After the Supreme Court's direction to continue the admission and counselling process for candidates who had qualified the JEE Advanced exam this year, the dates for the third round has been released. It is beginning from today. Candidates can check the seats vacant and filled on the official website
The third round of the JoSAA counselling for JEE Advanced qualified students had been halted earlier due to a petition. As per the earlier schedule, the counselling process would have started on July 7. IITs have now released the revised schedule for the third round of JoSAA counselling that is starting today.
Dates and events to remember
- Students who are allocated a seat in the third allotment will be able to accept or withdraw seats by reporting at one of the Reporting Centres for 3rd round from July 11 to July 13, 2017.
- On July 11 and July 12, the timing to report is between 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
- On July 13, students would be able to report from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.
Why was JoSAA counselling delayed?
Last week on Friday (July 7), the Supreme Court had directed the IITs to halt the counselling and admission process in response to a plea which sought a new merit list to be released because of the 'bonus marks' awarded.
The Supreme Court, however, dismissed that plea and gave the nod for the IITs to could go ahead with the process after giving an undertaking that no such incidences would occur in future. The decision to halt the process had created panic among students as two rounds of allotment had already been over with almost 30000 allotments done with.
