6 Counselling Rounds Instead Of 7 For JEE Main 2020, Proposes IIT-Delhi

Last updated on May 14th, 2020 at 08:57 am

IIT Delhi has proposed to conduct 6 rounds instead of 7 for JEE Counselling process. The allotment of around 40,000 seats in more than a 100 top engineering institutions which also includes, IITs, NITs, IIITs and GFTIs, is usually conducted in 7 rounds of JEE Counselling over a period of 4 to 6 weeks.

According to a report by The Indian Express, the proposal to drop one round of counselling was initiated by IIT Delhi which has now been conveyed to Joint Implementation Committee for approval. This committee comprises Chairmen of all IITs, while IIT Delhi is the conducting authority for JEE Advanced 2020.

Once this proposal has been accepted by all the IITs, it will be shared with the Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB), which coordinates admissions to NITs, IIITs and IIEST, Shibpur. This means that the proposal of IIT-Delhi will in turn temporarily change the admission process of all the Centrally Funded Technical Institutions in India as the admission process is now conducted in a joint manner by Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA).

Declaration Of Results Within A Week

Along with this proposal, IIT-Delhi also proposed to declare the results or the All India Rank for JEE Advanced 2020 within a week of conducting the examination, now that it is conducted in a computer-based environment. Normally, the announcement of results is done after 2 weeks of successfully conducting the examination.

With the early declaration of JEE Advanced results and 6 rounds of counselling, IITs and other institutions will be able to begin their batches for first-year students around the month of October 2020. JEE Advanced 2020 is proposed to be held on 26th August 2020, which has been postponed due to COVID-19 crisis and the ensuing lockdown all over the country. According to the plan, results would be announced by the end of August 2020 and the 6 counselling rounds will be completed in the month of September 2020. Under normal circumstances, new sessions in IITs are started during the last week of July.

Is 7th Round Relevant?

In a statement from the official source, it was told that the 7th round of counselling was not relevant for most students. The chances of seats remaining vacant were very less as last rounds of counselling were used to shift to a more preferred branch or course rather than filling up a vacant seat. This proposal was made after analysing the data of past two years of counselling for JEE.

UGC issued a tentative academic calendar where it was proposed to begin the classes for a new batch of students ideally around the first week of September 2020. But with growing COVID-19 cases in the country and the lockdown imposed by the government, JEE Main 2020 and JEE Advanced 2020 have now been delayed by over 3 months. This has made it impossible for colleges to start the batches before October 2020.
