How to do Maharashtra 2018 F.Y.J.C. online admissions Mumbai, Pune and other regions

Searching for the online application form and procedure for 2018-2019 FYJC Mumbai admissions? This article explains the online procedure for the Mumbai junior college admissions for the academic session starting in 2018 after Std.X exam results and provides the schedule for the various steps of the procedure.

In Maharashtra, there is a Centralized Admission Process (CAP) for the admission to the first year junior college (FYJC), which is Class XI. Alll recognized higher secondary schools/junior colleges which are affiliated to the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education must participate in the online CAP.

This year, there are additional seats available but, as per media reports, it seems these are a result of permission being given to some schools to offer higher education and to a few institutes to add divisions. The number of seats is still fixed at most reputed colleges in Mumbai, Pune and other major cities in the State. Totally there will be about 3 lakh seats. The applications submitted will be considered for the online admission procedure on the basis of the merit category and the order of preferences given.

The admission processing fee is Rs. 250/- for Mumbai and Rs.150/- for other divisions. This fee includes the charges for the information booklet and log-in ID.

Who can apply for CAP

All those who pass Std X exam (SSC) or an equivalent exam with English as one of the subjects can seek admissions to FYJC (Std. XI) to Maharashtra colleges. The marks scored in this exam and reservation (if applicable) is the sole criteria for admissions to FYJC classes. No entrance test or interviews will be conducted for the admission.

If you have opted for General Mathematics in Class 10, then you cannot seek admissions to bifocal subjects (Technical group). You also cannot opt for Mathematics in any of the streams.

For those seeking admission to the science stream, it is necessary to have passed the Class 10 exam (SSC) or an equivalent exam with science subject and minimum 35% marks.
