sir I qualified jee mains but i got less rank In emacet then I can join top 10 engineering colleges

Bhaskar Nakkina Student Expert 12th Nov, 2019

Hii,

EAMCET and JEE Mains are both different exams. EAMCET  is a state level Entrance Test to get admission in local Engineering Colleges  and JEE is a National level Entrance Test to get admission in Engineering Colleges all over India. So If you are not able to make a good Score in EAMCET you won't get better College in state level. If you have good JEE percentile then apply for Colleges based on that Score.

Siddhi Shenoy 12th Nov, 2019

Hi Atithya,

JEE is one of the most difficult entrance examination in not only India, but in the world. However, it can be cracked. For doing so, you need to make a rigid but realistic timetable and strictly adhere to it. You need to be able to focus on what's important and block out everything else. You have to be able to study with concentration and dedication for hours on end.
