After delays in announcing the first merit list last week, the state’s education department announced the second list for admissions to first year junior college (FYJC) at 12pm on Thursday, five hours ahead of schedule.

Cut-offs for commerce and science fell in most colleges, but surprisingly, arts rose by a few points. At Vaze Kelkar College, Mulund, the cut-off for arts increased by 8 marks to 85.6%, while commerce fell by just one mark to 89.4%. Science was down by 6 marks to 91.4%.

“We were expecting high cut-offs for commerce and arts because only a few seats are vacant,” said Vidyadhar Joshi, vice- principal.

NM College, Vile Parle saw their commerce cut-off dip by one mark to 91.6%. In Jai Hind College, Churchgate, commerce and arts decreased by 0.2% and 0.8%. Commerce cut off is 89.2%, arts is 87.8% but science plunged down to 81.6%. “We have received several high scorers in commerce and arts. Highest score in arts is 93.8%,” said Ashok Wadia, principal.
