Contact the Joint Apex Board immediately. You will be allocated a seat in subsequent rounds. The allocated seat shall be the same as what you would have got on the basis of revised marks were considered to begin with. This can be a supernumerary seat.


7. I belong to OBC-NCL/SC/ST category. However I registered for exam as General candidate. I have a caste certificate now. Can I change my caste before counselling?

No. You cannot. The Common Merit List and Category Rank List would be created before counselling itself and you won't get a category rank if you are registered as a general candidate.

8. I have got a category rank and a common rank? Which will be considered for counselling?

First the category rank will be considered for seat allocation. If a seat is not allotted then only the common rank will be considered.
