According to rough estimation your general rank will be in range of 185k, if not more than 9 lakh students appear in april session else it will be much worse.
Last year the closing rank for your category in JMI was 76657 for civil engineering. So, it seema you have very low chances for getting it. So, reappear in april and get better score.

You may get MECHANICAL engineering in ITNU. ITNU also takes admission on the basis of GUJCET so you can appear and perform better for better branch. Hope it helps
A percentile is the no.of Candidates who scored better than you in the exam. Going by that, to calculate your JEE percentille, we should use the formula 100 - your total percentile score. Now 869010 Candidates appeared for Jan exam. Going by that, your rank formula is (100 - your total score) X 869010 /100. Your rank can be predicted by using the formula, (100-your total percentile)*869010/100. Let's say the number of candidates for April exam increased to 12,00,000 then your final rank shall be (100 - your total score) X 12,00,000/100
In short, it is not based on your Category. This is overall rank.
According to your percentile your probable rank is 1,53,380. Now you can see previous years cutoff
