You shouldn't be negative. Be confident. You still have time for the April session. Trigger your weak and strong points and work on them accordingly. Give mock tests and revise well. You'll surely end up in a decent college.
If not, then SP Jain University is also a good option. Bachelor of Data Science is a trending course. It presents a high possibility for employment. If you're financially sound then it wont be much of a problem. The study course includes the locations of Mumbai and Sydney. The placements offered is very impressive. The demand for data science is not going to fade in the near future. So, BDS is a good alternative.
