Once JEE Main rank 2016 is published today, the process of counselling and seat allocation will begin. Here’s the complete schedule for that.

  • 23 June– JEE Main 2016 AIR publication.
  • 24 June– registration and filling-in of choices for academic programs will begin.
  • 27 June (10 am to 4 pm)– mock seat allocation will be displayed based on choices filled by students as of 26 June, 5 pm.

  • 29 June– reconcile the date, allocate seats, verify and validate.
  • 30 June– 1st round of seat allocation result will be published at 10 am. Candidates will have to accept the seats between next 4-5 days.
  • A total of 4 rounds will held for allocation of seats, each scheduled to begin after the completion of admission in previous round. The current schedule of counselling after 1st round is indicative and will be finalised soon by the apex board.

Last year, the publication of rank list was delayed by about one week pertaining uploading of board marks by students and late declaration of 12th results by state boards. In 2015, the rank list was out on 30 June. However, in 2016, the schedule seems intact. Candidates will be required to generate print out of their rank cards, which would not be dispatched by CBSE. The downloaded rank card will be considered valid for participating in counselling and seat allocation process managed by JoSAA.

The admission to IITs will be done on the basis of results of Advanced exam where rest of institutions will be facilitated admissions through JEE main ranks.

Most of the aspirants will obviously be worried if they’d get admission in their sought after course and college. Well, here’s a pro tip for that. Candidates can now check the opening and closing ranks of previous years which were the basis of admission to colleges. Candidates can access that here for JEE Advanced and refine their search by selecting category, course and institution. Same for JoSAA can be done here.

JoSAA has set up 16 reporting centres for IITs to complete admission formalities and 38 other reporting centres for admission to NITs, IIITs and GFTIs. The list can be checked out at JoSAA portal.

All the aspirants who wrote JEE Main are eligible to register for seat allocation in NIT and others except IITs and ISM while the candidates who have qualified for JEE Advanced, are eligible to register in all participating institutions as stated by official notification.

The rank list is crucial, not only for students who didn’t qualify the Advanced exam but also for those who did qualified for JEE Advanced and still didn’t get good enough ranks to land a college and course of their choice. Candidates shortlisted for JEE advanced hold the benefits mostly though and preference is given to them. For instance, if one JEE advanced qualified candidate sets the preference of same institution and program as one JEE Main candidate, he/she is likely to get the seat.

After the rank list is published today, candidates can then fill-in their choices of institutions and branches in decreasing order of preference, as many as possible. Candidates will be required to lock their choices otherwise the system will automatically lock the choice last saved by students. In the process of seat allocation, once seats are allocated to students, they’d need to pay the prescribed fee for seat acceptance and report at any centre to verify their documents.

Candidates also have the provision to participate in subsequent rounds of seat allocation through ‘freeze’, ‘slide’ or ‘float’ option provided by Authority. Candidates who would fail to register or fill-in choices, will not be able to seek admission in this year’s academic programs.
