Mumbai Online 11th Admission Registration Starts

First Year Junior College (FYJC) 11th admission registration started with a slow start, with only around 3,500 students logging on the portal. Students are worrying for the new reservation of seats from the open category for their chances.

Parents and students are of the view that the information booklet received this time are too tough to understand. "The FYJC information booklet is like a big directory and students as well as parents face a difficult time while searching for different things. The test of the website will be judged after more sign ups takes place on the website.

The education department officials however said they had not received a single complaint for the new website and as days pass, more and more students are expected to begin the 11th admission registration soon. Around 2 lakh students from different boards are expected to apply soon to FYJC via the online 11th admission process. Anxious parents as well as students have called the FYJC Guidance centres for help. "We are getting calls from students about the Mumbai 11th online admission process and most of the queries are from outsider students not from the city," said a guidance centre official in South Mumbai.

Students who wish to apply under arts and culture get an added advantage during 11th online admission as the board will award up to 20 marks extra to students who excel in arts or cultural activities this time like the case of sports. These Students get a 2% reservation while applying to junior colleges. Students get a 3% reservation who excel in sports. Non-state board students are feeling the pinch. A father said, "My daughter got 96% in the ICSE examination and she also is good at arts and sports. But, she won't be eligible for the double benefit the state board students are getting. Getting a seat in the top college of choice in the first list is difficult.".
