The below section overviews the step by step process for JoSAA Choice Filling 2020 which will help you through the process:

Steps

Process

Step 1: Registration

Visit the official website and click on the link for JoSAA registration (Click Here). The candidates will have to log in to the portal using JEE Main or JEE Advanced application number and password. All the details of the candidates will be fetched from the JEE Main/Advanced database, however, the students can also modify the information wherever allowed. 

The candidates can also change their JEE Main/Advanced password at the time of JoSAA registration. The candidates are advised to note down the password which will be used for the further JoSAA counselling process. 

Step 2: Choice Filling

After the JoSAA registration, the candidates will have to exercise the JoSAA Choice Filling through which they will have to enter the choice of colleges and courses in which they want to get admission.

The candidates can fill as many choices as available to them according to their rank. The choice filling must be done in the order of priority which means you have to give the first priority to the college/ course which you want the most and so on.

Step 3: Choice Locking

After the JoSAA choice filling is completed, the candidates will have to lock their choices before the final date. In case any candidate fails to lock the choices, the choices made will be automatically submitted on the final date.

JoSAA Seat Allotment 2020

JoSAA will conduct a centralised counselling process through which the seats will be allocated to the candidates. The JoSAA Seat Allotment 2020 will be done on the basis of rank obtained by the candidates in JEE Main/ Advanced along with their preference of choice filled. 

After the seat is allotted to the candidates, they will have the option to either freeze, float, slide or withdraw their allotted seats. See the below table to understand how these options work:

Freeze

If the candidates are satisfied with the colleges/ courses allotted to them, they can accept the allotment and freeze their seats.

Float

If the candidate wants to keep the seat allotted but also wants to participate in the next round of counselling, he/she can choose the float option. This way, he/she can choose either seat allotted to them.

Slide

If the candidate is satisfied with the college allotted but wishes to change the course within the same college, then he/she can choose the slide option.

Withdraw

If the candidate has accepted the allotment but is not satisfied with the seat allotted & doesn’t want to get admission to the college, he/she can withdraw their seats by visiting the institutes.
