THANE: As the First Year Junior College (FYJC) online admissions are scheduled to begin from Thursday, the rush to reserve a seat in the best institute during this month-long enrolment process has begun with schools in the city organising sessions on form filling for parents and students.
From chalking out options and giving preferences of junior colleges, gathering the required documents to visiting school guidance counsellors for advice, anxious parents and students have started their preparations in full swing.
Darshana Thakker, whose son is a topper from St. Xavier’s High school, said, “I have a booklet since two years ago, which has all the rules and regulations of the admission process. But now, no such book exists. Everything is digital. The school is very co-operative in this matter. They have organised a session with parents wherein the authorities are going to divide the students to form a batch. In this way, everyone will get ample time to solve their queries and fill the forms.” Considering several students have managed to score well in exams, teachers believe the admission process will be crucial and one mistake could result in a huge loss.
“Since many have secured a good percentage, it is possible that a high scorer may narrowly miss a seat in a college of his/her choice. We have called parents on Thursday where minute details would also be explained. The parents should sit with their child, analyse last year’s cut off of the college the student is interested in and then only make a proper preference list,” said a teacher from a city-based school. The school is very co-operative in this matter. They have organised a session with parents wherein the authorities are going to divide the students to form a batch. In this way, everyone will get ample time to solve their queries and fill the FYJC forms
