my jee main parsantail 50.79 and my cast is ganeral so I will gate admition in nirma University and I home sate is also Gujarat

Subhodeep Biswas 28th Jan, 2020
Hey there hope you're doing well.
Dear aspirant, the Nirma  Universty like other states universities conducted it's own admission entrance test for UG level b.tech programs. It accepts scores of GUJCET and also the JEE MAIN score card. The eligibility for admission in Nirma University are a student
1.must have passed 10+2 or equivalent with minimum.45% marks in gen. Cat.
2.they must have taken PCM as their subjects.
3.they must have appeared in either GUJCET or JEE MAIN.
4.50%seats are filled by GUJCET appearing students ,35%by JEE MAIN qualifiers and 15%by NRI students.
Students need to fill the application form and take part in counselling process . The university releases it's cutoff baesd on both GUJCET as well as JEE MAIN ranks.
According to your percentile score your expected rank is about 4,27,639.
The cutoff ranks varies for JEE MAIN candidates but it almost closes around 150k so you have less chances of getting a seat there.
I'll suggest you to give your April attempt and score good percentile so that you can grab your dream college.
Thank you hope this helps you!
