In the last two academic years, the admission process has been delayed up to September and December as a special round process was going on and students were reluctant to take the admissions.
Mahendo Padhye, senior professor and education expert, said, “This is the impact of increasing demand for management courses or short-term courses which can give job opportunities to students in one or couple of years. Now, more students are rejecting to take admission in traditional FYJC admission process and rather finding other career preferences.”
