CSAB: Central Seat Allocation Board is handling JEE Main counselling process. The AIR of JEE Main will be handed over by the Central Board of Secondary Education to CSAB for JEE Main counselling. CBSE has no role in JEE Main counselling.

Spot Round: Earlier there used to be only four rounds of seat allotment. But from this year onward an extra round of seat allotment has been included in JEE Main counselling. The fifth round is called spot round. To participate in spot round a JEE Main candidate has to register before fourth round of seat allotment. The registration is only of those candidate who have missed the registration on     8 -12 July i.e.  before the first round.

Primary difference between “First Four Rounds” and “Spot Round” is that in the Spot Round a candidate pays the fees in advance and thereby agrees to accept the seat if allocated to him. However, if a candidate has paid the initial fee in earlier rounds and participates in spot round (under different categories), he/she need not to pay the spot round  fee again. There is no provision of “Fees refund” paid for spot round, if the candidate chooses not to accept the seat.   

    • In Spot Round, both Government Funded Technical Institutes (NITs, IIITs and other GFTIs) and Self Financed Technical Institutes (SFTIs) will participate.
  • For spot round, candidates are advised to carefully choose their institutes and branches, as there is no provision of fee refund if one chooses not to join the allotted institute.
  • In Spot Round the collected fee will not be refunded if seat is allocated to a candidate. The collected fee will be sent to the allocated Institute by CSAB-2014 even if the candidate does not take admission there. However, in case no seat is allocated to a candidate the collected fee will be refunded to the candidate by CSAB-2014.

Options I, II and III: This is pertaining to considering choices of preference higher than the currently allotted seat.

  • Option I means all the choices of higher preference be considered in the next round.
  • Option II means only the higher preference choices within the currently allotted institute be considered in the next round.
  • Option III means the candidate wants to freeze the currently allotted seat.

State of eligibility: The state from which the candidate has passed his/her qualifying examination.

Internal sliding: When there are some vacancies in an institute, students who have joined that institute are given an opportunity to participate in the sliding. Students interested in change of branch submit choices of ALL the branches in that institute in the order preference. Choices of students are processed as per their AIR and change of branch may occur for some of the students.
