I got 5606 rank in uptu ,88.32 Percentile in jee And 92 %in boards will I get cse branch in good college?
Well brother, I can understand your situation. I know you have worked hard for JEE mains but I believe with 88.32%ile in CRL category, you won't be getting decent college which I can recommend you.
Though with home state quota, there might be an increased chance of your's getting a seat but with such a rank it is very hard to get.
So, I would suggest you to prefer state engineering colleges. Some state eng. colleges are way better than even mediocre ranked NIT.
Also, I would recommend you to do take part in JoSAA and go to through all the round even the spot round. May be, some good fortune can turn your destiny.
Or the better recommendation can be
To prefer Thapur. It is one of the older colleges in education industry with better Alumni than many of the NIT's.
I got 5606 rank in uptu . And 92 %in boards will I get cse branch in good college?
Congratulations on getting such a good rank. Yes, you have a fair chance of getting a good college. Unfortunately you will not be able to get a government college if you belong to general category but you are eligible to get admission in JSS Noida, which is the best private college affiliated to AKTU. You might get CSE here otherwise you are sure to get CSE in AKG, KIET and ABESEC. I hope this information was helpful!
I wish you all the very best!
How in placement in IT JOBS IN GNIOT
The college placement for IT students is decent, if not good. There have been mixed reviews regarding the placements. Some of the top companies in the IT industry such as Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys, HCL and Genpact come for hiring. However, the avg. salary package is between 2 lakhs to 6 lakhs per annum. Your salary package also depends on how you express and present yourself during the placements. If you are an outstanding student and someone who will add value to the company, you might be offered even a higher pay package than six lakhs per annum.
I hope this has answered your query and all the best!
