Freeze: Once a seat is allocated to a candidate, the applicants can choose the freeze option if he/she is satisfied with the seat allotted and would be willing to take admission.

Float: Taking floating choice means that the applicants select the seat allotted but would like to try for more preference in any institute, in subsequent rounds.

Slide: This choice means that the applicants hold the seat but would try for better academic program preference, in the same institute, in next round of counselling.
