Explaining the process, the defence ministry in its press release said, “The Sainik Schools Society (SSS) will publicise widely to intimate students to apply for e-Counselling along with timelines. A link will be sent to individual applicant students securing more than qualifying marks as prescribed by SSS from time to time through email or mobile numbers. At the same time, new Sainik Schools will be provided with suitable access rights to provide category and gender-wise information as well as number of vacancies.”

Students can register on the official website sainikschool.ncog.gov.in and verify their details. They will be able to select up to 10 schools as choice of allocation. Subsequently, the allocation of schools to the students will be carried out by the system based on their rank and choice of the schools and result will be declared through e-Counselling portal.

Registered students will then have to either accept the allotment or indicate the option to be considered for Round-II of Counselling or submit their unwillingness for further consideration.
