I got 75percent in jee mains January 2020 under BC category will i apply for jee advance?

AYAN MULLA 29th Feb, 2020

since it is very difficult to predict the exact rank but we do have a backup> we have a formula to calculate the expected rank that is (100 – Total percentile) x 869010/100.So according to formula your expected rank for present percentile for January session comes out to be 217252 . Now the expected rank might change depending on the no of candidates appearing the april session. For ex if 12 lakh candidate appear the april session then just replace 869010 by 12 lakhs. But if you score above 85 percentile then you have a very decent chance of qualifying jee mains.
Well since the cutoffs are yet to be decided let us analyse using previous year cutoff

Can English, Hindi, and PCM be taken for top 20 percentile criteria fulfilling in JEE Mains?

Manisha 29th Feb, 2020

Hello aspirant

No, you can not take two languages for top 20% criteria .  English is mandatory.

Your main  percentage will be decided by one language subject that is English and other  four subjects in which you get high scores.And remaining subjects become additional whose marks will not be added to your main percentages.

The subject you would score lowest will automatically be excluded.


Can I get admission in CS branch with 45000 rank in JEE Mains?

Rahul ke 29th Feb, 2020
Dear Aspirant, you can't get Computer Science (CS) in NIT with a rank of 45,000.
Low NIT's like NIT Srinagar and Nagaland also don't have that much lower cutoff.
For Example-you should have atleast Rank of around 20 to 25 thousand for getting Computer Science branch in NIT Srinagar.
For NIT Nagaland you should have at least rank of around 35 thousand for getting Computer Science, but for that also you have to wait for the last rounds.
But you can get a CS in some private colleges with this rank,but their Quality of Education and Labs of CS department are not that much good.
So my suggestion to you is to try for JEE MAINS April and make rank as much good rank as possible and after that search for the colleges.

Im in WB board class 12. I have English, Bengali PCM and Computer Science as extra subject. as per boards rules final marks are calculated of best 5 among these 6 subjects. And I am very less prepared in CS. But will score 85% in total in rest subjects.Which subjects will be taken for Jee 75% rule?

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 29th Feb, 2020

The six subjected that are taken into consideration as best five for calculation of 75% for JEE mains and advance are :

One Language Paper (English)
And any other subject different from above given

I hope this helps.
