During counseling, candidates have the opportunity to choose their preferred courses and colleges based on their ranks and the availability of seats. The final selection is based on the rank secured and choices filled during counseling. Successful candidates can secure admission to various engineering, pharmacy, and architecture courses in West Bengal colleges based on their preferences and merit.
