With over 60,000 applications registered till now in the first part of the centralised admission process (CAP) process for admissions to the first-year junior college (FYJC), the CAP committee on Saturday announced a set of instructions for students affiliated with non-state boards.
The FYJC procedure requires students to fill a two-part online admission form, of which, the registration for the first part commenced recently in May. The second part of the form will be out after the secondary school certificate (SSC) results for Maharashtra are announced, said officials.
According to the notice issued by the committee, which recorded a total of 61,498 registrations for Part 1 form in Pune, on Saturday, students from the central board of secondary education (CBSE) are no longer required to convert their grades, as the mark sheets now clearly mention the marks. They will have to take the five subject marks, from among the subjects they had considered while filling the forms.
The decision was taken keeping in mind a number of queries, received by the committee, from students belonging to other boards other than the state board.
“We had been receiving many queries from CBSE, Indian certificate of secondary education (ICSE) and national institute of open schooling (NIOS) board students and other boards. We found a number of common issues and decided to put forth a formal notice to address them,” said Meenakshi Raut, assistant director of education, Pune.
On the other hand, students from the ICSE board will have to clear five subjects in addition to English, and can choose the best of five subjects, either from group A, B or combine those from both the groups.
According to the notice, students from NIOS board, will have to fill up the marks of all the subjects, as per the marks sheet. Students from the international general certificate of secondary education (IGCSE) and international baccalaureate (IB) board will have to calculate the subject-wise marks and enter the total marks, which will, then, be equalised with the total marks out of 500. Here, students will, however, not have the option of choosing best of five subjects.
“Those who are yet to pass a subject are not eligible to fill the form like regular students. Also, those students who have got 35 marks will not be allowed to choose best of five option,” added Raut.
As per the notice, students who have made the application based on their provisional mark sheets will have to fill the forms and will be eligible for provisional admissions, which are subject to submission of the original results.
