FYJC admissions 2016: 6,000 applications will be re-checked after errors

The applications will be re-checked for more than 6,000 first-year students who applied to admissions in junior colleges. As the fyjc guidance centres made errors while filling the application forms of five students from outside Mumbai, this has caused the 6000 students application forms getting rechecked.
Along with the case of the five students, the marks that were entered were 100%, instead of the 60%-70% score, a same error was spotted in a form filled from a cyber café. Education officials, however, said the fyjc admission process will not lag behind.

These students came to know about these errors when they saw their names topping the FYJC general merit list announced on June 20. This general merit list ranks applicants according to their Class 10 scores. The general merit list was released on Monday evening and the students corrected the mistakes on Wednesday.

Nikita Wakade from Bhiwandi who topped the fyjc general merit list secured only 65.20% in the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) exam. Nikita Wakade approached a help centre in Bhiwandi to fill her form and they submitted the form online after entered the details.

Mumbai Officials are of the view that these errors were only in forms of students living outside Mumbai, as they need to enter their SSC marks manually, while those of Mumbai SSC students automatically pop-up on the page once the seat number is put in.

Avinash Ahire, assistant, deputy director of education said, “Thankfully, the mistakes were reported before students were allotted seats. So the fyjc admissions will not lag behind.” Therefore, these mistakes would go off before the fyjc first merit list 2016 mumbai and fyjc first merit list 2016 pune are announced on 27th June 2016 at fyjc.org.in/mumbai and pune.fyjc.org.in/ respectively.

BB Chavan, deputy director of education said, “Colleges will outright reject admission if there are variations between the mark sheets and online applications. We will question the guidance centre officials and an action will be taken against them.
