PhD interview. I planned for only this course. Because I always wanted to learn more and in details. Research is one of the way to know things minutely.
GATE, AIR 556, Percentile 99.6, I opted majorly because of two reasons. The computer science department was renowned for its faculty. The heavenly beautiful campus offers ultimately serene and peaceful atmosphere for studies.
i gave GATE (graduate aptitude test in engineering) i got 2000 rank. Regarding admission process-1st online counselling then one offline counselling no interview.
JEE, AIR 4742 Chose branch, not college. For my rank, Design seemed to be a perfectly fitting branch for me, hence I chose to go for it over BITS CSE.
We wrote UCEED for b.des program in IIT. This has UG course in design for a longer time than IDC Bombay too. And being in such a geographic location is ideal for students to get exposed to a culture they've never seen before. We have a very good faculty team of 20+ professors and assistant professors.
I gave JEE MAINS and then JEE ADVANCED. I got AIR 2599 in JEE ADVANCED. I opted this as IIT is the best college available in India and it has been my dream to study here.
IIT-JEE 2016 , AIR 6629 , IIT guwahati is a college. It has its name and fame. So i chose it because it has all the facilities like co curricular and has a beautiful campus to stay at.
IIT JEE ,Sc rank 612. This college is one of the best colleges in India. So I took this college.The branch is also belongs in the best branches.
I took IIT JEE 2011 and got AIR 1751.I am interested in computer science and luckily. I got mathematics and computing .It was a good time of my life.
Admission in an IIT is through JEE. I scored 218/360 in the JEE Advanced exam and my AIR was 1130. There was no particular reason for opting this specific college, I wanted to do my major in computer science and IIT Guwahati was the first college from the top ranked ones that I could get at this rank. I had an interest in computers and mathematics therefore opted for this particular branch.
