JoSAA will conduct a centralized counselling for JEE Main qualified candidates. To participate, the candidates will have to register and choose their preferred courses and colleges from the available list. Allotment will be done as per their merit in JEE Main, preferences and availability of seats. Total seven rounds of counselling will be held.
According to rough estimation your general rank will be in range of 185k, if not more than 9 lakh students appear in april session else it will be much worse.
Last year the closing rank for your category in JMI was 76657 for civil engineering. So, it seema you have very low chances for getting it. So, reappear in april and get better score.
All the best
You have got 93.96 percentile in JEE main that means your rank should be around 52488. You can also calculate your rank as
You may get MECHANICAL engineering in ITNU. ITNU also takes admission on the basis of GUJCET so you can appear and perform better for better branch. Hope it helps
A percentile is the no.of Candidates who scored better than you in the exam. Going by that, to calculate your JEE percentille, we should use the formula 100 - your total percentile score. Now 869010 Candidates appeared for Jan exam. Going by that, your rank formula is (100 - your total score) X 869010 /100. Your rank can be predicted by using the formula, (100-your total percentile)*869010/100. Let's say the number of candidates for April exam increased to 12,00,000 then your final rank shall be (100 - your total score) X 12,00,000/100
In short, it is not based on your Category. This is overall rank.
According to your percentile your probable rank is 1,53,380. Now you can see previous years cutoff
Cutoff for the previous years can be seen through the link
i hope this helps .
Since you are eligible for pwd seat, you can take admission on the basis of pwd rank. Your rank will depend on the performance of other pwd student. So, please wait till the pwd rank is declared by the NTA and then analyse last years trend.
You can also use college predictor for rough estimation.
Hope it helps
