One lakh FYJC aspirants seatless

With the FYJC CAP process coming to an end yesterday, around 1lakh students are still waiting for seats.

Although the fourth and final merit list for the FYJC Centralized Admission Process (CAP) released yesterday allotted seats to 49,062 students, there are still around 1 lakh students waiting for seats. As anxious parents and students lined up outside the School Education Department yesterday, unsure about the next steps to be taken, officials confirm that two special lists will be released next week for these students.

The 32,001 students who applied for the fourth list were not allocated any seats. A frustrated parent said, “My son has got 78% but is not being granted any seat in colleges of his choice. We don't know what's going to happen next but hope the deserving students receive seats.”

The fourth list, which was released on the school education department's official website yesterday morning, allotted seats to 49,062 students out of the total 81,063 who had applied. 3,671 of these students received allocation in the Arts stream, 32,109 in Commerce, 12,773 in Science and 509 in vocational streams.

Rajendra Ahire, the Deputy Director of School Education said, “There are enough number of seats for all the students. The problem is that the students are only applying to top colleges, where there is a lack of vacant seats, or the cut-offs are high. Students should check vacancies and cut-offs before applying.”

Besides the 32,001 students who did not get allotted seats in the fourth list, there are around 68,000 students who did not apply for the fourth list and are still without seats. Many of these students are those who received seats in colleges of their top preference, but failed to secure them. There are also students who failed to take admission in the colleges they had been allotted, but did not apply for the next list.

The Nagpur Bench of the high court is reportedly going to order the minority colleges to surrender their vacant minority seats to the open category now that the CAP is over. This will increase the number of seats by around 40,000. According to officials, there are going to be two special lists after the 10th, which will be according to merit, for which applications will take place online. In these lists, the vacant minority seats will also reportedly be taken into consideration, thus increasing the number of available seats to around 1 lakh. If after these lists there are still students without seats, there will be a special 'first come first serve' round.

The students who have been allotted seats in the fourth list are expected to secure their seats in the respective colleges by tomorrow, August 9.
