A total of 479,651 candidates appeared for both papers of the IIT-JEE, which was conducted on April 8. Of the total, 24,112 have secured ranks in various categories and 17,462 shortlisted for counseling for admission to 9,647 seats in the 15 IITs, IT-BHU, Varanasi, and Indian School of Mines-Dhanbad. Delhi-based Arpit Agrawal, a student of Modern Vidya Niketan in Faridabad, came in as all-India number one.
“We are not going to call everyone who got a rank. The number of people who will go in for counseling are more than twice the number of available seats,” said JEE-Chairman G.D. Reddy.
“Anyone who got a rank between 9,723 and 18,000 will not be called in for counseling. However, institutes like the Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology and the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, will admit candidates based on IIT-JEE results,” he said.This year 150,431 girls appeared in both papers of IIT-JEE, out of which 2,886 secured ranks and the first 1,908 were shortlisted for counseling.
“Online counseling began at noon on Friday. Shortlisted candidates are not required to report in person to any of the institutes for counseling,” said Mr. Reddy, adding that the candidate would be eligible on payment of the counseling fee of Rs.500.
“The last day to fill the choice of courses is 5 pm. on June 10.”
While the first seat allotments would be made on June 14, the second round would be released on June 25. The third and final rounds would be done on July 6.
“For the first time this year, an opportunity is provided to withdraw the accepted seat before the final round of the allotment. Candidates will be reimbursed for the same and will be permitted to write the exam next year,” said Mr. Reddy.
