After declaring the class 10 or SSC results, now the Maharashtra Board will start the first-year junior college (FYJC) admission 2021 soon. This year, the state government will offer admission to class 11 on the basis of a common entrance test (CET). The exam is speculated to be held in August, however, the exact date and timetable are yet to be announced.
The application forms are expected to be released by July 19 at the official website, 11thadmission.org.in. This year, the Maharashtra Board or MSBSHSE students will not have to pay any fee for the college admission forms. Considering they have paid board exam fee and since boards were not held, they will not be charged the FYJC application fee.
Usually, the FYJC admissions are granted on the basis of SSC result, however, the state government has taken the decision to conduct CET for FYJC admission 2021 as the SSC exams had been cancelled this year. The registration for FYJC CET 2021 is expected to begin in the third week of July.
