Admission across all these institutes will be done via a single platform. The joint seat allocation process has been introduced to make the whole admission process smoother, more effective, transparent, and faster.

JoSAA 2024: Steps to Register & Choice Filling 

Candidates who qualified for the JEE Main and Advanced 2024 exam must register for the JoSAA Counselling and seat allotment process. The registrations for this will be done online only.

Aspirants can go through the below step-by-step process of JoSAA registration and choice-filling to better understand the complete process.

Step 1: Registration

The first step candidates need to take is to register for the counselling process. Visit the official website of JoSAA and log in with the JEE Main roll number and password. If the candidate is JEE Advanced qualified, then use the JEE Advanced passcode to complete the registration.

Candidates are advised to please cross-verify their details as they can only update their contact information.

Step 2: Choice Filling

After completing the registration process, candidates must choose their preferred branch and colleges and lock in their choices. The choice-filling process is free; students have ten days to complete it.

Step 3: Choice Locking

Candidates must remember that the last step of the registration process is to lock in their selected choices. It’s important to confirm and review their choices, as changes will not be accepted once the choices are locked. Take a printout for future reference.

JoSAA 2024 Seat Allotment Process:

JoSSA 2024 Mock Seat Allotment:

The authorities will conduct a mock seat allotment to help the candidates determine their chances of admission into their desired colleges and branch. If candidates are unsatisfied with the allotted seats during the mock seat allocation, they may change their order preferences accordingly.

JoSAA 2024 Seat Allotment:

The final JoSAA 2024 seat allocation will be conducted in 5 rounds following the mock seat allocation. Candidates are assigned seats based on their JEE Main and JEE Advanced qualifying marks and selected preferences.

After the seat allotment process, candidates can choose any one of the following options:

  • Freeze: Candidates who are happy with the seat they have been assigned and do not want to participate in the further rounds of the counselling can freeze their seat.
  • Float: Candidates who want to accept the seat they have been assigned but are also open to upgrading and admission to higher-preferred institutes or courses must choose this option.
  • Slide: Candidates who want to confirm their allotment but are also open to upgrade and admission to higher-preferred courses in the same institute must choose this option.

JoSAA 2024 Seat Acceptance:

After the allotment of seats and downloading the allotment letter, candidates need to pay the seat acceptance fee of Rs. 35,000/- for other categories and Rs. 15,000/- for reserved categories.
