how many students are appeared in upsee mca entrance test ? And how many marks required to get admission in IET lucknow?

Vemireddy Rushitha Student Expert 7th Oct, 2019

Hello aspirant,

We cannot conclude how any people appeared for MCA but you can look for the cutoffs.

As you asked for the marks required to get admission in IET lucknow

To be eligible for the degree level engineering program, candidates should have passed 10+2 level examination with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics from any recognised board or university with a minimum aggregate of 45% marks .

Thank you !


I m in 12th. i have S.L arora 11th class ,Modern abc(chemistry) 11th ,12th pradeep (chem.+ physics Both) ,RD shrma 11th ,RS aggarwal 12th, M.T.G ( Physics and maths) AND Arihant UPSEE last year papers.... So qns is that Should i purchase any other book for competitive exam like Hcverma OPtondan?

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 6th Oct, 2019
Hello aspirant I am here for helping you.
If you want to go with competitive examination then here NCERT are sufficient books for having content.
But problem is that the entire content in NCERT written in the form of paragraph which sometime difficult to read so here your mentioned books can help you to have maximum knowledge in minimum time.
But it is not necessary that from these books you can crack competitive examination because main concern for the competitive examination is that from where you will get the questions which will be asked in the exam so HC Verma and op tandon these are some of the book from where you can have some competitive level questions.
If you will go with the coaching or you are pursuing then you should go with the coaching study material and after completion of the entire syllabus if you have time then you should go with these books for extra knowledge.
this was all about some high level competitive exams but if talking about UPSEE then you don't need to bother because NCERT and your above reference books are sufficient for having good marks in UPSEE exam.
I hope you got it.
Feel free to ask any query in comment section.
Best of luck.

Apoorva Student Expert 5th Oct, 2019

Hello dear student,

As you asked  don't worry you can easily fill the form of UPSEE . But you have to keep result status as awaiting. There is no problem in filling the form. but you have to make sure that you obtain 45% above marks if you belong from general category and if you belong from SC ST category then you should must have marks above 40%. The aggregate of physics mathematics chemistry or biology or biotechnology or vocational subjects are taken into consideration. For the time you can put your result status as awaited in the form. While I hope you have already cleared you intermediate.
