will I get ECE at NSS college of engineering if I have 276/300 marks in class 12 cbse and 240/960 marks in Keam?

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 23rd Feb, 2020
Hello .
with 279/300 marks in your intermediate you are eligible through their 10+2 cutoff but KEAM score  plays also an important role , as you didn't mention your rank so it will be quite difficult to predict your chances but still with your mention score your rank will go high but in NSS college for electronics and communication branch your rank should be under 8.5 k so you have degraded chances of admission for more detail about previous year cutoff you can refer below link::
Best of luck.
