AIEEE Counseling Guide

Update: This guide was written for the purpose of AIEEE 2009 so the dates mentioned here are in accordance with 2009. Although this post caters to AIEEE 2009, most of the important points and counseling procedure is same for AIEEE 2010 so this post is still valid in context of AIEEE 2010

Now that the AIEEE result and counseling details are out, its time for the centralized counseling. Every year thousands of students make mistakes in the AIEEE centralized counseling. Such people don’t get into the college they deserve. Here is a complete walk-through of the AIEEE 2009 counseling procedure. This should answer all your questions regarding how to go about counseling and the procedure of seat allotment.

This year the counseling procedure is completely online and its very different from last year’s counseling procedure. Last year there were three rounds of counseling and the first part had 2 forms- Form 1 and Form 2(for dropout seats). This year the system is completely different. It would be a good idea to be through with the counseling procedure mentioned on the central counseling board website.

The first stage is registration which has already started on 8th. This is the simplest step and you should register yourself as soon as possible to get maximum out of the mock counseling. The next thing you need to do is to fill up your choices. This is going to be tough because there are a lot of choices available. It is very important to order the choices according to your preference. I know the interface of the site which happens to be designed by NIC makes it mentally and physically tiring to order all the choices but you have a lot of time to do this. Try to get all your choices in the right order as soon as possible to take full advantage of the indicative seat allotment during the mock counseling period which ends on 24th June.

This year there are four rounds of seat allotment. Till last year, if you were allotted a seat through a particular round of counseling, you were not considered in further rounds of counseling. This had disastrous consequences. People with poor ranks were able to fill up seats in top NITs through the latter rounds of counseling. However, this year the CCB has changed the rule and has made it fare for everyone. This year, once you are allotted a seat you will be given an option of participating in further allotment according to the choices submitted by you. You can either completely participate in further rounds of allotment or can select the option of considering better branches in the college allotted to you.

The last paragraph explains why I’m emphasizing on filling up your choices properly in the order you want. After you check out indicative seat allotment on 24th June, you should finalize your choices and check them thoroughly before locking them. Don’t forget that you need to lock your choices before 28th June 11:55pm. I would suggest you to lock your choices on 26th or 27th as the site might go down or might take a long time to load on 28th due to excess traffic. If you fail to lock your choices before the deadline-28th June 2009 11:55pm you will not be allotted any seat through AIEEE 2009 central counseling.

You should check the rankings of NITs before filling up your choices. You will also have to make a decision whether you want to go for college or for branch. Considering the nature of this year’s counseling, I would suggest you to go for the branch you want unless or until you are getting a very good college with some other branch. Don’t expect too much sliding after the 4 rounds of allotment as because of the new rules, you can’t expect miracles. If you’ve got a 10k rank you’ll get a seat that you deserve and if you’ve got a 20k rank, you’ll get what you deserve. As compared to AIEEE 2008, AIEEE 2009 Counseling and allotment will be more fair. The rank cutoffs for college admissions will be very different.

Please note that I’ve used the word ‘allotment’ everywhere and not ‘counseling’. The choices you lock before 28th June are your final choices and you can’t change them under any circumstances. In other words, there will be no further counseling. The further rounds of allotment will be done against vacant seats on the basis of the choices you initially submitted. I hope you understand how important it is to fill up the right choices. Don’t think on the lines-

X choice is impossible to get with a rank of 12,000

You should fill every choice you are interested in but be careful about the order of the choices. The change in the counseling procedure has given you a great opportunity to get what you deserve, utilize it well.

The following example should explain the procedure in brief-
Example-Pappu has got AIR 2000 in AIEEE 2009.
-24th June- Pappu’s indicative allotment- Mechanical in NIT Trichy.
-28th June- Last date for locking of choices. Let Pappu’s choices be- 1)NIT Trichy-ECE 2)NIT Warangal ECE 3)NITW Civil 4)NITW Mech
-1st Allotment- Civil in NIT Warangal. Papppu has 3 choices.-
*Take Civil in NIT Warangal.
*Participate in further allotment rounds for NIT Warangal.
*Participate in further allotment and hope for ECE in NIT Trichy.

I want every reader of this blog to be completely satisfied with what he/she does in the AIEEE 2009 central counseling. After reading this long post, I don’t want anybody making mistakes they would regret. Many of my friends want to go back in time to change the choices they filled up during the 2008 counseling. I hope you don’t develop similar feelings after the AIEEE 2009 counseling. All the best! May you get the college and branch of your choice!.

PS- This post could be named AIEEE 2009 Counseling For Dummies

PPS-A notice on central counseling board site says-

Seats in NITs will be made available for candidates (based on their AIEEE merit) from States/UTs., which do not have NITs., so as to keep the number of seats for such States/UTs., at the level of 2007, after making due adjustment for the number of seats filled by candidates of these States/UTs during normal counseling.

PPPS- If anybody is not clear about the seat distribution and reservation, here’s a clarification. For every NIT, 50% seats are reserved for Home State students(students with state of eligibility of the state in which the NIT is). Admission to the rest of the 50% seats is done on basis of AIR. However, in the last round of allotment(4th), there will be no reserved home state seats.

Update- CCB now allows you to unlock your locked choices and unregister yourself if you’ve locked your choices and filled up less than 20 choices. However, you can’t do it online and have to go to counseling centers to get that done. Have a look at the notice on the CCB site.

  6. sir

    can i expect mechanical at nagour , jaipur or bhopal after all rounds of counselling wth an air of 12000 i no i wnt get warangal wth a state rank of 2100 though i frm a.p

  7. My friends said that there are people in Warangal civil who got 13k last year….
    where do i have a chance of getting???

  8. please explain this extract from ccb website’s admission procedure link
    If a candidate gets seat allotment in any round against his/her preference in the list of choices given by him/her at the time of choice filling under home state quota, the same preference will be considered in subsequent rounds against vacant seats in All India quota as per the eligibility even though candidate has not given willingness to consider his/her choices for the subsequent rounds. In this case there will not be any change in the allotted seat, except for the change in quota from Home State to All India.

    please explain because officials aren’t replying

    1. Look, it means that if you get a seat through home state quota and in further rounds you are able to get the same seat through the All-India quota, you will get the All-India seat and the home state seat will be vacant for other candidates of the state.

      1. how do you think i can get mnit mech at such low rank you are the only one who told me of this neee i dont think i cant get civil also but thans dude for compliment

        1. Oh I seem to have made a mistake. I forgot about the level of competition in Rajasthan. You can’t get mech in any good NIT but you might just get IT in a decent NIT

          1. how do you think i can get it in any descent nit by my poor rank
            it seems you are talking abt soom poor nits like patna etc iam so much depressed that i dont know what ishould wait for

          2. IT is losing popularity. People tend to choose Civil over IT these days. My comment was made keeping this point in mind. By decent NITs I mean the ones better than Patna, Srinagar etc. Through my last comment I meant that your chances are very low but not 0.

  16. good morning naman,

      1. To add to what Naman has said – if you are allotted a seat you report to AI and you will be asked for your willingness to participate in further rounds of allottment. If you are not allotted any seat in the first round, you are automatically considered for the second round.

    I will easily get NIT raipur with electrical or electronics and may get bhopal, nagpur or other good ones.

    Are IIITs better than NIT raipur ??

    1. computer scince is best.u have to look for job after 4 years.iits are better than nit.but if u get ec or compuer scince go for nit nagpur

  27. Hi Naman,
    In the AIEEE counselling brochure I found that for “Verification of Documents” on first round seat allotment one needs the following

    document:

    ” Proof of place of examination centre of the final examination from the National Open School for
    candidates having Senior Secondary Certificate for determination of the State of Eligibility.”

    What is it? Is it the admit card of class 12th ? Do you know anything..??

    (Oh, I found out that you r reading in NIT bhopal. I may become your junior if I get Bhopal…)

  28. sir i m from gujarat. but i dont want to take in svnit is there any other good nit which i can get in ece or even eee. my air is 6390.

  30. hi naman
    my air is 5354 nd state(up) rank is 570
    by last year opening nd closing ranks electrical at mnnit alahabad opened at 5359 n closed at 6600.
    bt in the indicative im geting chemical enginering nd electrical,mechanical are nt available .
    an i found out that the reason fo this is online councelling due to which candidates with high rank who have alreay been alloted in iit have filled in choices and captured the top branches though they will not take admission through aieee.
    earlier people alloted through iits never atnd aieee councelling ,but this year scenario has changed/
    WOULD I BE ABLE TO GET ELECTRICAL O MECHANICAL ENGINEERING AT MNNI ALLAHABAD IN THE 2N COUNCELLING BCOS I WILL NT GET I IN TH 1ST COUNCELLING AS PER THE INDICATIVE THOUGH I SHOULD HAVE GOT IT???
    IF NOT THEN WOUL IT BE BETER O TAKE CIVIL IN DCE RATHER THAN CIVIL OR CHEMICAL IN MNNIT ALLAHABAD???
    IF THI IS THE CONDITION THEN THE 1ST COUNCELLING IS USELESS.

  31. I have an a.ir. 14,135 and gen-11,435 can I get abviiitm or iitmd or cs at any IIT presently I am getting JK Instute of Technology and apllied Physics Allabhad how is it please help!!!!!!

  32. A K Mishra sir, you have predicted that i will get admission for mechanical in nit nagpur in 3rd round. my aieee 2009 air is 13774(overall) and Maharashtra state rank is 902(overall). i an an open category boy.please suggest whether i should wait for 4th round of aieee 2009 councelling, if i dont get a seat in 3rd round or i should opt for highly reputed Mumbai university. the admissions of first round of Mumbai university will be over before last round of aieee councelling and i m sure that i will get a good college in Mumbai university in first round.

    1. whats are the date and what are the problems in trying both.only money ?are u required to deposit ur certificate.pl claify.

      1. the Maharashtra state engineering admission process is very very slow. the dates are not yet announced but first round is expected to be over just before 4th round of aieee counselling. private colleges in Mumbai university don’t return money easily after admission is cancelled. HSC,SSC,AIEEE certificates are also required to be deposited and the colleges dont return the certificates quickly after cancelling the admissions.

        1. there would be no change in 4th round as for ur rank is concerned.u wait for the third round then we can discuss then.do not worry

  33. talking abt second and third councelling
    air 22306 rajasthan
    point
    a question to you both gentle men
    1)my chances in average nit with good branch like mech ,it,electrical(even in last councelling)acc to new norms
    2)civil in good nits [top 8]

    by my last question naman told me of chances of it in decent nits though its looking impossible(but can be true in case of worst nits being decent)

    1. u can try patana ,raipur ,silchar,agartala.ucan not get civil in top nits.think other options than AIEEE if u have any.

  34. Hi,
    My sister has got a state rank of 671 (category gen rank-485) in TN. Does she stand any chance of getting a sat in NIT -trichy in further rounds of counselling under home state quota. As of now, she is not gting anything in NITT. And also if she joins say BIT-Deogarh and is allocated Barch in NITT, which sh takes up, will she b allowed to take engineering stream again if she is allotted a seat in NITT?

      1. Thanks a lot for replying. But if she is allocated seats in both arch and engg and wants to paricipate in further rounds of counselling for both of them, should she get 2 dd’s of 25k?

        1. As per the CCB information brochure, candidates allotted seats in both architecture and engineering will be given the option to retain only one of the allotments and the other allotment will be automatically cancelled.
