UPSEE counselling process
UPSEE counselling is conducted in three rounds. After each round, candidates have three options regarding their allotted seats. They can freeze, float, or withdraw their seats. If candidates are happy with their allotted seats, they can freeze it and wait for the admission process to begin. However, if candidates want to apply for up-grading their seats, they can hold their present seats and apply for up-gradation via the float option.
The float option will enable them to hold on to their current seats and apply for the other better seats. Other than these two, there is a third option as well. If a candidate is not satisfied with the seat allotment, then he/she can withdraw their seats. Candidates can also withdraw their seats if they don’t want to continue with the counselling process. These three options of freeze, float, and withdrawal offer various flexible seat options to the candidates.
Each round of the UPSEE counselling follows a similar pattern. The first step is registration for counselling. After registration, candidates have to pay the registration fee. Then, they need to upload their documents to the official website and verify them. After that, candidates have to lock their choices and apply for seat allocation. After locking of choice, the seat allotment details are published in which candidates can know which colleges they are eligible for.
After the publication of seat allotment results, candidates can exercise any of the three options. They can freeze, float, or withdraw their seats as per their convenience. The same process is repeated three times, and then the process of counselling comes to an end. In each round, candidates get the option of freezing, floating, or withdrawing their seats. After the final round, the seats allotted would be final, and there would be no further changes in it.
