which goverment engineering college i get for cse through jee mains if my pcm aggregate is 55 percent and how is the placement of that college and average package for cse

Rehan Alam Student Expert 23rd Oct, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

No good college will give you admission in their CSE branch as the minimum requirement of all the good colleges is at least 60% in their +2. Moreover, all the good colleges needs a minimum of 75% in the +2 for their engineering courses including IITs and NITs.

If you are going to take admission in any normal below average private college then you might not get a package above 2 lakh per annum. CSE is a top trade only if done from some top college, otherwise you'll struggle for job.

Hope this helps. Thank you.

how can i score 150+ marks in jee mains april if i start from today.and please strategy which chapter is important and not.

Anupam Kumar Student Expert 23rd Oct, 2019
Hey there

Getting 150+ is a little tough you start preparing from now honestly. See if you have atleast prepared good for boards and know basic PCM then you can get 150+ which requires hard work. First you need to memorize the whole NCERT of chemistry thoroughly. If you had done coachings then revise the notes properly and solve as many questions as you can from chemistry make it your strong subject because it's scoring and can give you 60+ easily if you'll be honest with the subject. Then maths is also scoring for that solve rd Sharma, coaching notes and materials and advance previous year questions. Same for physics. In physics 12th portion is important as it will come in boards also. Rotation is important. But Careers360 has launched a wonderful platform which you can use to get 150+ in April exam if you follow the platform whole heartedly.

Aman Raj Student Expert 22nd Oct, 2019

Hello Subrata

It depends from where you are. If you are residing in Delhi then you can get COE with a rank of *2700-3000 but if you are from Outside Delhi region then you have to get a rank Under 1500 to get a seat.

But you can get Biotechnology with 38k rank (Delhi region).

*These are last year figures.
