The first round of choice filling for the online counselling for the AYUSH (Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani, Homoeopathy) under-graduate courses (2022-2023) can be done till November 14.
The candidates need to register online on the website www.aaccc.gov.in to submit their choices. They would not be given another opportunity to modify the information provided while applying. The candidates would be debarred if they register more than once.
There are four rounds- 1, 2, 3 (mop-up) and stray vacancy. For the first three rounds, registration can be done on the specified dates. But from the second round onwards, the seats would be less. Merely getting the allotment does not make the candidate eligible for admission. The candidate should also have all the stipulated qualifications.
