I got 80 persentail in jee main I have in st category i get top 10 nit
Even with ST category, there's a remote chance you get into any NIT at 80 percentile. You may get NITs,IIITs through Home state Quota but it also varies depending upon the state in which you live.
You are qualified for JEE Advanced and hence you should try to score atleast 25% of the maximum marks to get a seat in IIT. (Qualifying cutoff is 17.5% and 5% subjectwise) That's all what I can say.
All the best!!!!
