Campus connect: 4,511 students in Pune have not accessed part 1 of form for FYJC admission
The first general merit list for students seeking admission to Arts, Science and Commerce streams in Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad colleges will be declared on July 12. However, 4,511 students have not yet approved the part 1 of the centralised admission process (Cap) from the guidance centres.

Meenakshi Raut, deputy director of education, Pune and incharge of the Cap committee said, “Till July 3, 4,511 students have not yet approved the part 1 form from the guidance centers and they should do it immediately. If these students do not get their form approved, they will not be eligible to fill the part 2 of the form. Those students who have not completed filling the part 2 of the form, with choices of their college, will not be eligible for the first general merit list which will be released on July 12.”
“Students should carefully fill both parts of the form and choose colleges according to their priority. All our guidance centres are open to help students if they face any issue while filling up the form. We hope that the first yeat junior college (FYJC) admission process will go smoothly,” added Raut.

There are 19 junior colleges and schools in the city which offer bifocal subjects and students can choose a skill-based course.
Students inclined towards Arts stream
This year, the FYJC admissions season trend has been inclined towards the Arts stream, with students applying for Arts stream courses such as BA Political Science (Honours), BA History Honours. Students are also applying for this stream as they want to pursue design-related careers in future.
Prajakta Sakhare, a student seeking admission in FYJC said, “I wish to seek admission in the Arts stream as I want to pursue a career in interior designing or graphic designing. Most of my friends are also opting for Arts. Hence, we have listed colleges that offer Arts stream in our admission forms.”
Talking about this trend, Dilip Seth, principal, Sir Parashurambhau (SP) College said, “There are many career opportunities in Arts stream, students can opt for a career in language or a creative field or even history and political science. This trend has been going on for at least three years. The dynamics have changed, it is not like earlier times, when students would prefer going for the Science stream to pursue a career in medical or engineering.”
