JoSAA Counselling Procedure

The candidates must keep up with the JoSAA Counselling schedule and adhere to it.

  1. The candidates are required to register themselves at the JoSAA website.

  2. They need to fill in their choices of institutes and courses in preferential order.

  3. The cut-offs for the participating institutes shall be released as per the counselling schedule.

  4. There shall be 6 rounds, and after each of the rounds, the selected candidates would be required to report online by paying the seat acceptance fee and uploading the required documents.

  5. Suppose the candidate is allotted a seat in a particular round. In that case, they can choose from the three available options – ‘Freeze’ (accept the seat and don’t take part in the counselling rounds), ‘Float’ (accept the seat but wait for a better preference), or ‘Slide’ (accept the seat but seek for admission into another preferred course from the same institute).

  6. Candidates can withdraw from seat allocation before the last round.

  7. In case there are leftover seats at the institute, JoSAA may conduct a spot round.

So, JoSAA Counselling is a lengthy and critical process even after the scores, and qualifying cut-offs are released. Aspirants must be aware of the steps properly to avoid any confusion. After the conclusion of the JEE Main Counselling, students can finally fulfil their wishes to study at the top Engineering Colleges.
