I had my AIEEE central counseling today.It was a really tiring experience as over 400 candidates reported at the Delhi counseling center.Here are the details of the on-campus online counseling procedure.
Documents Required(With one copy)
-AIEEE Admit Card
-AIEEE Score Card
-Class X mark sheet and certificate
-Class XII mark sheet and certificate
-Demand Draft of Rs.15,000
First,you need to queue to get a token number.Then wait for your turn to get a file with a declaration form issued.After that,arrange all documents in the file and fill up the form.Now you need to get the documents verified and wait in a room for your file.Then you will be called to finalize your choices online.
Sounds simple?I reached the center at 9:30am.I got a token number at 11:00am(I was number 360).I got a file at around 2:30pm and the procedure of verification of documents took another 30-50 minutes.Finally,I entered the counseling room at 3:30 PM.And by the time I collected my fee receipt and completed all formalities it was 4:00pm.The people at the center had a time limit of 1 hour in mind and they were sort of giving the people taking more than that tough time.
Parents are not allowed in the counseling room.Thus I could hear people saying on the phone
Mummy,Silchar mein bharoon?.......
I was lucky to sit in front of the window so I just called my Dad in front of it and easily cleared a few doubts that had found their way into my mind all of a sudden.The on-campus online counseling website was 100 times better than the off-campus online one.Unlike the off-campus counseling,the on-campus one didn't reload the entire page in order to rearrange options.
Then you have to freeze your choices for Form1 and Form2 and to to an official to lock your choices and get a print-out of your form 1 and form 2.I was finished with everything by 5:15pm.
Here are some tips-
1.Don't fill too many choices in Form1 if you have hope from Form2 as if you get alloted to a crappy place by form 1,you won't be considered for drop-out seats.
2.Either reach the counseling center at 6:00 am or at 3:00pm.The reason being that the guy who reached at 8:30 am left at 10:30.I reached at 9:30 am and left at 5:15pm.A guy arrived the center at 4:00pm and left at the time I left.
The allotment is generally put up on the CCB website by 12 midnight.You can download the allotment letter and report at the institute by 20th July to complete admission formalities.
Update-I was alloted Energy Engineering at Maulana Azad NIT Bhopal.I never expected getting to a good NIT in a good branch with an All India Rank of 14191.
