NIT-Tiruchirappalli or NIT-Warangalâ€”How to Make an Informed Decision?
Exam-stress does not necessarily end with the exam. To prove this theory is the post JEE-Main 2014 horror that have already started taking a toll on the lives of innocentJEE-Main 2014 candidates. All right!! Post-exam stress over a number of concerns are quite common and must be taken care of by simply keeping calm and managing the stress effectively.
If you are among 1.5 candidates topping the JEE-Main 2014 examination then you will have to appear finally for the JEE-Advanced 2014 examination to study one of your favorite streams in the hallowed IITs. However, NITs (National Institute of Technology) only consider scores obtained by students in JEE-Main for their admissions to some of the best streams offered by the institution.
Many NIT aspirants due to several reasons fail to make an informed decision every year. They either fail to take admission to a stream of their choice or just cannot get admission in the institution. Considering this scenario, we have brought you a complete study of two best NITsâ€”NIT Tiruchirappalli and NIT Warangalâ€”for you to help make an informed decision by analyzing every key feature and detail of NITs in a deeper way.
Closing Ranks for NIT Tiruchirappalli and NIT Warangal
Undoubtedly, NIT Tiruchirappalli and NIT Warangal are two best NITs in India. The closing ranks for these two hallowed institutions were 1344 and 1921 respectively last year in 2013. Considering the JEE-Main 2014 examination was tougher than the last year, the closing ranks for these two government-funded engineering institutions in India are predicted to be around the same figures this time around as well.
So to score a seat in any of the two NITs, you will have to hit a ranking somewhere around that.
