Saurabh Kumar: Give all mock tests as final exam & final exam as mock test, Do not think too much about the results, Avoid talking to your peers & friends, Eat a lot of antioxidants & be sure that you will do well. Don’t refer multiple books & study topics which you have never read by doing this you can avoid fear & nervousness.

Careers360: Any message for students?

Saurabh Kumar: This is not the time to learn anything new but to consolidate what one has already learnt. Focus on revision of important formula steps, assumptions, should be on top of the mind of the aspirant. It becomes essential that the student, basis his own analysis and experience, develops a mindset and confidence of deciding which subject to start with in order to get maximum right answers. They should eat healthy and practise meditation to manage stress and maintain calmness.

I got 99.4 percentile in JEE Main Jan. Can I get IT branch at NIT Allahabad ?

Rishi Garg 28th Jan, 2020

You can calculate your rank in JEE Main Paper 1 using the formula:

Rank = (100-percentile)*(No. of students appeared for the examination)/100

As the no. of students appeared for Paper 1 (Jan) are around 869000, your rank will be around 5000. However as the no. of students in April changes, your rank will change according to that.

With this rank, there are good chances of getting IT Branch at NIT Allahabad. You can check the last years' cutoffs for this Institutes using the link given:

However, to get the list of all Institutes which you may get with this rank, kindly use the college predictor through the link provided below:

i scored 86 percentile in jee main 2020(7 jan ,2 shift) can u tell that can i get any govt engineering college in india me from general cat?

Raj Aryan Sharma 28th Jan, 2020

Hi Ayushi.

The official cutoff of JEE Mains will be released long with the final results after the April Mains. The NTA will announce category wise cutoffs then. But you can still check your estimated rank using the formula (100-your total percentile)*869010/100. So with this percentile, you estimated All India rank is around 1,21,000. Now, if the number of candidates giving the exam in April increase, you rank will go higher up.

Well, yes with that percentile, you might be able to get some GFTIs like (Mentioning refering to Other State quota) -

  • Agricultural Engineering in Assam University, Silchar .
  • You can get other GFTIs given they are in your Home State.

You can refer to the following link -
