JoSAA 2023 Counselling: The joint counselling process, conducted by JoSAA, is currently underway for over 57,000 seats across 116 colleges nationwide, including IITs and NITs. To secure admission into IITs, NITs, and IIITs, students must meet the eligibility criteria set by their respective 12th boards, along with additional requirements.
As per the recently released data on the top 20 percentile for the past three years, numerous students who have achieved impressive ranks in JEE-Mains and Advanced find themselves unable to meet the board eligibility criteria of 75 percent or being within the top 20 percentile. Consequently, these students are being denied admission into prestigious institutions such as IITs, NITs, and IIITs.
The issuance of the top 20 percentile for the years 2021 to 2023 has caused significant distress to those students who passed their 12th examinations in 2021 and 2022 but were unable to meet the board eligibility requirements. Unfortunately, these students were deprived of the opportunity for board improvement. The delayed release of the top 20 percentile data for three years has further complicated matters. Additionally, several boards that previously had a top 20 percentile below 75 percent have witnessed an increase in the cutoff to more than 75 percent this year.
Within the board percentile released by JoSAA, there are several prominent state boards whose top 20 percentiles have not yet been disclosed. This includes the boards of Rajasthan, Bihar, Goa, Punjab, Odisha, and West Bengal, where the top 20 percentiles are still pending. It is worth noting that a significant number of students appearing in JEE examinations hail from these boards.
The initial mock seat allocation for the JoSAA joint counselling, facilitating admissions to IITs and NITs, is set to be released on Sunday at 11:30 am. This mock seat allotment will be based on the preferences submitted by students for their desired college branches up until 8 pm on June 24th. Following this, the second mock seat allotment will be published on June 27th. Students have the opportunity to register and fill out their choices until June 28th.
