  • No. You won't get admission in computer science with that rank in NITs at least. You should opt for a private college you may get admission in them.

    Most of the UGC recognized and deemed universities and recognized colleges require minimum 65% aggregate marks ( with minimum 60% marks in PCM) in higher secondary or equivalent from a recognized school/board to be eligible to apply for admission. ST/SC/ and OBC get a relaxation of 5% marks for admission in almost all colleges and universities.

    There are also colleges which take admission if you have secured 40% or above aggregate marks, but then again there shall always be a question mark left on the reputation and the quality of education they impart.

    It depends solely on your interest that if you want to pursue BSc or engineering.

  • With the rank you got it is very difficult to get a seat in a good engineering college. You have to look for a private college. For that, you have to write your state Entrance test and based on the rank you obtain you have to choose the college. Otherwise, you have to pay huge amounts as donations and then get admitted to the colleges. This depends on all your financial position.

    You can think of doing B.Sc in a good college and then M.Sc or MCA. Again it depends on the hard work you put in and the marks you are obtaining.

    B. Tech Computers will be the best option. But the question is getting a seat in a good college.

    always confident

  • We are in a tough competitive environment today and good percentage is required in JEE to get the admission in engineering colleges. I am afraid you are well below the historical cut off. But there is nothing to dishearten in this and please note that there are many career options after class 12 and one has to focus in identification of that career area.

    You are a science student but your scoring is mediocre. We have to do introspection for this. Is science and engineering your area of interest or not? We have to find the answer of this crucial question. The reason is very simple that if you have interest in commerce or humanities or computer area or some business then there is no point in sticking to science and engineering. It is a fact that one can get success in life in those things where one has interest and passion. For example a person having interest in music, arts and drama will not be feeling happy in scientific subjects.

    Let us explore the various areas which are possible as a career option at this juncture. If you have interest in science and technology then one simple solution is go for B.Sc. and M.Sc. and even PhD in the core areas and then try for lecturer job in universities and colleges.

    In case PhD is to your cup of tea then after M.Sc. one has to qualify NET (National Eligibility Test) before applying for lectureship.

    Another option is change your stream to humanities and after graduation go for various competitive exams. There are many exams in banking, railway and administrative arenas and one has to prepare for them accordingly. There are some common factors in these exams from the point of view of the test papers like general english, aptitude test, reasoning etc. So preparing them thoroughly will help you in many similar exams.

    After graduation there is an option of going for B.Ed. after which one can apply for teaching line in schools.

    Nowadays many youngsters are joining hands for some business using the online applications and digital strategies and doing well. If you have interest in self employment you can join such entrepreneurs and contribute your part.

    So, there are a number of career lines but the most important thing is which is your favourite and in which by working hard you can score significantly. There is nothing like easy or hard in this endeavour. Everything boils down to scoring and merit for making a fabulous career.

    Knowledge is power.

  • With the ranking as indicated by you in JEE mains, it is hardly to get a seat in any coveted Engineering - colleges such as NIT's or Government funded Engineering colleges. However, don't loose your confidence, there are other possibilities as well and these are to be explored.
    You need to consider the following points fascilitating in your admission - process.
    1) You have not indicated your status of domicile. This is an important consideration in view of possibility of your admission in the Engineering colleges run by state - government where in you will be considered for admission with lesser marks. Remain in contact with the counselling agency. Never be desperate with the process, the counselling takes several rounds and your chances are pretty fair.
    2) look out NIT colleges of Manipur, Srinagar where your chance of admission is pretty high because of less choice of students for these colleges.
    3) You may try some private Engineering - colleges such as Thaper - engineering College, Ludhiana, SRM University, Manipal University with less donations bu the quality of education is excellent. With your admission in Computer - science, you would get campus - placement in Infosys, Tech - Mahindra, Accenture, TCS etc with the efforts of the placement officer of the college and hence you should not mind the donation asked by the Management of these colleges.
    4) There are some Engineering colleges offering you admission on the basis of your class twelve marks but you need to exercise your prudence in the selection of such colleges. Even after getting a degree from such colleges, there would be remote possibility of any job making you frustrated at later stage.
    5) Take one more chance for appearing in the examination in the next year consisting of two sessions Jan and April and show your best performance in either of the two or both so as to get place in one of the best IIT's with your preferred stream.
