Is it a Better Option to Choose Newer NITs for B.Tech Admission?

The first thing that the NIT aspirants must note that choosing a newer NIT for B.Tech admission is not a wrong choice. However, these NITs are still emerging, and most of the newer NITs do not have permanent campuses also. Some of the NITs are functioning through the temporary campuses. The central government is trying its best to set up permanent campuses for newer NITs as early as possible.

The B.Tech degree offered by NITs (whether it's old or new NIT) holds value in the job market. NIT graduates are offered lucrative job offers by top companies. However, before choosing an NIT, it is advisable to check the campus, infrastructure facilities.

It is also advisable to get in touch with the old students or senior students of newer NITs before making admission choice. This will give you an insight into which NIT to choose.

There are many options other than NITs if you score a low rank in JEE Main. You can get admission in top engineering colleges or deemed universities despite the low rank in JEE Main exam. The below examples will help you to understand the different ways through which you can apply for admission in top private engineering colleges or deemed universities with low JEE Main rank.

Example 1: After clearing the JEE Main and if your rank is low, you can appear for engineering exams conducted at the state level. Since you had prepared for JEE Main, preparing for the state-level engineering entrance exam can’t be a tough task. If you are from West Bengal, you will have to appear for the WBJEE. If you score a good rank in UPSEE, you can get admission to any of the top private engineering colleges located in Uttar Pradesh.

What if I do not Score Well in State-Level Engineering Entrance Exam?

If you do not score well in the state-level engineering entrance exam and still you are aspiring to get admission to top engineering college, it is advisable to not wait for a long time and start applying for different top engineering colleges under the management quota. Note that the competition for management quota in top private engineering colleges is also high, and one must apply for admission as soon the results of the state-level entrance exam are out.

You can also apply for B.Tech admission in deemed universities with or without rank in the entrance exam. The fee structure for B.Tech admission through management quota shall be high than the state quota seat.

Example 2: If you scored a low rank in JEE Main exam, it is advisable to apply for the entrance exam conducted by various deemed universities. Some of the top deemed university B.Tech entrance exams are VITEEE,KIITEEE, V-SAT, KLEEE, SRMJEEE etc. After clearing any of these entrance exams, you will be called for the counselling process, and seat & branch allocation is done on the basis of score or rank secured in the entrance exam. One of the advantages of appearing for these entrance exams is that deemed universities offer a fee waiver or scholarship to top 500-1000 rank holders.

What if I do not Score Well in Deemed University Entrance Exams?

If you do not score well in the deemed university entrance exam, do not worry. You can either seek admission through the management quota of the respective deemed university or you can apply for admission in other private engineering colleges through the management quota. If you have a better rank or good score in the state-level engineering entrance exam, you can apply for state quota B.Tech admission.

Is there any Advantage if I have a Low Rank in JEE Main and 80+ percentage in board exams?
