Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Advanced 2018 counseling and seat allocation registration process began on Friday, June 15th, at 5 pm. Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) is responsible for the counseling process which will be conducted in seven rounds. Candidates who have cleared the JEE Advanced 2018 exam can register for the counseling process at the official website, jossa.nic.in.

JoSAA counselling process for JEE (Advanced) 2018 candidates:

  1. Candidates will have to register on this link to partake in the counseling process. Candidates can log in using their JEE Main 2018 roll number and password.
  2. After registration, candidates will have to log in using their JEE (Main) 2018 roll number and password and give their choices and preference for seat allocation, and lock their choices.
  3. Once candidates get a seat allocated, they will have to download the “Provisional Seat Allotment letter” and e-challan. The e-challan is needed for payment of the seat acceptance fee.
  4. Candidates will have to then pay Rs.45,000 (Rs.20,000 for reserved categories) as the seat acceptance fee. The fee can be paid through SBI Net Banking. Candidates must take a printout of the fee payment for further use.
  5. After paying the seat acceptance fee, students need to report to the allotted centre for document verification. The seat will be confirmed only after document verification is done.
  6. Once the seat is confirmed, students must report before the due date to the allotted institution to complete their admission formalities.
