Sainik School e-Counselling

The Sainik Schools Society (SSS) has re-opened the portal for the conduct of the second round of e-counselling to fill up 534 vacancies in the 10 newly approved Sainik Schools.

As per the official notification, the portal will live till June 26, 2022. Already, the Round-I of admissions to New Sainik Schools have been completed. All qualified candidates from the All India Sainik School Entrance Exam (AISSEE-2022) conducted by NTA, who had registered for Round-1 of e-counselling, are eligible to take part in the 2nd round of e-counselling.

However, these candidates are not eligible for the second round:

- Candidates who have been already admitted to any of Sainik schools (existing or newly approved).

- Candidates who were allotted a school out of their choice in Round-I but have not responded at all.

- Candidates who despite allotment of seats to them in the first round, have given unwillingness for the same.

- Candidates who confirmed their willingness for the school allotted in the first round out of their choices but did not pay the requisite fees towards admission to the school in the 1st round of e-counselling.

As per a PIB release, each qualified and willing candidate can give choice for a maximum of three schools in the second round of e-counselling.

A school-wise consolidated merit list will be prepared in the second round of counselling.

“Further, in view of approaching timelines for start of academic session after summer vacations, a reserved list of candidates will be prepared for three times the available seats for each of the 10 New Approved Sainik Schools to have enough willing candidates for the schools during second round of e- counselling,” the release added.
