You may be allotted a rank among the 1.5 lakhs candidates qualified for the JEE advanced examination. As the ranking would be worked out based on the percentile system of the qualifying examination and the marks obtained in the JEE mains examination, your expected rank can be checked from various websites like Engineering 360 etc and it appears your rank may be around 35000 under general category. Since you belong to OBC, you can try your luck in IIITs. Chances of getting a seat in other NITs in the branches like Metallurgical engineering or Biotech Engineering etc. Just check out the possibilities and chalk out your strategies.

I suggest you to focus first on the Advanced Examination and you are not lost even your score is lesser in Mains. If you fare well in the Advanced examination, you can have a berth in IITs. All the best.

No, qualifying in JEE Mains does not guarantee a seat in NIT (National Institute of Technology). It depends on what rank or how many marks you achieved in JEE Mains. Many students attempt JEE Mains and only some of them qualify. NIT is one of the top institutes which give seats to students based on JEE Mains. So, there will be a particular mark or rank and you should cross that barrier to get a seat in NIT. Without crossing it, you can get a seat in less popular branches but not in popular branches like Computer Science and Engineering etc,. In case you got less marks in JEE Mains, try hard for JEE Advanced so that you can get a seat in the popular institute of India i.e. IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) if you qualify.

Hope this helps.
