Pune: Deputy Director of Education (DDE), Pune region, has issued a circular for the students from Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) Board, International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) Board and National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) for filling up of Part 1 of the application form for admission to First Year Junior College (FYJC).
The DDE has started the online Centralised Admission Process (CAP) for the students seeking admissions in Std XI or FYJC (First Year Junior College). Apparently, the results for Maharashtra State Board for Std X are yet to be announced.
From this year onward, the CBSE is giving marks instead of class to the SSC students. Thus, the marks of the five main subjects, English, Mathematics, Science, Social Sciences and Second Language, will be considered for merit. The marks of other subjects will not be taken into consideration.
For qualifying, the students can take best of five, either from Group 1 or Group 2, or the marks from both groups combined could also be considered. Also, the student needs to pass in five subjects, in addition to English to be qualified for merit in FYJC admissions.
The students of NIOS will have to fill up the marks of all the subjects, as per the marks sheet.
For admission in science stream, the students need to pass in the science paper of SSC examination with 35 per cent or more. The students having SYC (Subject Yet to be Cleared) remark are not eligible to fill the forms. Also, the students, who have 35 per cent marks, will not be allowed to choose the option of best of five and will have to fill in the marks of all the subjects in the application forms.
IGSCE/IG/IB (for foreign students)
The students will have to calculate all their marks and then these will be converted to marks out of 500. The students will not be allowed to choose best of five.
“Apart from the recognised boards, the students of any other board of education will not be considered eligible for FYJC CAP. The students, who haven’t received their mark sheets, will be given provisional admissions based on the provisional mark sheets, and their admissions will be finalised later,” said Minakshi Raut, Secretary, Std XI CAP Committee, Pune.
