I got my CEED scorecard. what is the next step for admission?

Vagisha Aggarwal 15th Mar, 2020

Hello Aspirant

After you get your CEED scorecard, I think its best you start checking your college preferences based on your scores and shortlist them. The the most important step is to take care of the last day of application of the colleges.

Even if your CEED score is less than you dream college, I would still recommend you apply for it because you never know about the cut-offs for that year.
