In Mumbai, this year if a candidate has secured less than 70 per cent in HSC, then it would be very difficult to grab a seat in one of the popular Mumbai Colleges. There was no third merit list by most of the reputed colleges. Although, some colleges declared the third list, they were to fill the minimal left over seats with no major drop in the cut-off percentages from the previous merit list.
The ongoing degree college admissions in Mumbai strongly suggests that average performers in HSC (Higher Secondary Certificate) should drop their dream of getting a seat in any of the top colleges in Mumbai. Hence, students should try their luck in other smaller Colleges to safeguard their academic year.
Most of the well-known colleges in the city are already full. St Xavier’s College has called off admissions after the declaration of first merit list. There was no third list for Dahanukar College as well. Colleges like Jai Hind and Hinduja declared the third merit list only to fill 10 to 15 vacant seats in different courses with marginal drop in the cut-off marks.
