What is E-Counselling?

This post provides a deep insight into the Sainik School E-Counselling Process and the documents required at Sainik School allotted to the candidate.

  1. It is an online service through which candidates will be able to register and fill out their preferred school choices for admission to Sainik Schools and New Sainik Schools.
  2. The E-Counselling facility is available to all students who qualify for the AISSEE 2024 examination.
  3. Admission to 33 Sainik Schools and 35 New Sainik Schools is through e-counseling only.
  4. Candidates have to fill in their choices of schools based on their preferences and the availability of seats. The e-counseling portal usually lists available schools and the number of vacant seats in each. Candidates have to exercise the choice of 9 Sainik Schools (first choice already exercised during submission of online application) and 5 New Sainik Schools (If opted).
  5. Schools are allotted to the candidates based on the merit list and the choices filled by candidates. The basis of allotment of seats to the candidate is the rank of the candidate and the availability of seats in the preferred schools.
  6. Once a school is allotted to a candidate, they need to report at the allotted school for medical examination and document verification. The candidates confirm their admission by paying the required fees and submitting the necessary documents within the stipulated time.
  7. In case some seats remain vacant after the initial round of allotment, the e-counseling system may conduct subsequent rounds to fill those seats, allowing candidates on the waitlist to get a chance for admission.
