JoSAA 2020 Mock Allotment is conducted before the actual seat allocation. Mock Allotment helps candidates to know their chances in their desired colleges based on their rank and preference. Post knowing this, candidates can then modify their selected choices of colleges and courses accordingly.
After two mock allocations, Final JoSAA Seat Allotment is held in 7 rounds. The registered candidates are allocated seats based on the performance in the qualifying examination (JEE Main or JEE Advanced) and choices filled during registration. Candidates can view the seat allotment result by logging into their account using their application number and password.
The provisional allotment letter has to be downloaded by the candidate and the seat acceptance fee of Rs. 35,000 (general) and 15,000 (SC, ST, GEN-PwD, GEN-EWS-PwD, OBC-NCL-PwD, SC-PwD or ST-PwD) is to be paid. Once the seat acceptance fees is paid, candidates will have to report to the reporting center (RC) for document verification.
However, if a candidate is not satisfied with the seat allotted to him/her they will have the following options to proceed further.
Floating: This option is for those candidates who wish to accept the offered seat but also are looking for a seat in a better/higher preferred college or course.
Freezing: If a candidate exercises this option, it will indicate that the candidate has accepted the allotted seat and does not wish to participate in further rounds.
Sliding: If this option is used, it will mean that candidates have accepted the allotted seat, however, if admissions are open in a better course in the same institute then he/she will go for upgradation.
Lastly, all the candidates will have to report to their allotted colleges to confirm their admission by paying remaining academic fees.
Candidates have to bring the following set of Original documents, wherever applicable, and a set of self-attested photocopies to the reporting center. The documents must be arranged in the following order. After document verification, photocopies will be retained by the Reporting Centre and the original documents will be returned. The format of the required documents is available at the JoSAA portal (Business Rules).
