The seat allotment procedure in DASA is conducted on the basis of SAT Subject Test Scores and preferences provided by the applicants. A merit list will be prepared by the DASA authorities on the basis of SAT Subject Test scores obtained by the applicants. The DASA seat allotment process is divided into the following steps:

In addition to the SAT Subject Test Scores, the eligibility factor will also be taken into consideration by the NITKS officials and thereafter will prepare the merit list.

Step 2: Preparation of Merit List on the basis of SAT Subject Test Scores

The SAT Subject Test Scores of all the eligible applicants will be considered for the merit list preparation. The scores of only those applicants will be considered who will submit the same before the last date.

Step 3: Allotment of Seats

As per the merit list prepared on the basis of SAT Subject Test Scores and choices provided by the applicants, seats will be allocated. Those on the top of the merit list will be allocated seats in their favoured institutions in their desired courses. If the applicants do not get a seat in their first preferred institute or course, their 2nd preference will come to the front and the process will go on. Those who will not be allocated seats in the first round of the seat allotment process, they will be eligible for allocation of seats in the subsequent rounds.
