Pune, 27th June 2024: The central admission process (CAP) for Class 11 in Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation areas has successfully placed 38,890 students in the first round. Notably, 29,840 students secured their first-choice colleges. Students whose admissions were announced must confirm their seats by July 1.

The qualifying marks for admission this year remain high at ninety, with noticeable increases in the arts and commerce streams. The science stream saw varied changes in qualifying marks across different colleges.

According to the education department’s admission schedule, the first-round merit list was released following the announcement of the 10th-grade results by the state board. In total, 1,20,265 seats are available across 343 colleges in the class XI centralised online admission process. Of these, 93,356 seats are designated for central admissions (CAP), while 26,909 seats are reserved for quota admissions. This year, 70,282 students registered for central admissions.

In the first round, the distribution of admissions is as follows:
– Commerce stream: 38,890 students
– Arts stream: 3,640 students
– Science stream: 20,604 students
– Vocational course (HSVC) stream: 435 students

Securing admission to reputed colleges remains highly competitive, and the qualifying marks are crucial. This year’s marks for top colleges are as follows:
Ferguson College: 444 marks for Arts, 474 for Science (last year: 429 and 475 respectively)
Brihanmaharashtra College of Commerce: 476 marks (last year: 479)
Dr. Shamrao Kalmadi College: 452 marks for Arts, 449 for Commerce, 468 for Science (last year: 439, 418, 458 respectively)
Abasaheb Garware College: 330 marks for Arts, 454 for Science (unchanged from last year)
Modern College, Shivajinagar: 343 marks for Arts, 440 for Commerce, 454 for Science (last year: 343, 446, 460 respectively)
Symbiosis College: 472 marks for Arts, 465 for Commerce (last year: 415, 431 respectively)

A college principal explained the variability in eligibility marks, noting that factors such as student scores, their order of preference, and the availability of seats according to those preferences play significant roles in determining qualifying marks.

The admission process mandates that students who secured their first-choice college must accept the offer; failure to do so will render them ineligible for the next two rounds. Colleges have been instructed not to deny admission to students lacking complete documentation. Instead, they should accept these students based on an undertaking to submit the required documents later.
