About JEE Main Seat Allotment 2024 Procedure

JEE Main seat allotment is the most crucial step to getting admission to your desired course and college. Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) published the JEE Main 2024 result and conducted the counselling process. Candidates are advised to know a few information before taking a part in the counselling procedures like how many seats in JEE Main, previous years’ cut-off, and so on.

In this article, you will learn the steps involved in JEE Main seat allotment procedures which include registration, choice filling, result checking, counselling sessions, documents verification, and further procedures.

What else you will learn, let's check out. 

JEE Main Seat Allotment 2024 Registration

To register for the JEE Main Seat Allocation process, a candidate is required to log in to the JoSAA portal. A candidate has to use its JEE Main Application number and password to log in for the registration process. Once you log in to the portal, you need to fill in the required details. 

JEE Main Seat Allotment 2024 Choice Filling

When a candidate registers himself successfully on the official site of JEE Main, he has to fill in the desired college and course/branch. We advised candidates to check the previous year's cut-off of various courses of respective colleges and then fill in the seat. If a candidate fills in his choices as per the marks he obtained and follows the previous year’s trend, his probability of getting admission to a filled college increases.

For choosing or locking a seat, various options are available to you. Once you check your result, you can select any of the options as per your requirement.
