Refinements in the AIEEE counseling and admission process ushered
Refinements in the AIEEE counseling and admission process
ushered in by the Central Counseling Board (AIEEE 2011) will keep the
not-so-serious students out of the fray this year. This refinement in the form of
spot round seat allotment is also aimed at cutting down the number of vacant seats
in the NITs, IIITs and government funded central and state institutions, from 5%
last year to a targeted level of 2%.
Chairman of CCB Sandeep Sancheti, also director of NIT-K, told TOI here on Wednesday,
8th June 2011 that since the process of filling up of choices and choice-locking
in the online process is free, students were playing with the system in the previous
years. Students not getting seats of their choice as the online rounds in counseling
progressed were not turning up for admission leading to seats remaining vacant.
To address this issue, the CCB this year has reduced number of online counseling
rounds from seven to five. After the five rounds of online counseling, CCB on August
9 will introduce what it terms is internal sliding, where candidates already admitted
to an institute depending on vacancy, can opt for higher branch of learning, based
on choices filled by them than what has been allotted to them. The remaining vacancies
will be up for grabs in the spot round.
Students who may not have got a branch of their choice in five rounds can go to
CCB website from August 11 to 13 where the final list of vacancies in all the institutions
that are part of the counseling is put up and go in for fresh filling of choices
and locking the same.
