Singampalli sai rahul Student Expert 26th Jan, 2020
Hello aspirant,

You can calculate your rank using the below formula-
100 - your total percentile score is the percentage  of people ahead of you. 869010 are the number of candidates appeared for Jan exam. So rank formula is (100 - your total score) X 869010 /100.

Based on your percentile score your rank will around 2 lac. So, you don't have a chance to gdt a seat in NIT's. Inorder, to get a seat in NIT CS Branch you should get atleast 98.5% percentage.

Is that necessary to write jee advanced.,after qualifying JEE mains ?

Subhodeep Biswas 26th Jan, 2020
Hey there hope you're doing well.
No, it's not at all necessary to appear for the JEE ADVANCED examination. You can appear in the JEE ADVANCED test only if your willing to take admission for B.TECH courses at the IIT's. Else you need not to appear for it . Yes clearing JEE MAIN is the eligibility criteria for appearing in JEE ADVANCED. But even after that it's your choice to sit in the test. Also both the exams have very different levels of strategies and preparation. So decide first and then go for it.
Thank you hope this helps you!
