how many marks I should get in jee mains to get seat in IIT Mumbai university?

Naveen Meena Student Expert 8th Dec, 2019

Dear aspirant, I think you have some confusion over the name. IIT MUMBAI and Mumbai University both are different.

For MUMBAI UNIVERSITY , admission for B.Tech course is on the basis of MH-CET exam.

For IIT MUMBAI , admission is on the basis of score obtained in JEE ADVANCED exam. You can't take admission in IIT MUMBAI on the basis of JEE MAINS. Also the score in JEE ADVANCED has to be among the top scorers as the cut off for IIT MUMBAI is highest among all the IITs.

All the best

Hope this helps

Hello there,

The fee for a course depend upon the college you are taking admission in.
Now a days IITs are charging around 90k per semester for any branch.Similarly top private engineering colleges like bits pilani charges about 1.6 lakh per semester. Other government funded institute have different charge.
Hope this helps.

For SJMSOM,Is sectional cutoff of cat score there for consideration, for a call, or they would call by the overall cutoff.I have asked this because some sources are saying that you would get a call if you clear the overall cutoff.

Pranav Mishra 3rd Dec, 2019

Hello Aspirant,

As far as I know along with clearing the overall cutoff you should also have to clear the sectional cutoff of every as well. Sectional cut off evey section is lower than the overall cutoff but it has to cleared if you want to get admission in SJMSOM, Since SJMSOM is the top college for management in Mumbai so it's has its high criteria set for getting admission.

But don't worry cutoff is based on the level of difficulty of the paper, So if you have work hard for the exam you won't be having any problems in clearing the cut off for different sections.

I hope the above information is beneficial for you

All the best.
