The cut off for admission into various courses is set based on the performance of the candidates in OJEE. The merit list is then prepared based on OJEE results and the qualified candidates are invited to other processes after which they are granted admission into various courses. Candidates get a call letter, inviting them for the OJEE counseling. Candidates must carry this call letter to take part in the OJEE counseling.
Here, we talk about the counselling process for OJEE after the OJEE results have been declared. Read on to find out how you can take part in the counselling process based on your results.
Announcement of OJEE Results
OJEE results will be declared tentatively in two weeks after the exam is over. Candidates can check the result on the official website of OJEE. The rank of the candidates in the merit list depends on their OJEE results.
Candidates who have qualified with the required cut-off marks, decided by the exam conducting authorities, will be called for OJEE counselling. Candidates are required to download and print a copy of their OJEE rank card from their official website. It is mandatory for the candidates appearing for the counselling process to carry their valid rank card with them.
The details of the colleges offering Bachelors in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery (BHMS) and Bachelors in Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery (BAMS) will be given during the counselling round after due approval has been taken from the Central Council of Homeopathy or Central Council of Indian Medicine and the Government of Odisha.
Documents to be brought for Counselling process
The data that the candidates have mentioned in their application form will be duly verified during the counselling process. For the verification, candidates will have to carry the following documents with them.
- The rank card- It is mandatory for the students to carry their rank cards, without which, their application automatically becomes invalid.
- The online registration slip that the candidates get after filling the application form.
- Date of birth proof- Carry any relevant document such as class 10th admit card.
- Class 10 and 12 marksheets and passing certificates.
- Caste certificates, resident certificates, and any other category certificates (if applicable). It is mandatory for the candidates to produce a resident or nativity certificate from a concerned revenue officer - not below Tahsildar - if applying for BAMS or BHMS.
OJEE Counselling Rounds
The candidates can determine if they will be able to sit for the counselling process from their rank card. The counselling process is conducted online. Candidates need to register themselves for the online counselling process on the official OJEE website.
An OTP (one-time password) is generated on the registered phone number of the candidates while they sign up for the counselling process. The counselling will continue for three rounds.
In the first round, the candidates must lock in their college and seat choices as per the availability and their rank. This choice filling is done online when the candidates register for the counselling process.
Candidates can choose as many seats as they want. The seats, however, will finally be allocated to the candidates as per their rank. Once a seat has been allocated to the candidate, he/she will receive an SMS on their registered phone number with the college and seat details. Candidates can confirm their seat by paying INR 25,000 (online). Candidates can pay the fee via credit card, debit card or via net banking facility.
The second round will be like the first-round. However, in the second round, the choices will be based on the seats that are left vacant after the Allotment Round 1. If the candidate has not been allocated a seat in round 1, they will be allocated one in this round, depending on the availability of seats.
Candidates can select their preferred seats. There is no upper cap for the number of seats one can choose. If the candidates are allocated a seat this time, they will receive an sms on their registered phone number and they can choose to accept or reject their allotment. If the candidate accepts the allotted seat, they must pay INR 25000 to confirm their choice.
If there’s still some vacancy after the 2nd round, there will be a third allotment round. The third allotment round will be the same as the second round.
Once all the three rounds are over, the counselling process will officially be closed. Given below are some of the colleges that take part in the OJEE counselling process.
