  • Offers can be viewed as per the time window (a priori schedule dates) for viewing and decision making.


  • After an admission offer is made (Excluding the Final / LAST round of offers), the candidates will have THREE options on the Online Application Portal:

    • 1) A candidate can select any one (only) offer out of the available offers.
    • 2) Candidate will have three options as described below:
    • Option 1: Accept and Freeze
    • Option 2: Retain and Wait
    • Option 3: Reject and Wait



  • This rule is specifically brought in COAP 2020 to clear stratification. A candidate can choose "Retain and wait" on a specific offer only twice.


    Case1: If an institute ABCD offers you "Thermal Engineering" in Round 1, and you choose "Retain and Wait", and if the same is offered in Round 2 and Round 3 as well, the candidate will not have the option of "Retain and Wait" during Round 3. He/ She has to choose either "Accept and Freeze" (or) "Reject and Wait", only.


    Case2: If an institute ABCD offers you "Thermal Engineering" in Round 2, and you choose "Retain and Wait", and if the same is offered in Round 3 and Round 4 as well, the candidate will not have the option of "Retain and Wait" during Round 4. He/ She has to choose either "Accept and Freeze" (or) "Reject and Wait", only.


    Case3: If an institute ABCD offers you "Thermal Engineering" in Round 1, you choose "Retain & Wait". However, if the same institute ABCD offers your higher preference, "Design Engineering" in Round 2 and you again choose "Retain and Wait", if the same "Design Engineering" is offered in Round 3 and Round 4 as well, candidate will not have the option of "Retain and Wait" during Round 4. He/ She has to choose either "Accept and Freeze" (or) "Reject and Wait", only.

  • The candidates who choose “Accept and Freeze" in a particular round of offers, will not be considered for higher preferences in the subsequent round of offers.

  • The admission offer release window for participating Institutes and PSUs will be the same. The offer release window will be operated at a particular interval. However, depending upon the selection process, some participating Institutes may skip some window(s) and offers may be released in any of subsequent window(s).


  • Not necessary. Depending upon the selection process, some Institutes may skip some offer release window(s) and offers may be released in any of subsequent window(s). Further, some institutes may operate additional round(s). For additional rounds, the procedure followed for offers will be described on the respective institute's website.


  • No. A candidate can select only one offer out of available offers. All other offers (if any) will be considered as rejected in the existing round.


    • If a candidate does not access the COAP or does not make a decision during a particular round of offers, then all offers made during that round will be considered as 'Reject' by the candidate. Nevertheless, in case, if the candidate has given higher preferences, then the candidate will be considered for the higher preferences in the subsequent round(s) of offers.
    • If the candidate has made the decision of 'Retain and Wait' in any of the previous rounds but does not access the COAP or does not make a decision (or not clicking 'Submit') during any subsequent round of offers, then all offers made during that round will be considered as Rejected by the candidate.
