Counselling for Seat Selection Process

All most the professional courses entrance exams are over. In a few days results will be published and the next step is seat selection. Seat selection process is not so simple as much as it appears to be. This is the time where the destiny of the students for another four or five year will be decided. How to prepare for seat selection process? What necessary documents to be carried for counseling? How to select college or seat? This procedure you can follow for any kind of counseling of seat selection.

Before proceeding further how to make list of courses and colleges for selection we will have a look at what should be done. Almost all professional courses counseling authorities ask students to take a demand draft(D.D.) for specified amount before attending counseling process, there will be different category of seats such as Merit Seat, Higher Payment seat, Government seat in Government college and Government seat in Private college etc., be aware of it and take D. D. accordingly. Take the D. D. in the same place where you stay or at your native, it avoids unnecessary tension of taking D. D. at the place of counseling as it will be held at cities and also in case if you don’t select any seat you can cancel the D.D. easily at your native itself. Among documents don’t forget to take all marks cards, hall ticket of entrance exam, caste and income certificates(if any to claim reservation), if the entrance exam authority has issued marks sheet or score card or ranking card, take that also along with you. It is requisite to take all necessary above mentioned documents and demand draft along with you.

Now, the crucial step is how to select the college and course. First make a list of courses in which you like to take admissions. Suppose, if you want to give first preference to select seat in Electronics and Communication Engineering course make a list of colleges and number of vacant seats in it according to your ranking. Take help from your seniors or from people who have knowledge in this. Similarly make a list of colleges and number of seats for Computer Science, Information Science, Civil, Mechanical, E and E branches. After preparing the list keep it up to date. After going to the counseling hall, there will be large LCDs or seat matrix print outs which will be given for sale, take those and update your personal list. Once your name is called or your turn comes in the order of rank, just walk in and select the seat which is vacant and of your choice from the list you made. Don’t be panic if the seat is not thee in the college you wish to select seat, as there will be parallel counseling sessions and chances are there that others may select the same seat which you planning for. Just take seat in the next college from your list. This is the advantage of making list as it avoids unnecessary tensions and selecting seats in colleges which you never heard of.

Once seat selection is over, proceed to take admission order or follow whatever instruction you get at counseling center. Now you got the seat, if you are happy with the college, go to college and report with in specified date. If you want to wait till casual vacancy round wait till that. One more thing, don’t discuss with other candidates at the counseling hall about the list you made, there may be chances that the person who have higher ranking may take the seat which you planned for and all your labour put in preparing list will be in vain.
