Someone showed me CCMT brochure this time. It seemed unnecessarily complex but due to lack of coordination from non participating Institutes this might be the best they could do. Anyway for CSE, I'll try to demystify many things.

First, this is what a typical candidate must do:

  1. Fill the choices in the order they prefer. If you do not have a preference going by last year filling is not so bad - Last year stats
  2. Until you are allotted a place, you need not do anything
  3. If you are allotted never take "Freezing" option unless you are 100% sure you do not want any option higher -- but int hat case why they were given higher? Anyway use this with care
  4. Sliding choice is also similar. It is to be used when a candidate liked the institute so much and does not want to move out
  5. Floating should be the default option

Regarding Internal Sliding

This happens after 3rd round on June 11 and NSR vacancy listing on July 4. What happens here is if a seat in any department becomes vacant, someone who is allotted seat FOR ANY PROGRAM in THAT INSTITUTE is given that seat in order of merit. In my opinion this is against overall merit and is a sick procedure. Anyway that is how it is and they have at least made this public. So, now candidates have to use more logic while seat filling. I'll try to give some inputs. There is a 3 week gap for internal sliding. During this time many research admission lists will be published starting from IISc., and at least 30 people would be moving away from NITs. Also this time PSU allotment might come around this time which can cause more sliding. So, if you have a preferred institute, do fill for ALL programs you are eligible there.

NSR Rounds

NSR round is less of a lottery as they publish the vacancy and allotment happens in order of merit. But due to internal sliding we can never know if any branch seat will get vacant. Usually the highest preferred program (say Computer Science) in a college, gets fully filled during Internal sliding and the following program (say Information Security) seats come for NSR round. But this round is not meant for poor general/OBC candidates as they have to pay  Rs 42,200 for this.

My rank is low (AIR 2256) and I'll get only lower NITs. I was thinking I will wait for spot round. Now should I register and fill in all the choices now only or wait for spot round? Like, can I apply for spot round if I haven't registered now? Do I have to pay the registration fees two separate times?
You need not have to register for both. But as I had told due to Internal sliding not all seats will be available for spot- most of the available seats will be of Information Security or the second preferred choice by CSE students. If I were you I would have given my choices such that I might get CSE via Internal sliding at my preferred institute(s). This is of course only if I do not get IIITs and I do not have any job.
my gate score - 689 (obc ncl).

should i fill CCMT? OR I'll get iit ( filled only IITK/KGP/G/HYD/P)
Sir how good is IIITB in terms of placements. They don't publish placement stats online. The world class faculty there is a good enough reason to join. But I'm from a middle class family and placements are also a big concern for me. So please tell me whether it will be a safe choice.
@Rajnish Should get in top 5 IITs till around rank 500 and others till around 1000.

@Kaushik "World class faculties" implies good placements. Or the placement you get is directly proportional to the quality of education you get. The advantage of old IITs is that even if you go there and do nothing, still you get placed well.
@Arjun Sir. Can IITG and IITR be considered as old IITs?
ofcourse bro...... IITG/R r old iit.

nd IITH z also GREAT nd BEST den top nits.
Should IIIT Allahabad be preferred over NITs for research?
Hello,CCMT 1st round has been alloted.Now I have been allotted and want to set willingness as floating.Should I pay seat acceptance fee and report to RC by 25th May to set willingness? Or wait for 2nd round and then if get preferred college then pay seat acceptance fee and report to RC and set willingness?

I got confused from their flow chart.Please help,urgent.
Yes pay the fees. After that you'll be able to download the willingness declaration form.
