Questions related to IIT KGP
I have been allotted Instrumentation in IITKGP in 1st round of counselling and I am the branch opener as per Jossa OR CR. My next higher choice is EE in the same Institute. May l get it in the subsequent rounds?
First of all your must mention your jee advanced rank along with your category.
As you haven't mentioned it so, I am assuming that you belong from general category.
Now, first of all congratulations that you got instrumentation engineering in IIT KGP and your rank is the opening rank of this branch.
Now as your rank was the opening rank, ans you got instrumentation engineering in 1st round then your general rank must be around 1500.
Now as your general rank is 1500 ( assumed ), then for getting electrical engineering in the same college you have to use slide option. Now as per seeing the last year cutoff trends - the cutoff of electrical engineering branch is lower than 1500 general rank. So, there is no sure saying that you will get ee or not, because for getting sure seat in ee your rank must be under 1100. You may or may not get seat in ee in further rounds.
And also the actual results will be shown in josaa further rounds counseling.
So, Wait for next rounds.

I have got the allotment letter in iit kgp what should i do next
Congratulations on your allotment at IIT KGP. If you have freezed the seat and got the seat allotment letter after seat acceptance fee payment on the Josaa Portal, wait for the Document Verification Date. I believe this year the process is Online and you will be given a particular slot.
Post Document Verification and all the JOSAA rounds you will receive an email from IIT KGP/ERP IIT KGP for formal institute registration and identity verification on the official SAP/ERP Portal and you have to act accordingly. The Email will also give you instructions regarding Institute fee payment and Hall Allotment. You will finally get your Institute Roll Number in the ERP Profile. Till then Chill and Relax, perhaps check the IIT KGP ERP Portal as I believe a notification PDF might be released regarding New UG Admissions and Rules/Regulations.
I believe your classes and induction process might start online, however as planned in the Institute Calendar of IIT KGP, the New admits and their parents might be allowed to visit the campus and complete few formalities in December, subject to Covid Conditions and Transportation facilities.
All the best.

I got IIT Kharagpur in 2 mock rounds can i get i get it in real round
Yeah since you have got IIT KGP in Mock Round 2 there are high chances of you getting the same branch and institute in Josaa Round 1. There are hardly any new registrations post Round 2 and most students dont change the order of their preferences.
All the best for Josaa Round 1 Results.
which is good minning in iit kgp or eee in nit calicut,please say me
Mining Engineering at IIT KGP is a really very risky decision according to me. You should not expect any placement prospects in Core as very few companies like Vedanta, Tata Steel , ExxonMobil and Coal India, recruit Mining engineers from KGP, that too in limited numbers. Of course in non core sectors like Analytics, Machine Learning and Consultancy, IIT KGP Provides you infinite opportunities.
Besides this you can also change your branch after first year, though you must not rely on it.You have options to pursue a Minor or Micro Specialization in another Department besides Majoring in Mining Engineering.In case you develop interest in Entrepreneurship or Finance in first year, you have an opportunity to pursue M.Tech in Financial Engineering and Engineering Entrepreneurship, which provides with excellent opportunities in training and placement.
In fact many students from Mining Engineering also go to Grad Schools in Australia and US post Bachelors and many also pursue MBA from IIMs after B.tech. Curriculum of Mining is such that it gives a lot of time to the student to pursue his interests, prepare for competitive exams as well as learn new technologies.
Overall if you come to IIT KGP, it is your responsibility to cultivate your interest and nurture them to supremity. If you are ready and confident to dedicate your efforts and ace campus life, you deserve a place in KGP and must choose that.
If you are not too confident, I believe NIT Calicut EEE provides better Core and Circuital Placement prospects in Electricial Engineering, and you must go there.

Basically both IIT are really good but If compare the both branch metallurgy and mechanical engineering than the scope of mechanical engineering is better in present or future also so I think mechanical engineering will be good in IIT BHU .
You can use visit and compare your college.
