Could you please tell me when SASTRA university declares its merit list for b-tech admissions 2020?

I got 60% in mains and 84% in MPC in board exam can i get seat in sastra university in chemical engineering ?
Hello Rakesh ,
As per my knowledge , T here is no such criteria ( minimum JEE marks/12th board marks) for admission in to SASTRA university . SASTRA university has a separate procedure through stream 1 and stream 2 .
IN Stream 1 -
70 percent seats of every branch are filled through stream 1 based on 12th percentage ( 75 percent after normalisation ) + JEE mains score ( 25 percent )
For example :-
12 th percentage - 88 (CBSE) and JEE mains score is 80 .
Normalised percentage of board would be as follows
88 * 100/98.6 = 89.25
( Assuming percentage of topper is 98.6 )
Now 89.25 * 0.75 + 80 * 0.25 = 86.94
This is your final score . AIR (SASTRA) is prepared based on this final score . There is a chance AIR up to 4000 .
If someone is a topper of board exam and his JEE mains score is 40 then final score would be 85 and AIR (SASTRA) would be above 5000 . It proves that t here is no chance for JEE mains score below 40 in stream 1 .
IN Stream 2 -
Second criteria includes admission on the basis of boards marks only. But it has only 30% of seats , so for this criteria u should be having 95 or 95+ for securing your seat as in this criteria competition may be very tough.
(Note:- merit list of both criteria is prepared diffrently .)
Hope it helps.
All the best.
Which college is better SASTRA UNIVERSITY OR NIT ANDHRA PRADESH?
If you don't have budget of around 10 lakhs then go for SASTRA UNIVERSITY otherwise NIT andra Pradrsh is better, the tag of NIT will greatly help you and the hostel faculty of SASTRA according to my sources , but it mainly depends on your efforts in University not the University, if you do enough online courses as well as interships like campus ambassador and other in college activities ,nice academics record that would be enough for you to get excellent placement
