Changes in Mumbai Junior College online admissions

  1. You will no longer have the option of selecting multiple options from the list of colleges. You can select up to 10 colleges only. If you do not list your colleges in the order of preference, it will become compulsory to take admission in the college which is allotted by the computerized system.

  2. You can select only one stream.

  3. If you are allotted a college which was your first preference, then you must take admission to that college only. Once you get this allotted college, you need to pay the admission fee to that college and secure your admission as then you will be out of the admission process completely. Keep in mind that if you don't get your preferred college and you take part in the next rounds, there is no guarantee that you will get a better college than the one allotted to your in the first round.

  4. If you are allotted a college which is not your first preference but you wish to join that college, you can pay the requisite admission fee. In that case, you cannot further participate in the admission process. Those who have not paid the fee to the allotted college can take part in the next rounds of admission.

  5. After every round, vacant seats will be updated on the admissions portal.

  6. Admissions to HSC Vocational (MCVC), and seats on the basis of quota (religious or linguistic minority and in-house/management quota) will also be done through the online process only. You need to select the admission type as quota and select the reservation you are eligible for. The category-wise reservation is: 5% Management Quota; 20% In-house students; 50% Minority quota. Once you confirm your admission under a quota and proceed to pay up the full amount of the admission fee, then your name will be blocked to prevent you from applying in the general category.

  7. Schools must help the students to fill up the online application form in the school itself. You must not fill in the form through a coaching center or cyber cafe. The school can fill up the first part of the application form and students can then fill up the options of their choice in Part-2 of the form once the Class 10 results have been declared.

  8. The schools have been directed not to issue the School Leaving Certificate (SLC) unless and until the student applies for FYJC admissions to a college through the online admission process.

  9. There will be 4 rounds of admission over a period of one month, between 15th June 2017 and 15th July 2017, once the Class 10 results are declared. Additional rounds will also likely be conducted later, every two weeks for a couple of months, up to 1st September 2017, when students can seek admissions on a first come first serve basis.
