50/- for this. Within one working day, you should receive a system-generated 'Admission Confirmation Letter'.

In case you do get a betterment offer in a subsequent merit list, you must first cancel the admission from the previous junior college & approach the new college for admission.

Some useful tips for FYJC admissions

  • Fill the form very carefully and very wisely! At the first instance itself you should be clear about your college preference and the specific course. So ensure beforehand that the college you would like to study in does indeed offer that course.

  • Do think of your future career and job prospects. Do not take up an engineering course merely because others are doing so. Know your aptitude and interests and think ahead of what you will be going some years down the line, after completing your 12th and even beyond graduation.

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

  • It is not a bad idea to visit the campuses of the colleges you would like to get admissions into. You could check out the infrastructure & facilities, perhaps even meet some students already studying there. You can even approach ex-students and get first hand feedback for an insigtful college review.
