Uttar Pradesh Polytechnic entrance examination was conducted this year on May 1 in which around 4.69 lakh candidates appeared. As the results were announced on June 10, the counselling process for admissions in 1,34,727 seats of government, aided and private polytechnic colleges has successfully commenced. Special efforts have also been made this year so that seats in government and government-aided polytechnic colleges do not remain vacant. JEECUP has fixed 8 August as the date for spot counselling, specially for admissions in government and aided polytechnic colleges. Students who have appeared in the polytechnic entrance exam can participate in the spot round and get their documents verified to complete the admission process.
To participate in JEECUP counselling, candidates are required to register themselves through official website jeecup.nic.in. Online registration for counselling can be done by using application form number and password that candidates had set up when they filled the application form. After furnishing basic details, candidates will have to deposit the counselling fee of Rs. 250, which can be done through Net Banking, Debit/Credit card or bank challan from any branch of State Bank of India. Online registration for first round JEECUP counselling can be done till July 1.
Following the successful registration and counselling fee payment, candidates will have to fill their choices of preference of course and institute. After logging into the official website, the screen will display the options of course and institute depending on the candidates’ marks, candidates can then select their choices (Note – there is no limit on the number of choices). After filling their choices, candidates will have to lock their choices and get their documents verified. Document verification will be done at the help centers, for which candidates will have to report to any of the 76 help centers by July 2. The complete list of help centers is available at the official website of JEECUP.
JEECUP will announce seat allotment results of first round on July 5 and candidates will be able to see their allotment status through official website only. If a candidate is allotted a seat, he/she will have to deposit Rs 3000 as security fee, which will be adjusted in the course fee later at the time of admission. These candidates will have two choices; Freeze and Float. If a candidate is satisfied with the alloted seat, he/she will have to select Freeze option and he/she will not be able to participate in the counselling any further. However, if a candidate selects Float option, he/she will be allotted seat in the subsequent rounds of counselling.
