More than 62,000 students have registered for the pre-admission registrations process for undergraduate courses affiliated with the University of Mumbai. This process kicked off on June 9 and till now nearly 80,000 applications by the registered candidates have been submitted ( as one student can apply for more than one course). The figures were revealed by the University on Monday morning. While registration figures include students from different school education boards, including the Maharashtra state board, applications have been submitted only by state board (HSC) students as some other education board students await their results.
Till 2021, HSC would be the last of the board results to be announced, making way for the admissions process to UG courses to commence immediately. Starting from this year, state universities will have to wait for class 12 results of other school education boards including the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Indian School Certificate (ISC), before announcing the entire schedule.
