The third and final first-come, first served (FCFS) round was wrapped up by the state education department on Saturday. In this final FCFS, around 2,800 students secured seats, Saturday was the last day to confirm admissions under FCFS 3.
According to Hindustan Times, 3,409 students were allotted seats in the third round. An official from the state education department told the leading daily, “Many students who had not secured admissions in the earlier rounds had requested for an additional round. They were allowed to apply afresh and have been allotted seats. With this, this year’s admissions for FYJC have come to an end.”
The students who are eligible for FCFS rounds are students who cancelled admissions owing to various reasons and those who did not confirm admission even after being allotted the college of their first preference. Students scoring 35% and above could claim the seat of their choice depending on the availability across city colleges in the online portal. Colleges are now ensuring that those who have joined late catch up with the syllabus that has already been taught.
