FYJC General Merit List Cut Offs 2011 | General Cut Offs for FYJC 2011 | Arts, Science, Commerce General Merit List |




Cut-offs rise 1-2 %,but top colleges cross 95% mark

Thousands Of High Scorers Fail To Get Into Preferred Colleges

Mumbai: First the good news: FYJC general merit list cutoffs for science and commerce streams announced on Friday have gone up only marginally by a percent or two when compared to last year. On the other hand,cut-offs to top colleges like Ruia, Ruparel and Sathaye colleges for the science stream have crossed the 95% mark, making it difficult for even 90% scorers to get a seat. For instance, the science cut-off at Ruia College in Matunga was a high 95.09%,while the entry level for Ruparel College in the same stream was 95.63%.Cut-offs for commerce, too, touched 90%.
The lists were announced ahead of the scheduled time,which was 5pm.Around 3.30pm,students could see their allotment online.

With the unusually high number of top scorers across all three boards, colleges were expecting very high cut-offs this year. Shobhana Vasudevan,principal of Podar College,Matunga, said, Even though we were expecting the cut-offs to be exceptionally high,it is only marginally higher than last year.
The first general merit list evoked a mixed response from parents and students. While those who scored 95% and above in their board exams were able to get a seat in a college of their choice, the majority is now waiting for the betterment option in the hope that they will be allocated a seat in their preferred colleges.

Many top-rung city colleges saw anxious parents and students awaiting allotment lists on Friday.

Mansi Sheth,who scored 92.2% in the SSC board exam,was ecstatic when she saw that she had been awarded a seat in the college of her choice. I have been allotted a Commerce seat at H R College,Churchgate,which was my first preference, she said.But for Kirtana Shettywho scored only 2% less than Sheth in the ICSE board examFridays list was a bitter disappointment.I got a seat in a commerce college which was seventh in my preference list.I hope the betterment option brings me some good luck, said Shetty.
Several colleges complained that more than half seats are vacant even after the first allotment’s A Shiware, principal of KPB Hinduja College at Charni Road,said: We have around 684 seats in the aided commerce section and only 279 students have been allotted seats in our college. Normally most of the seats are taken in the first round itself.

An official from the deputy directors office said, All seats will be filled by the second round. There is a possibility that not many students have opted for some colleges, which would explain why some colleges have seats that have not been allotted yet.

2011 surprise: Arts cut-offs raise the bar

Mumbai: Even as most colleges saw a marginal rise in cut-offs in the science and commerce streams, what surprised college heads was the sudden demand for seats in the arts stream. This development resulted in a drastic rise in the cut-offs in several colleges, ranging from 6% to as high as 31%.
At SIES College, authorities were baffled to see the cut-offs for the arts stream rise by almost 17% from 56% last year to 73% this year. Harsha Mehta,principal,SIES College,said,In the minority quota as well,we have admitted students in arts,who have secured as high as 94%.The trend has changed and students are realizing that studying subjects in arts can translate into better job opportunities.Apart from lucrative options in degree colleges for arts students with Bachelor of Mass Media (BMM) and Bachelor in Management Studies (BMS),arts students are given preferences in job interviews after they complete their MBA in HR. There is more awareness now about career options.
At Sathaye College in Vile Parle, the first general merit list for their arts stream stopped at 68.8% this year. Last year, the first cut-off was a mere 37%.At K C College, the arts cut-off has risen to 81.2% this year from 73.27% last year. I believe, students are grabbing seats under the arts stream as a backup option. Many just want to study at a reputed college, no matter what stream they study in. Once these students get a seat in another college as well as a stream of their choice, they might withdraw their admissions from the arts stream, said Manju Nichani, principal, K C College.
Students, though, appear to be sure about their options. Most subjects under the arts stream are challenging as well as interesting and easygoing at the same time.Ill get to study interesting topics as well as enjoy my college life, said Malavika Shetty, who has been allotted a seat at St Xaviers College and intends to pursue a degree in law after Class XII.

Several college heads are happy that students are finally seeing the importance of this often-ignored stream. Almost every year, seats under the arts stream would go vacant even in the best of colleges. Hopefully, this trend will change for good now, said a principal.
