Admission into Punjab Engineering College(PEC) is through JEE Mains score.
Since you did not mention any category, I will assume general category nor did you mention any branch so I will give you an average rank to get an admission into PEC, which is 25,500 approx. as per 2019 stats.
The highest closing rank for AIQ is 43,708 in 2019 and 33906 in 2018 and 49,486 in 2020.
can bio student can give jee main exam while uptu is not connecting exam and uptu exam will conduct through jee main
Your question is unclear but I will try to answer as much as I can.
So, a bio student can give JEE Mains only when the student has Maths as an additional subject and appears in its board examination and secures good marks (such that total percentage of PCM is higher than or equal to 75%(GEN) or 65%(SC/ST))
Yes UPTU is cancelled now the colleges that previously took admission through UPTU, will be considering JEE Mains score now.
