My Merit list is 5856 in NPAT (UG) and Can I get admission in B. Tech in computer science in mumbai campus of (MPSTME)?
Thanks for the A2A. First of all sit back, take a deep breadth and relax. You did what you had to in the exam, there is no need to be worried about what rank you would score because no one can predict that.
Your rank is completely subjective to other mates who gave the exam with you, you might be in the top 100 or the top 1000 you never know. What I can tell you is four years back when I came for my admission to the college, my rank was 1329 and I was comfortably able to secure a seat in the computer engineering department.
But again that was in 2013, competition has increased a lot in the last four years I believe.
Answering your question as to which branch you should be applying to, I would say it is completely your decision. Do not come under the false impression of “scope” which your parents or relatives might give you about different branches. Whatever branch you take you would be creating your own opportunities there. So listen to yourself and go ahead with what you think is best after an in depth research.
Best of luck for your future endeavours
