Who can apply for CAP

You should have passed the Class 10 exam (SSC) or an equivalent exam with English as one of the subjects in order to seek admissions to F.Y.J.C. in colleges in the State of Maharashtra. The marks scored in the Class 10 exam will be the sole basis for getting the college admission and as per the availability of seats in the college to which admission is sought. Reservation of seats will also be applicable as follows-

  • 5% seats as management quota;
  • 10% seats for economically backward general category quota;
  • 16% seats for Marathas;
  • 10% seats are reserved for the in-house students in colleges with schools attached;
  • 50% seats for admissions to students belonging to the linguistic or religious minority, under Minority Quota;
  • 52% for SC/ST/NT;
  • A percentage of seats reserved under the quota of Sports, and Culture (details will be in the information booklet);
  • A percentage of seats reserved for wards of Ex-Serviceman and Handicapped students (details will be in the information booklet).

All quota admissions will be processed by the respective college's management and a detailed seat matrix will be available later. However, no college will conduct an entrance test or an interview with the students to give them admission.

It should be noted that if you have taken up General Mathematics in Class 10, then you cannot seek admissions to bifocal subjects (Technical group) [refer to what is bifocal stream in the later section of this article]; nor can you opt for Mathematics in any of the streams. Also, if you are wanting to get admission to the Science stream, then you must have passed the Class 10 exam (SSC) or an equivalent exam with science subject and scored the minimum marks of 35%.

Options in the online application process

  1. Streams: (i) Arts; (ii) Science; (iii) Commerce and (iv) HSVC (MCVC). Note: Applying in the Bi-focal stream means applying in a particular stream (either Commerce or Science) with technical subjects. Applying in the general stream means applying in Science/Commerce/Arts for non-technical subjects.
  2. Types under each Stream (on the basis of grants): (i) Aided; (ii) Unaided; (iii) Permanent Unaided; (iv) Self-financed.
  3. Types of Junior Colleges: (i) Co-ed; (ii) Boys; (iii) Girls.
  4. Medium of Instruction: (i) Marathi; (ii) English; (iii) Urdu and (iv) Other language as per division.

How to apply

You are first required to obtain the admission information booklet in the last week of May 2019 from your school where you studied. It is important to obtain this booklet, as it contains the ID and the Password which will be required to apply for F.Y.J.C. admission online. The school Principal, teachers and staff can explain and assist you in filling up the online admission form.

Then the online application for admission should be done at the official FYJC Admissions' website from the first week of June 2019. This will begin on 25th May 2019.

Note: The first is the zero round, wherein the colleges will fill up the seats as per the various quotas. Then there will be three regular rounds and those who were unable to get a seat in these rounds will get an opportunity to do so in a special round after those three rounds.

Here is the step by step guide to submitting the online application for F.Y.J.C. admissions -
  1. Log in at the website with the ID and password which you will find in the admission booklet which you had purchased from the school.
  2. The school can fill up Part 1 of the application form and this can be done prior to getting your Class 10 results as it is only the basic information about yourself, such as your name, address, etc.
  3. Take a print out of the application form and keep it for future reference.
  4. On getting the results of the Class 10 exam, you are required to again login to the admissions' website in order to fill up Part 2 of the online application form. This part is where you fill up the marks and your college preferences. You are allowed to choose a minimum of one college and a maximum of ten colleges.
  5. The online process will only allot a seat in the stream you opted for in a junior college, but not the subjects. The optional subjects will be allocated by the Principal of the college based on merit and availability.
  6. Admission for various quotas will take place first and then for all other students. In case of vacant seats under the quotas, these will be made available to the general category students after three rounds of admission.
  7. If you so wish, you need not take admission to the college allotted to you. You can wait for the next round(s). However, if you do not take admission at the college allotted to you in the first round, then you will get a chance for another seat only after three rounds. After each round, you can edit your preference of college and you will exit the CAP system only after you have secured admission.
  8. One change this year in CAP is that if you secure a seat in a Diploma course, then also you can opt out of the admission process. After three admission rounds, there will be a special round and after that, the remaining seats will be allotted on first-come, first served basis.

How to get admission

As mentioned earlier in this article, you will get admission to a college in Mumbai based on your marks in the Class 10 exam and availability of seats. However, if your name does not appear in the college that was your first choice, then, based on seat availability, the second preference will be considered, then the third preference, etc. It is important to note that when your name has appeared in the merit list of a particular junior college, that college cannot refuse admission to you as long as you have approached the college in the prescribed time limit. In case you are refused admission, you should immediately visit the Guidance Center of your area. However, the college can keep your admission on hold if original documents have not been submitted and need to be verified or there is an issue of the payment of the requisite fees. The admission may then be refused if these processes are not followed through.

Once you are allotted a college through the online centralized admission process, you must submit the requisite documents at the college. These inclue:
  1. The original mark sheet of the S.S.C. exam or its equivalent.
  2. The original school leaving certificate.
  3. For those applying under quota, the relevant caste certificate/reservation certificate as applicable.

Thank you for the information! But I still have some questions. I am a student of an International Board. I just finished my 10th class in Tokyo. And I have come to Mumbai to get admission in FYJC. In order to fill the application form, I need to get the booklet from a school. But from which school? I have not done my 10th from any of the schools in Mumbai. So, where do I get the booklet from?

Also, are there any help centres or guidance centres for this admission process? If so, please tell me the address and its contact number. Thank you.

Gopal Yadav,

The booklet will be given by a school to its own students. Since you have not studied in a Mumbai school, they may not issue the booklet to you. Yes, guidance centres at prominent schools are always set up each year for the admission process. A list of guidance centres will be available at the official website, the link to which I have given in the article, once the online admission process begins. These centres are as per Zones and there are more than half a dozen for the city of Mumbai.

What I suggest is that, instead of waiting for the list to be uploaded, you could send a query via email to I have got this email from the official website of the School Education and Sports Department, Government of Maharashtra. Also, at this page - - you can see a link for the contact details of the various Education Departments of the State of Maharashtra. You could try contacting one of the Education Inspectors, North, South or West, and make inquiries as to whether the booklet would be available at any of the Guidance Centers and whether you can then apply for admission.

Further, as I mentioned in the article, there will be a special Help Desk this year at the office of the Deputy Director of Education. The address is - Jawahar Bal Bhawan, Netaji Subhash Marg, Charni Road, Mumbai - 400004. You can make inquiries there as well.

Note: Have you got your school leaving certificate and mark sheets of Class 10 from the Tokyo school? This will be required.

Hope this information is helpful to you and you are able to get admission to F.Y.J.C. in a college in Mumbai. All the best!

My son has done his 10th in Pune. Will the same logic apply in our case if we wish to take admission in Mumbai college? Is any update on the list of guidance centres available?

Guest Author: Hitakhi Parekh06 Jun 2019

In the booklet, it is mentioned that non-Marathi speaking student can be considered as a minority under the linguistic category. I am a Gujarati and it is a linguistic minority in Maharashtra. So can I select Yes in minority category? One guidance centre is saying Yes and another is saying No. So I am confused.

Please advise what should I select in minority category - Yes or No?

My son studied from Xavier school in Virar West, Dist. Palghar. He did not get the booklet from the school and even the school didn't inform anything about the booklet or online admission process. So I still haven't filled the first form for online admission. Please guide me what to do.

A good article, well covered on the admission process. Appreciate your detailed coverage on the topic and prompt response to the queries raised. This will surely help many students who have passed their 10th standard and their parents.

Can a student who has taken admission (in Minority/in-house quota) in one college as a precaution, select another college as first preference and does s/he stand a chance to get allotment in that preferred college through CAP on merit?

Can you please write an article on how to do FYJC privately? I can't find an article or blog about it online. Do I need to go through a college or can I do it directly through a University? If both options are available, which one is better?
