Important Instructions for JoSAA Registration:
JoSAA would be conducting counselling for all IITs, NITs and other GFTIs. Candidates are required to fill their choices on josaa.nic.in. Candidates who have appeared for JEE Main 2021 are required to fill the choices for NIT+ system and are not eligible for IITs.
Only the candidates who have qualified JEE Advanced 2021 are eligible for IITs, IISc. Candidates who have qualified the JEE Advanced are also eligible for all the other participating institutes.
Based on their eligibility, candidates can register on josaa.nic.in and fill in their choices of the institutes and branches in decreasing order of preference. Choices would be picked accordingly hence candidates must carefully weigh in their choices before filling the same.
After filling the choices, candidates are also required to LOCK their choices. If the choices are not locked before the last time, the last saved choices would be automatically locked. Remember, once locked, choices CANNOT be modified. Hence be very careful.
For accepting a seat, candidates must pay for the seat acceptance fee through the allowed modes of payment for the seat allotted. Once the seat is paid for, candidates must get their documents verified at any of the reporting centres. The lists of reporting centres is also available on josaa.nic.in.
Depending on the satisfaction with the seat allotted, the candidates must fill the option of freeze, slide or float. Depending on the options filled, candidates would be able to participate in the subsequent rounds of counselling.
If in a subsequent round, say Round 4 or 5 the candidate is able to secure a seat in IIT and wishes to forego the seat at NIT+, then he/she is require to once again report to the respective IIT Reporting centre. Simillarly, if a student shifts from an IIT to any NIT+ institute in a subsequent round, he/she must report to the respective institution again.
Candidates also have an option to withdraw the seat which has already been accepted by reporting to a reporting centre upto 6th round of seat allocation. After that, if the candidate fails to join the institution, he or she would not be eligible for the seat nor eligible to apply for JEE Advanced 2021.
Important things to Remember
Candidates who do NOT register within the specified time window WILL NOT be able to seek admission for this academic year. Candidates who do NOT fill in choices within the specified time window WILL NOT be able to seek admission for this academic year.
Two times reporting required in case of seat allotment changes from NIT+ system to IITs and vice versa. No modification of locked choices – once locked, choices CANNOT be modified.
Choice filling is the most important choice for colleges with the rank of students. The choice filling process began through the JoSAA (Joint Seat Allocation Authority) website. Students may lose the most valuable seat with a few minor mistakes in the process. So students have to follow certain methods.
Seat Selection Method
Colleges and courses should be selected based on the rank of students. You can select any number of courses in order of priority. First you have to choose their favorites and choose one to the last. When you want to read in any country, you should also consider the lesser-known ones.
Every opportunity given on the website should be avoided by doubting whether I can come. 50 per cent for local students and 50 per cent for students from other states. This year, the central government has given a 10 per cent reservation for the weaker section in the OC category. These are allotted ranks in Josaa to be considered.
When a student chooses up to 50 choices, the seat allotment will see where the student is ranked. If you get a 10th choice seat, you should immediately verify the certificates in the nearest net and reserve the seat. Freeze if you are satisfied with this choice.
Also, if the chance to get a good branch in the same college, the option to choose the option. Similarly, if you go to any college or any choice, you have to choose a float option. Selected sequences (11th to 50th Choice) are then edited by default.
One must check ten times without making a mistake in the selection of options. It is mandatory to reserve a seat after verification of certificates. Waiting for another round to make sure the favorite branch didn’t come was a big mistake. Once reserved, there is no other option when reserved. Any seat can be reported in Warangal NIT. Fees can be charged right here.
