As per the new rules, students are required to choose the college based on three criteria –Region (Mumbai Metropolitan Region), Zone and finally the Ward. However, a student cannot repeat the name of the same college twice.
The students can write their preference of at least 15 colleges under Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR), 15 colleges under the zone and 5 colleges of their choice under the ward section.
With these new criteria in effect, the parents as well as students have become worried about the final outcome of this process for admissions. It is assumed that with this rule many students may end up getting an admission to a college which they are not nterested in.
