As per my view the best option available for you will be comedk because your rank is decent for Bangalore colleges and you have chances to get non core branches at decent colleges.

You have chances to get colleges like BIT Bangalore, CMR institute of technology. However some conditions are considered while deciding the cut offs like number of candidates appearing in the examination, number of vacant seats in college, previous years cut offs and difficulty level of the paper.

If you want to check out the colleges you can get through comedk ,you can take the help of the college predictor link given below -

Dear Student,

The CUSAT exam is challenging. But if you study the course well, getting good marks is not difficult. There are additional math questions on the test. Typically simple questions are asked.

The ICAR exam is a simpler, more fundamental form of test. Even with only a passing familiarity with the subject, you may select the right response by using your cunning. However, it is a lengthy exam with high standards.
Therefore, if you did well in your exams, you will secure a good rank in ICAR AIEEA too.
Good luck.

Hello aspirant.

If you have not given for the first allotment there's no need to worry, you can give it in the second allotment when the dates have been announced for mhtcet.
Hope this helps.
