_Abhishek_Vatsya Student Expert 10th Dec, 2019
It is really tough to make prediction about minimum score in any specific category that can fetch you seat in top IITs as in last two years cuttoff has changed drastically.This year cuttoff was changed dramatically as paper was tough.JEE ADVANCE question setter keep changing level of questions each year,so it's really tough to make any prediction before examination.Despite all this,you can target 130+ for having seat in IITs with SC category that's what previous year trends says..
I hope this helps..

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 9th Dec, 2019

If you want to do then unfortunately you cant because jee advance is the inky way.But if you want to do other courses in IITs like B.Sc, Designing, Management etc then exams like IIT JAM, CAT, UCEED (Undergraduate Common Entrance Examination for Design), CEED(Common Entrance Exam for Design) , HSEE (Humanities and Social Sciences Entrance Exam) can help you to get in IITs.

I hope this helps.
