City students will be able to sign up for admissions to the first year junior college (FYJC) courses from May 15. The deputy directorate of education has decided to open the website early this year so that students get sufficient time to fill their applications online.
This year, all FYJC aspirants, including those applying for quota seats or through the general category, will have to first register themselves on the online admissions website, http://fyjc.org.in/mumbai. The students will receive a unique identification number (UID) after registering on the website. This number will be used to track the progress of each student’s application.
Last year, the website was opened only after May 27, as some modifications were being made to it. However, this year, the website will be ready in a few days, said Sanjay Ahire, assistant deputy director of education, Mumbai region.
“We will be able to open the website for students on May 15. We request students to start registering themselves on the website and filling part one of their application forms,” said Ahire.
“Even those students seeking admissions through minority, management and in-house quota will have to register on the website,” he said.
After registering online, students applying in the general category can proceed to fill the first part of their application form online. In part one, students will have to fill in their personal details and other related information.
Part two of the form, also known as the option form, will be accessible, once the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) results are declared in June. Students have to list out their preferred colleges in the required order in the option form.
