cut off for ECE and CSE at jadavpur University for outside state student by wbjee

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 8th Dec, 2019
Hello,


If you want to get admission in Jadhavpur University you will have to appear in WBJEE. JU treats candidate of West Bengal and other states equally when it comes to the entrance exam and admission.
JU is one of the best colleges for persuing engineering so there is tough competition for getting into the colleges.CSE is the most popular branch there and if you want that branch then you will have to get a rank inside 100 ranks.And for ECE you will have to get under 200 ranks.

You can check cutoff of past years from the link below.
