  • After the mock seat allocation, the students will have one another and final opportunity to edit the choices filled. After that, there will be around 6 rounds of seat allotment.
  • After each round, the students have to report to the respective reporting centers with the necessary documents and the fill the form of seat acceptance, wherein they will have to state whether they want the ‘Freeze’, ‘Slide’ or ‘Float’ option. Details on each of these options can be obtained here.
  • After all the rounds of seat allotment, the students directly have to report to the institute they have been allotted, during any of the 3 days of reporting time specified and failing to do so might result in cancellation of their admission.
