  1. i need it
    there are two wrong 65 -c
    and 85 a please chek it out
    tell me how much marks is sufficient to get rank within 200 plz

  2. yes you are right 85 for b
    i have done 34/37 in resoning right and 20/24 in mathematics right and not done any question in eng and computer is there any possibility to get in.
    i can do much better but time is less than required

    1. There is always scarcity of time in competitive examinations.
      that's why i started attempting questions before the time and i was able to finish 16 questions till invigilator came and snatched my admit card.

  3. I have done 55/64 as correct/total.

  4. # NO, each question carries equal marks.
    Each correctly answered question will carry FOUR marks and each wrongly answered question will lead to NEGATIVE ONE mark.
    # In my view every NIT is best, what do you need from college, infrastructure, good faculty, placements. Then every NIT has all of these. At the end of the day, its your work that will pay you, not just the name of college.

    # and yes, I guess we'll get near 1000.
    if it is, then we are not getting in.
    I got rank 1200+something last year,that didn't do anything good to me.

  5. as i said i would have done 1 or 2 questions still i got rank card last time.
    may its because i still don't get zero.

  6. hi! I attempted 82 questions out of which 76 are correct can u plz tell me what rank I might get!!

    1. How many of those are maths questions ?

      your chance of getting admission in one of the NIT looks good.

    2. I attemted 28/30 maths ,24/28 reasoning ,18/18 English,6/6 comp awareness.

      and ur ans to English ques 92 and 99 are incorrect they wii be B and A plz check

    3. hey can u tell me which one is better for mca nit kurukshetra or ip university main campus (usit)?

    4. JAM
      Ip university
      Punjab university cet

    5. wow....
      you are sure to get campus.

      and you should have applied for pune instead of JAM and tezpur university.
      pune is top university for mca, just check the syllabus and you will know the class of university.

  7. Hey i have done 72 questions out of which 62 are correct. frm which i attmpted 18 maths quetions and 16 are correct.. plzz tel can i expect a good rank in NIT .?

  8. Honestly I am no expert, just a student like you who appeared in NIMCET.

    still I think you would get less than 750.

  9. I tell you all something that might help.

    Last year i attempted near 60 questions, from them only 1 or 2 questions were attempted from maths, i didn't check but i think half of my questions were sure to be incorrect. Still i got 1232 rank in open category.

    but i'm unable to guess rank this time as this year question paper was much much easier than last time or any former nimcet exam.

  10. Mine is 468(411)marks ... Do u think i can get NIT kuk ?

    1. though my guesses are going pathetically wrong, still i think you have a chance, 424 seats are available, some of them in the middle will be categorial students, some of them i hope would fail in final semester exams,some of the top rankers would opt for other institutes.
      and there you are in NIT KUK.

  11. though my guesses are going pathetically wrong, still i think you have a chance, 424 seats are available, some of them in the middle will be categorial students, some of them i hope would fail in final semester exams,some of the top rankers would opt for other institutes.
    and there you are in NIT KUK.
