    What is the minimum rank in JEE MAIN to get admission in NIT outside North East?


    Have a query about admission cut off for NIT? Searching for answers online? Check out this Ask Expert page and resolve your query.

    One of my nephew has got 162 marks in JEE MAIN 2017. His rank is 20200. He is from General category and his home state is Assam. Though he belongs to Assam, he doesn't want to join any NIT in North East and also doesn't want to join any IIIT. He wants to join some good NIT outside North East India. His preferences are Computer Science or Mechanical Engineering. Which NIT can he get with his rank? What will the minimum rank in JEE MAIN to get into good NIT?

    For a general category student to get admission in NIT colleges outside north east in computer science and mechanical branch the expected score is at least 200 marks in JEE MAIN. However it all depends on his college preference, if he is looking for some prestigious NIT where students are offered handsome package at the time of placement then I don't think he can make it to those colleges with this mark.
    He can get admission in other NITs across the country outside north east. Selection procedure also depends on the preferences of other students. So, if he fail to get his desired college in first few rounds of counselling then he must keep patience because counselling board offers the vacant seats to other students in next round of counselling. Therefore, he may get some good NIT college in next round of seat allocation as 20200 is a good rank to fetch him a good college if he can compromise with other branch like electrical and civil engineering.
    Keep hope, may he be lucky enough to get one.
