Steps After Selecting Sainik Schools

On or before the final day of choice filling of AISSAC E-Counselling, candidates must LOCK their selections. If candidates don’t lock their selections, the most recent choices saved will be locked automatically when the selection deadline arrives. 

The selections made by a candidate can be modified after they have been locked. Candidates may UNLOCK their selections on the portal by selecting the edit option, which is available after they have locked them before the choice-filling deadline. 

The last saved choices prior to unlocking will be taken into account for seat allocation if the candidate does not lock the options after unlocking.

After the deadline for choice filling, candidates will NOT be permitted to amend their choice list. This means that after the deadline for choice filling, candidates CANNOT change the order of their selections, ADD any more schools, or DELETE any schools from their priority list. 

Prior to the start of each Round, candidates will once more have the opportunity to fill out a school preference form and rank their top choice(s) of schools. 

Candidates will be able to register again for each Round. The newly registered candidate for the open school seat in that round will have the option of choosing a new school to fill.
