amity vs sharda vs jss noida vs gcet which would be best option for btech????
These colleges are divided into two groups, in first one Sharda and Amity are there which is also a university and in second group JSS and GCET, they are affiliated by AKTU and they are the top private colleges of AKTU.
In Amity and Sharda you can easily get your preference seat without any difficulty but for GCET and JSS you need to participate in the UPCET conducted by AKTU.
Mostly admissions are done in Amity and Sharda is on the management quota seats but in JSS and GCET only 15% are reserved for management quota students.
So here you need to understand that in Amity and Noida you will find mostly local Jaat and Gurjars studenst and strength is around 500 student in CSE related course while In JSS and GCEt only selected students are there coming from different regions of UP and NCR and only 60 or 120 students is allowed in these colleges.
Infrastructure of Amity and Sharda is somewhere good compare than JSS and GCET but faculty is more good in JSS and GCET.
In terms of placement every college stand somewhere at the some position as they provide many opportunity to the students still because of less no of students and less competition you will get more chance to prove yourself in JSS and GCET.
The average package of JSS is 6 LPA and the highest is around 40 LPA and coming to the GCET the average package is around 6 LPA.
If you want the sequence then here it is:
Hope you find it useful.
Good Luck :)
i got less marks fot gcet 2021. but i still want to get into engineering, what can i do?
It's really unfortunate and you have my sympathies but there are a lot of more entrance exams you can appear for to get into engineering. JEE Mains is one of them. You must have heard about it. SRMJEEE, VITEEE,COMEDK, MHT-CET are some othy entrance exams you should target if you want to get into engineering. I am providing you a link which consists of a list of all the Engineering entrance exams in India.
I hope this helps.
All the Best
