                                                                              It is quite difficult to get an NIT with 85 percentile in JEE Main as there are a huge competition and lakhs of aspirants in JEE Main score above 80 percentile. If you want to get a clear perception, you can convert your percentile to rank and compare it to last year cutoff.
