Rehan Alam Student Expert 22nd Feb, 2020

Dear aspirant,

JEE  is an exam for admission into IIT NIT and other government funded Institute for engineering in India. Almost all of the Government colleges in India get admission through JEE exam but exam itself conducted in two phases number one is mains and number 2 is advanced.

You have to score a minimum marks more than your cut off to be eligible for JEE advanced. This is score you have to get in JEE main exam. You can get admission into aeronautical engineering from any of the exam however if you specifically want admission in IIT then you have to clear main cutoff and also get a good rank in JEE advanced exam.

Manisha Gupta Expert 22nd Feb, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

The exact prediction would be difficult about your admission possibilities. But as per the previous year cutoff, the chances are less to get a seat in NITs, IIITs & GFTIs, You can try for state level counseling.

To know your admission possibilities in state level counseling, you can use JEE Main college predictor tool.

Good Luck!
