CCMN-2023 is a common platform for candidates to apply for M.Sc./M.Sc.(Tech.) programmes, based on their JAM score of year 2023, in NITs, IIEST Shibpur and some GFTIs (for details, please refer to the list of Participating Institutes on the CCMN website). This centralized system provides a common and convenient platform for online counselling wherein the candidates can fill in a single online application from their homes and apply to all programmes in all the participating institutions to which they are eligible. The CCMN was initiated in the year 2015 for centralized admission for PG (M.Sc./M.Sc.(Tech.)) programmes and since then has undergone several changes to make it more student-friendly and included newer institutions under its umbrella. Various features such as online uploading of needful documents after seat allotment, withdrawal and willingness change etc. have been inherited from the previous years and thus, CCMN-2023 provides an enormously increased overall convenience for the candidates. Candidates are allowed to participate in the special rounds even if one has obtained a seat in one of the regular rounds. The prospective candidates are advised to carefully read the information brochure and various other documents given on the CCMN website.
