A total of 79,513 applicants were allocated seats in the Special Round of Centralized Admissions Process (CAP) held online for First Year Junior College (FYJC) in Mumbai. With a significant number of applications awaiting college allocation, there is a request to hold an additional special round to ensure merit is not compromised.
The merit list for the special round was declared by the Office of the Deputy Director of Education (DyDE) Mumbai, which runs the CAP rounds, on Monday. A total of 1,00,134 candidates applied for admission to this round. Of these, 79,513 seats were awarded while 20,621 candidates remained unseated.
“These are just the remaining candidates from the special round. There will be more who were out of the system for this round because they did not confirm admission to the assigned college if that was their first preference. There will be others whose applications have been rejected due to errors. Overall, the number of applicants still awaiting admission is significant, suggesting the need for another special round,” said a DyDE office official.
Director of Education (Secondary) Mahesh Palkar, who has the power to decide whether there can be another special round, was not available for comment.
