I got 86.6 percentile in jee mains 2020 Jan can I expect seat in gfti nayaraipur

Sudarshan kumar 28th Jan, 2020

Hi Prem,

Whether you get seat in NIT Raipur depends upon from which category you belong if you belongs from ST or Sc then you will surely get seat but if you belong from General or Obc category then you may not get seat in NIT raipur because in 86.6 percentile your rank would be around 120000 and the last year cutoff for General category is 42,389 for all india category and for home state the cutoff was 91034 for BIOtech branch which is least preferable branch.

The link for cutoffs of NIT Raipur is:-


Hope this will help,please feel free to ask if you have any further queries.
