Based on the first merit list for class XI admissions for first year junior college (FYJC), declared on July 10, Pune now has the largest number of completed admissions in Maharashtram with Mumbai next.

As per round one merit list, as many as 40,315 students were allotted seats in different colleges as per their preferences. A total of 3,141 students eventually got admissions.

However, in addition to having the highest number of admitted students, Pune also tops in the number of cancelled applications, that is 13.

Further, five students have also been rejected.

Students who were allotted colleges as per their first preferences are mandated to take them, and if cancelled, will be out of the centralised admission procedure (CAP). However, students who might have been allotted colleges between their second and 10th preferences, still have the scope to go ahead and apply in the following rounds.

In comparison to Pune, the second largest number of admitted students lie in Mumbai, with 3,007 admissions out of 1,56,507 allotted students. There have been only nine cancellations and one rejection.

In Nagpur, out of 26,344 allotted seats, only 465 have been filled, with one cancellation and one rejection. The remaining three, Amravati, Aurangabad and Nashik, however, have zero cancellation or rejection, and still only 1,17,120, and 125 students have gotten admitted for now.

While Nashik had 14,965 students allotted according to their college preferences, Aurangabad had 10,560 students. In Amravati, for now, the lowest number of students, 6,479 had been allotted colleges as per the first merit list.
