Aspirants seeking admissions into Mumbai Junior Colleges have a reason to cheer with the colleges registering a dip in the cut-off marks. The first cut-off list for the online admissions witnessed most colleges recording a dip of 1.5%-2% in the cut-off marks, while other generous colleges reduced the cut-offs by nearly 4%.
K C College in Churchgate, which had a cut-off of 92.54% for Commerce in 2011, has reduced the cut-off to 88.55% this year. At Ramnarain Ruia College in Matunga the cut-off for science stream was reduced from 95.09% to 93.27%. Officials from the SIES College of Commerce reported a dip in cut-off to 89.63% from 90.77% as there was a slight increase in the number of seats leading to the marginal dip in the cut-off. Since there were very few seats left in the open category, the college has also converted the management quota seats to merit seats to facilitate more seats under the open category. Only 135 of the 480 seats were available for online admissions in the college.
On the other hand, some Junior Colleges recorded a slight increase or no changes in the cut-offs marks in comparison to 2011. St. Xavier's College and K P B Hinduja College recorded an increase of 1-2% respectively for the arts stream.
At H R College, the officials reported large number of students securing admissions under the Cultural and Sports quota despite the cut-off remaining at 91.27%. In R A Podar College, the highest scorer under the physically challenged category was 89%.
This year the cut-offs were expected to dwindle down by a few percent as the number of students securing 90% and above marks in the state board was low in comparison to the previous years. College officials are also expecting withdrawal of the online-admissions with more number of high scorers seeking admissions for bifocal subjects. Admissions for bifocal subjects will be held after the closure of online admission process which is expected to be completed soon in many colleges.
