With the close of the round two of the first year junior college (FYJC) admissions of Class 11, over 14,000 students, are still without admissions.
On July 24, the round two admissions closed leaving 14,005 students without confirmation of admission.
Of these, 1,551 did not confirm their first preference allocation, despite reminders.
These students now risk being out of the admission process, as confirming seats in colleges of first preference is mandatory as per committee regulations.
As per the centralised admissions procedure (CAP), 5,333 students out of a total of 6,884 students have been admitted based on their first preference of college, and over all, from 1st to the 10th preference, 10,531 students out of a total of 24,536 students have been admitted.
According to a report released by the office of the deputy director of education, Pune, on July 25, as many as 13,847 students are yet to report to their respective colleges as per the second list. Out of the remaining 158 students, 27 had been rejected while the admissions of the other 131 has been cancelled in the process.These students will now have to move on to the round 3 to confirm their admissions.
However, for the students who have not confirmed their seats as per the first preference,i.e.,1,517 not reported students, and the 15 rejected and 19 cancelled students, carrying forward the admission process will not take place anymore.
These students will be out of the process and would have to try admissions in private colleges, or re-appeal to the board. This rule, however, applies to students receiving their first preferences only.
In Mumbai, the number of students yet to report at colleges of their first preference to confirm their seats, has reached a total of 3,705.

Out of the total number of allocations in Round 1, 19,991 students had got their first preference. For them again, it was mandatory to register with the respective colleges and confirm their seats.
