Preparing for an entrance exam like JEE Main, or for that matter MHT CET or KEAM, is no walk in the park. But even if one crosses this hurdle with relative comfort, there are more down the lane that are almost like a web. Here we are talking about the complex admission processes weaved across different states. Take for example, the B.Tech admission process for other state candidates in Himachal, where you get 15% reservation for all India candidates; admission is first based on JEE Main rank, followed by merit in HPCET. Now if you move to Tamil Nadu, there is not much of a quota for all India candidates, but a limited 50 seats offered by Anna University, with admission based on 10+2 scores. Now if you didn’t know this subtle difference, you might spend fruitless time seeking admission to an institute in Tamil Nadu, based on your JEE Main score (if you had one), when you might have been better off applying for admission in Himachal. To ensure that no such thing happens and you maximise your chances, we urge you read up on the topic – B.Tech admission for other state candidate. It will equip you with the correct and pertinent information, and make your life a lot easier!
In this article on B.Tech admissions for other state candidates, we bring what are the different admission opportunities that lie before a candidate seeking admission in another. Read on!
