I secured 98.21 percentile in jee mains paper 2 can I get admission in jamia milia islamia

Swati Umang 21st Feb, 2020

Hello! Hope you are doing good

The information that I could gather about Jamia was relared to marks. For non-Muslims, the marks required is around 200 to be in the safe zone. For Muslims, its around 150.

Your percentile is good to have chances to get into JMI. But I would suggest to rake the second chance as well. You still have time to revise and come back with maybe a better percentile.

All the best


l have got 82.48 percentile in jee main paper 2,can I take addmission in SPA delhi?

Devraj choudhary Student Expert 20th Feb, 2020


Frankly speaking getting SPA delhi after 1000 rank in general category is impossible.  Let me calculate your rank first.

It can be done on the basis of formula

(100- percentile)*number of students appeared/100

That is in range 19800-26800.

I think now, you got the thing. So, focus on preparation once more and score well.

All the best

66 percentile in JEE Mains exam is the low percentile for admission in IIT and NITs. But you are free for admission in any of the private college. Every college has its own fundamentals, some take students on the basis of JEE Mains , some on entrance exam, some on 12 percentage, some direct admissions. U can take admissions in any of the private colleges in any of the city or area. U can give any entrance exam for any of the private college or directly talk to college authorities.
