Considering the huge delay in JEE Main & JEE Advanced exams due to COVID-19 pandemic, this will be the final round for admissions counselling of IITs. The result for seat allotment round 6 has been released by JoSAA @ josaa.nic.in on 7th November 2020. However, in contrast to IITs, there will be two more rounds of counselling for NIT+ system colleges. These include NITs, IIEST Shibpur, IIITs and GFTIs. The two special rounds of counselling will be conducted by CSAB 2020.
What To Do Next?
CSAB NEUT 2020 Counselling has already commenced from 23rd October and results for Round 1 will be announced soon @ csab.nic.in.
Opening and closing ranks for Round 6 will also be updated on the JoSAA portal very soon for all JoSAA Participating Institutes. Candidates who want to take admission will now have only these options-
- Freeze – To accept a seat and pay seat acceptance fees
- Withdraw – To decline a seat and exit from the counselling process.
Rules For Participating In CSAB Special Rounds for NIT+ Colleges
Candidates who want to take part in CSAB Special Rounds have two choices-
- Pay the partial fees, retain the seat allotted in JoSAA Counselling and participate in CSAB Special counselling.
- Do not pay any fees and directly participate in CSAB Special Counselling.
In the first case, the previously allotted seat will be kept allotted and students can participate in CSAB Counselling for chances of upgrading to a better course. However, if a candidate reports to the institute before CSAB Counselling, he/she will be ineligible for special rounds.
In the second case, students will lose the seat allotted to them in JoSAA Counselling Round 1 to Round 6. But they will be eligible for CSAB Special Rounds.
