Infrastructure is very good, some teachers are very good and some are normal. No one motivates you except one or two teachers in the college. The civil department is best but its merit is high{CET}. You need to focus on subjects on ur own. The hostel facility is fine ,The college provides unlimited wifi with very high speed.

I am from obc category can I get admission in GCET Jammu how much I have to score if I want to pursue B tech in GCET Jammu in civil engineer

Lalit Solanki Student Expert 18th Jul, 2019

It matters what branch you are opting for because if you want civil it will end up under 110 rank,but if you just want to end up taking admission in gcet without any interest of branches alloted then be under 1000 rank if in general or above 1000 if you have any category and in my estimation 600 rank was of a candidate having 45 marks in total in jkcet. I think it will help you
I don't know about the cutoff but in the first round of counseling, mostly people had less than 400 Rank.
Civil was having the lowest cutoff.
The last intake in first round wae probably Rank 103 or something.
Thank you :)
With your rank you might get those branches after upgradation.
