Mumbai: Owing to the Ganeshotsav vacation, the students who are still awaiting admissions to first year junior colleges (FYJC) will have to wait a little longer as the next round will start after September 23. According to sources close to the state education department, nearly 5,000 to 7,000 students are still without a seat even after seven rounds of admission.

Students on the other side are tired of “waiting” while the department officials feels it is student’s fault if they still haven’t got admission in colleges.

“I scored 69.37 and I don’t want to settle for some junior colleges. I tried my luck in the special round and both the first come, first serve (FCFS) rounds but couldn’t get through in any good colleges. I came to the department to ask if I can wait more, they told me about the new round so I’m left with no option than waiting,” an Arts stream aspirant said. Another student, who got admission but cancelled it ‘for a better college’ says, “The earlier college was not good as per my friends and it is far from where I stay. So I decided to cancel it and try my luck in the upcoming round.”

Officials said students are still waiting to get admission in popular colleges. “If they continue waiting for these colleges, admissions will never end because those are already full,” said Rajendra Ahire, deputy director of education.

Meanwhile, in the second round of FCFS, that ended this week, the ATKT cleared students of class 10 too were added. Even though there are 70,000 plus vacant seats in MMR, the seats are full in popular colleges.
