The following points should be considered when filling out the choice forms:

To fill their choices effectively, students should prioritise colleges in descending order based on their preferences. By considering the opening and closing ranks of colleges from previous years, students can understand the trends in college selection. It is advisable for students to include college branches ranked below the closing rank of previous years according to their interests and college priority list based on their rank. Before filling the colleges during JoSAA counselling, students should create a paper-based list of their preferred colleges and make informed decisions online to avoid mistakes. It is crucial for students to thoroughly review their choices before locking them, as changes will not be possible after the locking process
