IISER Result – Dates, Channel-wise Seat Allotment & Counselling Details

Indian Institute of Science, Education & Research grants the BS-MS dual degree admission via three different channels – State Central Board (SCB), Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojna (KVPY) Scholarship and JEE-Advanced. Unlike most of the competitive exams and admission processes, IISER does not release the result or the merit list. IISER directly shortlists candidates for seat allotment and counselling without releasing their marks or ranks. Hence, the release of seat allotment lists is itself considered and termed as IISER result. 

The first round of seat allotment list for KVPY channel is slated to be released on August 17, 2020. The IISER result 2020 (seat allotment lists) will be released in multiple rounds for each channel of admission, depending upon the seats left in IISER campuses after each round. Candidates can visit the official admission portal, i.e. iiseradmission.in to check their IISER result (seat allotment lists).
