“We have instructed all principals of junior colleges to conduct extra classes for those students, who have missed couple of months syllabus taken in initial months of the college,” Raud said.

PUNE: Around 20 per cent students are yet to seek admission in junior colleges for the academic year 2018-19, and to facilitate them, Deputy Directorate of Education (DyDE) has declared a final round of first come first serve (FCFS-4) admission on Monday.

This round will be open till October 20. The classes for Std XI in city junior colleges started in July-August. 

Last year, the admission process for Std XI was completed by September. This will be the last round for those who have not been allotted any college so far.

The State government has directed that a last round of FCFS should be undertaken, as results of the Std X reexamination and students who had failed in one or two subjects, allowed to keep term (ATKT), as well as those who have not got any colleges so far can get a last opportunity to take admissions.

Deputy Director of Education (in-charge) Minakshi Raut has informed that this will be the last opportunity for students and parents to seek admission in colleges. No more rounds will be held after this final round.

“We have instructed all principals of junior colleges to conduct extra classes for those students, who have missed couple of months syllabus taken in initial months of the college,” Raud said. 

“Also the colleges should calculate their 75-80 per cent attendance from the time of joining,” added Raut.

Raut also suggested that students, who receive colleges under this final round, should not cancel their seats in respective colleges.
