While IIMA has dropped from the 40th position to 50th, IIMB now holds the 54th position instead of the 44th that it did last year.

Dear Student,

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. If you are still confused, you can check the JEE Main college predictor which will help you get an estimate that which college can you get with your JEE Main score.
