what should I choose BS mathematics and computing in IIT Kanpur or B tech mathematics and computing in IIT Hyderabad ?

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 9th Oct, 2019

Maths and Computing is different in different IITs.
IIT Kanpur Maths and Computing is different from the others because it has 80% Maths only, and very less CS.
IIT Hyderabad, has a lot of CSE as compared to Maths in their curriculum. They have the best syllabus to go for.
So, you should choose one according to your interest and inclination towards the curriculum and syllabus.

I hope this helps.

what may be least marks in total and section wise in uceed to enter iit bombay and iit hyderabad?please answer anyone.

Priyanshu roy 22nd Aug, 2019

Hello Padala,

Getting into iit in any stream is a thought job as it has high competition.For UCEED getting any iit you should have to score around 180+ . Because availability of seat is very low & for getting iit ,you have to comes under definitely very low rank means under 60. If you belong to general category then must haverank between 40 to 50 hardly.for iit you need to have at least a rank less than 200.If being a general category student.

Hope it will helo
