2. Fill up the form ( The first notice is published 15 days before the exam starts ). Choose the date and the shift of the examinations.

3. Give your exams.

4. See the results after it is published.

5. After the notice, fill up the priority form. For every constituent colleges, you will have to fill up a different form. You can include as many faculties you like in the given form, in the order of your interest.

6. Check for your name. If it is in, get admitted. If not, you might wait for the second list.

7. The colleges publish 8-9 lists. You may have to fill your priority form again after every three lists. ( Don't just focus on a single college till the last list, search for alternatives. You can switch your college even after admission, but for that, you will have to enable the " Switch Interest" option in the internet portal.

8. After the colleges start, IOE publishes another list if the seats are vacant. This time, only private college students can fill-up the form. So, this is a boon or advantage for private college students.
