If you are from general category, I am afraid you have very little chance provided your marks and rank. But do not worry you will get a lot of colleges to choose from.

All the best!

Hey Swati,
All the NITs accept admission through JEE Mains only.

You can't take admission through any other exam.

You should try on your home state NIT so you will get better branch !

good luck!
