FYJC Pune Colleges undergraduate online process more transparent

With the freshly-introduced fyjc online admission process, the junior college campuses from this year may not be buzzing with activity as it does during this time of the year.

New policy introduced by the University Grants Commission (UGC), mentions that entire process for the under graduate degree is online from this year and there is simply no need for a student to run from one college to another to get admissions forms or check the merit lists or any hassles of the payment process. The circular issued by UGC last month has been forwarded to all affiliated colleges.

Fergusson College, vice principal N M Kulkarni said "that for the first time, applications will be accepted online. Students can pay online meaning a student does not need to come to college  for this. We have provided it on our website and also developed a mobile app for admissions. Students just need to download it and complete the admission process within a few clicks. The forms are open from June 3 till June 9.”

SP College, Principal Dilip Sheth also said "they too are going online for the first time. Students can fill forms online and if name is displayed on the merit list, students are expected to come with documents, photographs and fees to confirm admissions physically in college. It is better if merit list is declared online everywhere as it brings in transparency.”

"Since most colleges prefer internal students (those who pass from attached junior colleges), outside students must find out about last year’s cut-offs before filling forms. The forms for waiting list for BCOM, BBA, BBA (IB) and BBA (CA) will be available from June 5 onwards" said, Principal M M Andar of Ness Wadia College of Commerce.

Principal Rajendra Zunjarrao of Modern College of Arts, Science and Commerce said, "the cutoff for traditional courses will not change much as it depends on many factors besides pass percentage that decide merit list and seats. Our number of applications for Bachelor of Computer Science has decreased despite good facilities in these years. We did a survey and found that’s because applications from rural students lowered down since now colleges at taluka level too offer good facilities.”

Students opting for traditional courses must check the availability of diploma or certificate programmes.
