I have been provided Life Science of NIT Rourkela but in 12th Board I was not from Biology. What should I do?

Ayush Agarwal 2nd Aug, 2019

Hi,

It's OK if you did not had biology in your 12th class, if the college is providing you Life Sciences then you must be eligible for it. So if you tink that you are intersted in it and can pursue it easily then you can go for it, or you can always take a drop.

I wish you best of luck

Thank You

Sir I got iiit kottayam in csab special round1 what can I get in special round2

Ranjot Singh Student Expert 29th Jul, 2019

Dear student, as you have got the kottayam branch in the first round of counselling process, you may hardly move on to NIT andrapradesh and not more than that. It depends on the availability of seats after the first round counselling is over and even on the number of applicants and their choices.

Will i get NIFTEM in csab counseling. My general rank is 98700 and obc rank is 27000? Or would i get nit rourkela for food technology?

Souradeep Bhowmick Student Expert 26th Jul, 2019

Hello,

Yes you may be able to get NIFTEM in CSAB counselling but since it has only 180 seats and that too only 27% seats are available for OBC quota, it may be difficult. With a general rank of 98700 and OBC rank of 27000 you may not expect to get admission in any good college. But you may have chances for lower branches like food technology.

which is better? Mtech in design engineering at BITS Pilani Hyderabad campus or Industrial Ceramics in NIT Rourkela

Arun Murugan Student Expert 22nd Jul, 2019

I would say doing Mtech in bits hyd of design engineering is better .

Because nits Mtech students don't get good placements.

Morever ceramics is not good compared to design engineering so bits would better.

Placement point of view .

If you are interested in ceramics then go with it 

But generally bits hyd has good placements and scope for Mtech
