The colleges which are branded would surely be having much competition in terms of grabbing seats and therefore everyone cannot afford to get. The PSG College of Technology at Coimbatore is also good with four A+ ratings and with sixty seats each in all main branches. Coming to the author's recommendation of Coimbatore Institute of Technology, it has only AAAA ratings and the seats to courses are also low. For example, the CH course has only 40 seats and the aspirants are more. Again, the Sri Krishna College of Engineering and Technology at Coimbatore was rated with AAA+ only and therefore there cannot be many takers. The seat allotment for CE courses in this college is merely 60 which is very less considering the number of aspirants. And the seats for MC is just 120 as against 180 for other courses.
