Mumbai University First Merit List

The first cut-off list was disclosed on June 19, 2014 by the Mumbai University. The cut-offs of various renowned colleges have been increased by 2-3% as compared to last year’s cut-offs. Most of the acclaimed art colleges have witnessed an increase of 9-4% in that stream. 

There has been an increase in the cut-offs due to inflation in the scores of ICSE and CBSE students. Most of the colleges managed to fill up 60% of the seats soon after the releasing of the first merit list. The deadline for pre-admission online registration has been extended by the University till 12 noon on June 27, 2014. Students were seen disheartened due to the high cut-offs in self-financed courses. Students from the state board could not make up to the cut-offs of the first merit list. The principal of St. Xavier’s college mentioned that they do not expect to come out with the second cut-off list.
