With the onset of a new academic year, the entire arena of the country is buzzing with anticipation as the students who had already appeared for the 2018 JEE MAINS examination are now waiting for the counselling process to commence. It is the responsibility of each university or state to conduct a separate counselling process for the admission of the students into the various colleges under their domain for different courses related to technology. The new and the young creative minds are waiting for a perfect opportunity so that they can shape up their skills accordingly and appear as more daunting individuals on a global level. We all know that there are many successful Indian engineers sitting at a respectable and worthy position in the international level and those people who have created a beautiful image of our country to others are becoming the inspiration of the new generation.
With their success on the mind, a large number of students have successfully completed their JEE MAINS papers, the last of which was conducted on April 15, 2018. And now, with the result knocking at the door, the excitement and the anticipation of the unpredictable have doubled up and the candidates are waiting for the various institutional committees to start the counselling procedure.
As the time is nearing, Guru Govind Singh Indraprastha University is gearing up for the nearing admission process to the different colleges under their domain. The University officials have declared the expected schedule timing and the candidates must follow the schedule since most of the process will be done online and that is why, once the deadline is over, that part will be locked down by the system. There are a number of steps that each candidate will have to follow before they can secure a seat in their favourite engineering colleges.
IPU CET counselling rounds for the 2018 academic year
IPU CET will demarcate the entire counselling procedure in three rounds, the third being the final and the decision maker around. According to the rules, a candidate can withdraw himself/herself from a particular round except the third if he feels like he can get a better college in the next round. However, while doing this, one must be aware of the fact that whatever result will be displayed in the third round will be the final decision and after that, no one can get an admission in any other college.
Steps for the IPU CET counselling procedure
Each student will have to take care of the mentioned steps carefully because each step has been assigned a time limit and hence, the job must be done before the deadline. Once the deadline is crossed, no one can have an access to the locked down portion of the counselling.
1. Online registration of the candidate
The first and the preliminary step that has to be done for entering the queue of the IPU CET counselling are registering online. The online registration form will be available on the official website. Apart from the already filled information from the JEE MAINS, the candidate will be asked to fill in some more specific details. One thing must be kept in mind during the registration process that the password one will be giving for IPU CET must be different from the one at JEE MAINS. Once the filling up will be complete, the candidate will have to submit the form for the automatic system evaluation.
2. Payment of registration fee
Anyone of the methods amidst internet banking, e-challan or online debit or credit card can do the online payment of the registration fee. This will be done only after the registration form has been evaluated by the system. The charge is non-refundable and the amount that has to be paid is Rs.1000/-
3. Filling up of the choice list online
After completing the registration process, the registered candidates can move on to the next step i.e. filling up of their preferred institutions with the preferred branches in a preference decreasing order. This will allow the candidate to have a good institution if his/her JEE MAINS rank is subtle.
4. Seat allotment by IPU CET
After the choices are submitted to the system, the actual counselling procedure will begin. As per the norms of the counselling committee, the candidate will be assigned an institution from their submitted choice list according to their JEE MAINS ranks and also the vacancy. The entire process will be done by the system itself and hence no one can interfere with the results.
