Admission to all the academic programmes offered by these institutes will be made through a single platform from this year.
All candidates who have appeared in JEE (Main) 2015 are eligible to register for seat allocation in the NIT system (except IITs and ISM).
All candidates who have declared qualified in JEE (Advanced) 2015 are eligible to register for seat allocation in all participating institutes, ie the IITs and ISM.
As per the rules, a candidate has to choose and apply to a series of academic programmes in a certain order of priority.
In the context of seat allocation, ‘academic programme’ refers to the combination of academic programme and institute. For example, four-year BTech in computer science and engineering at IIT Bombay is referred to as an ‘academic programme.’ Another example of an academic programme is four-year BTech in biotechnology at NIT Calicut.
A seat to the highest possible choice of academic programme is allocated to the candidate considering the factors including the category of the candidate, the position of the candidate in rank list(s), the prioritisation of academic programmes by the candidate, the availability of seats in different seat categories/seat quotas for which the candidate is eligible for.
