I scored 94.55 percentile in jee 2020.I am EWS-GENERAL i will gate NIT college or not.

Naufal Mohamed 21st Jan, 2020
With your percentage you will definetly get into an NIT. But which probably a not so good NIT into a non core subject. Even if you luckily get into a top NIT it will again be for a non core course.
You may look at the cutoffs for previous year NITs here

best IIT and NIT for PhD in which I got admission easily. my gate score is 626 (Mechanical)

Naufal Mohamed 21st Jan, 2020
When it comes to NIT's give a try at NIT Calicut, NIT roukela, SVNIT you should easily get into that. for IITs i dont think you have a good chance with the top IITs. You may also try universities other than NITs and IITs.

which PSUs hire candidates through gate examination? how many marks i should bring in mechanical engineering to get PSU?

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 20th Jan, 2020

hi,

some of the psus which hires mechanical engineer is ongc, iocl, bhel, mdl, npcil, hpcl etc. you may also apply in research institute like  barc, drdo etc.

year to year number of vacancies  varies and cutoff score depends on the question difficulty level, number of participants etc.

if you have 70+ marks in total of 100 in gate exam, you have decent chances to get calls from psus.
