The cut-offs across Mumbai colleges plunged in the first merit list for first year junior college (FYJC) admissions announced on Tuesday

A total of 32, 477 of the 2.3 lakh students who applied in the general category got admissions through quota and 53, 803 got their first preference. This means only 63% students are left to compete in the next rounds.

Despite this, officials warned students that upcoming rounds will be unpredictable — the cut-offs might spike or fall further — owing to new admission rules. These rules allow students to change their college preferences and stream after each round, but there is no betterment of seat, unlike previous years.

Officials have advised students to be careful if they plan to give up seats allotted in the first list in the hope of securing better options in upcoming rounds.

“This year, cut-offs in the merit list will not follow any sequence. Till last year, the cut-offs would fall after each list, but this time they might even rise as students switch streams and change preferences,” said BB Chavan, deputy director of education, Mumbai region.
