Choosing Sainik School in E-counselling


All India Sainik School Entrance Examination (AISSEE) 24 was conducted on 28 January 2024 for admission to classes 6th and 9th for academic session 2024-25. NTA will tentatively declare the result of the AISSEE 2024 examination between 12 March to 14 March 2024. Approximately 10 days after the release of the scorecard, the Sainik Schools Society will start the E-counselling process. During E-counselling, candidates have to submit their preferred choices of Sainik Schools for admission. If a candidate has scored marks greater than the cut-off of selected Sainik School, he/she gets a call for medical examination and document verification. In this post we provide all relevant details related to E-Counselling, choosing Sainik School in E-counselling, factors that play a role in the selection of Sainik School, etc.

Factors that play a role in choosing Sainik School in E-counselling

  1. Choice of Sainik School in Home State or Other State – The distribution of seats in Sainik Schools is state-wise and in all Sainik Schools 67% seats are reserved for candidates from home state and 33% seats are reserved for candidates from other states.
  2. Gender – The gender of the candidate plays an important role in the selection of Sainik School as seats are distributed according to gender. In all Sainik Schools 10% of total seats or 10, whichever is more, is reserved for girls.
  3. Category – The cutoff for all categories is different. The broad categories are Home-SC, Home-ST, Home-OBC, Home-Defence, Home-General, Other State-SC, Other State-ST, Other State-OBC, Other State-Defence, and Other State-General.
  4. Sainik School Previous Years Cutoff – The biggest factor in the selection of Sainik School is the previous year’s category-wise cutoff in different rounds of E-counselling. Candidates must choose Sainik Schools that have previous cutoffs around their obtained marks.  This will give them a fair chance of getting a call for medical. Now, the biggest question is where to get the previous cutoffs specific to the candidate’s category. Here, Saarthi-Sainik School E-Counselling Software developed by Shaurya Bharat is a boon to candidates. Using this revolutionary software, candidates have to enter their class, gender, category, choice of first Sainik School, marks obtained in AISSEE 2024, etc., and the software will suggest all choices of schools to the candidate in order of priority.
  5. Availability of seats – Another important factor to consider is the availability of seats in different categories in Sainik School. Students should always keep in mind the number of seats available for their particular category while choosing a Sainik School. The Saarthi software provides the number of seats available in a particular Sainik School in 2023 and 2024. Also mentions whether the number of seats has increased or decreased as compared to last year. This will help candidates make a wise decision.
