Plus One Application 2024 for Higher Secondary Admissions-How to check trial allotment

hscap 2024 plus one admissions

The trial allotment result of Kerala Plus One Single Window Admission will be published on 29 May 2024 at 10 am.

How to check your trial allotment status ?

Applicants can check the trial allotment result by entering the admission gateway of the Department of Public Education and logging in through Candidate Login-SWS and through the Trial Results link in the candidate login.

Admission with trial allotment rank

The trial allotment list is only a possible list of the first allotment to be published on June 5, 2024. Therefore, admission to any school cannot be obtained with the allotment letter received as per the trial result. You have to wait for the first allotment list to get admission.

What is the significance of trial allotment rankings ?

This trial allotment is the last chance to correct any errors in your application details. Also at this stage the previously given options can be rearranged or new ones can be added if needed.

Ensure your WGPA is correct

Trial allotment list must be checked by all applicants. Ensure that application information and WGPA are correct. You can get the method of calculating WGPA from the prospectus.

Information that can be edited during trial allotment

Modifications to the application details including options can still be made in your application regarding caste reservation, bonus point information, panchayat and taluk information of residence (based on the applicant’s permanent address) and other extracurricular activities (art fairs, clubs, etc.) considered for tie-break. Make sure that the information entered is correct. Entry will be denied if such information is entered incorrectly. So make effective use of this last chance to make corrections. None of the information used to create the candidate login can be edited or modified.

Check your caste and category

In some applications, there are some inconsistencies in the information such as caste, category etc. For example, some applicants whose caste is Ezhava are entered as Hindu OBC instead of ETB as category. If such mistakes are not corrected, admission will not be granted even if the allotment is received. All the categories in the Eligibility Certificate/ Mark List cannot be copied into the application. For example, Ezhava, Muslim, Other Backward Hindu Communities, Backward Christian, Latin Catholic, Dhivara, Vishwakarma, Kusavan, Kudumbi are generally mentioned as OBC in the eligibility certificate. But each of these are separate categories in the admission process. To understand the categories of each caste, see Appendix 2 of the prospectus.

Is SSLC revaluation results considered in Trial allotment ?

SSLC re-valuation results published on 27th May have not been considered in the trial allotment as the trial allotment activities started on 25th May 2024 in the evening. Applications whose grade has been changed through SSLC re-evaluation will include the changed grade in the first allotment. Applicants belonging to other schemes like SSLC (HI), THSLC etc. should include the changed grade at the time of correction after publication of trial allotment.

My rank is very low. Will I get admission to the particular school?

 Students who are not able to get through the trial allotment or first allotment while checking may have some concern about the rank number. For example, the student may know that the applied school has only 50/60 seats, but when checking the rank is above 300 or 400, the student may feel that he will never get admission in this school. But there is no basis for this apprehension as the rank here is calculated for all applicants in the district where the subject combination in the said school has been given as any option. All these applicants may not be in the allotment list of the same school. Applicants may get allotment in their other options which are better according to their merit. So lower rankers may also get allotment.

Wrong information in application

Do not claim anything affecting the allotment, including the information used for bonus points, information used for tie-break, applicant’s category etc. without the certificates required in the prospectus. If the certificates are not produced, the allotments received will be cancelled and the student will lose the opportunity of admission.

See Trial allotment-detailed instructions to candidates

Last date for editing the details.

The deadline for checking the trial is May 31, 2024. Candidates can check the trial allotment list up to 5 PM. If any corrections are required, the necessary corrections/inclusions should be made through the Edit Application link in the candidate login and final confirmation should be made by May 31, 2024 at 5 PM.
