Counselling Procedure

Candidate should select the counselling venue from the list of centres available in the online test booking system before they download the e-hall ticket.


The rank, counselling schedule, venue and other relevant details, will be made available in the website along with the announcement of results. Candidates should ensure that they fulfill all the eligibility requirements mentioned in the prospectus before they report for counselling. Only the candidates whose ranks are included in the counselling schedule are required to attend the counselling.


The physical presence of the candidate at the counselling is mandatory. If a candidate is prevented by unavoidable circumstances from being physically present for the counselling, he/she may authorize another individual to represent him/her at the counselling. This representative must carry the authorization in a format, CLICK HERE for format and bring all the documents and the full fees. Absence of the candidate or his/her representative at the indicated reporting time and date will result in the instantaneous forfeiture of any claim for a seat.


Only the candidate/representative will be allowed into the counselling hall. They will be called in the order of their ranks and offered the seats available at that point of time. They are permitted to choose any of the seats available during their turn. Ties will be resolved in the manner described below:


  • The Net Average Score (NAS) obtained during the qualifying examination will be calculated by taking the gross average marks of all the Board / University examinations and subtracting a factor determined on the basis of the number of failures. The tied candidates will be re-ranked on the basis of NAS.
  • In the event of NAS of two (or more) tied candidates being identical, the candidate with fewer failures will be ranked higher.

For the purpose of this rule, each failure in a subject in a (semester/year) Board/University examination will be reckoned as one failure. Non-appearance in a particular subject in an examination for whatever reason will also be counted as failure.


Successful candidates will be allotted seats according to their rank and number of seats available. The choice of course made by the candidate / representative is final and binding and cannot be altered later under any circumstances.
