FYJC First Merit List 2012 | FYJC First Merit List Admission 2012

First merit list for online jr college admissions today

Mumbai: With the first general merit list for online junior college admissions to be announced today, anxiety levels of students are reaching new heights.Just as students are clueless about what to expect from the list, college heads are confused. However, they all agreed that cut-offs may not be higher than last year.
Cut-offs will change from college to college, depending on choices made by students. There may be a slight drop or no difference in cutoffs, but definitely cut-offs will not be higher than last year, said Vijay Joshi,principal,K J Somaiya College,Vidyavihar.

Unlike last year, where the number of 90% and above scorers in all boards SSC,ICSE and CBSEhad shot up,this year SSC results saw a 50% dip in the number of students scoring 90% and above. Principals told TOI that even though more ICSE and CBSE students have got through the 90% mark,they are a very small number in junior college aspirants. Of the 1.92 lakh applications that have come up online, less than 10,000 have come from other boards.State board students have nothing to worry about, added Joshi.
Principals agreed that students should expect the first cutoff to be on the higher side. There may be an increase in cut-offs for the commerce stream but definitely other streams will see a dip, said Marie Fernandes, principal, St Andrews College, Bandra (W).She added that even though the cutoff in the first list may be high, it will definitely come down in the second and third lists. The first merit list always shows a drastic picture but cutoffs come down in the next two lists, she added.

Most principals refused to predict cut-offs but were sure they will come down.Kavita Rege, principal, Sathaye College,Vile Parle (E),said, Even though we cant be sure,I have a feeling cutoffs may come down slightly. 

The first online merit list will be announced today at 5 pm. Students whose names have appeared in the first list will receive a message. In any case, students can check if their name has been announced in the first list by logging on to, said a senior education official.

Students whose names have appeared on the list can confirm their admission by submitting the required documents and paying Rs 50 to the college over the next two days.
