It’s been a while since AIEEE examination is over and you all must be eagerly waiting for results. Don’t you?

At the same time most of you must be planning and thinking about how to fill choices in AIEEE Online Counseling, what should be the sequence of choices and all.  It’s nice if you devote some time and thoughts to aforesaid points, as your whole career is going to depend on it. So it becomes a task worth giving some quality time. So we thought it’s better to provide you with some tips and points which might help you while undertaking your counseling and may help in reducing some stress and eventually make this crucial task easier. So here we go:

  1. Whenever you are sitting for filling up choices at the online portal, make yourself pretty comfortable. Leave all the stress and garbage thoughts outside the login window itself.
  2. While filling the choices, always give preference to branch rather than college. It doesn’t mean that if you are interested in a particular branch say Computer Science, you started selecting all the colleges from A-Z having CSE branch in it. Don’t do it..!! In such case select only top 10 colleges of your preference and select the CSE branch in it. Then choose your next preferred branch and select colleges in the same fashion as done before. This will increase your chances of getting your branch in a good college according to your branch and college preference.
  3. Don’t select those colleges in which you don’t want to go at all. Some students think that selecting all the colleges increases their chances of getting a college of their choice, but it’s a wrong assumption. It only increases complications and may also lead you in an allotment which you never wanted when you could have got a better option.
  4. Refer opening and closing rank of previous year and make decisions accordingly. You can check it here.
  5. Try to contact a person who is currently studying in the respective college or your mentor. You can opt for Eduarena Personal Mentorship package here.
