How much minimum marks I will have to score in jee main 2020 (obc candidate) (other state) to get admission in NIT srinagar Or any Nit college?

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 22nd Nov, 2019
As you know that there is a percentile criteria in JEE mains conducted by national test agency so for having NIT admission you should be in the safer side because there is a 0.0001 factor variation in percentile, so always you should try to have more than or equal to 95 percentile which can make your chances to have admission in NIT but I cannot surely say in which round you will have admission and you also know that the percentile depends upon the number of candidates who got less and equal mark than you so it also variate the rank every year so I am providing you a link below where you can see previous year cut off list of JEE mains which can give you a probable idea of having admission in NIT.
Best of luck.

how much minimum marks to score in JEE examination to get in sastra University

apuroop sri durgesh 22nd Nov, 2019

Hi Varun!

Actually there is no such criteria as Sastra university prefers 75% intermediate score and 25% JEE Mains score, for your easy understanding, you should get an all India rank of 4000 in General category. Then you can have good chances to get a seat into Sastra university.

Hope this helps.

All the Best!
