Sir i got 285 rank in gbu entrance exam 2020 . But sill i didnt get any of the branch ( CS, IT, ECE , AI) in first round. can i get cs in second round?
Hi shivam Diwedi,
It is always good to wait till last round during counseling process , as there will be many students who wants to get in another college. Since , your rank is 285 , you have to wait for second round. Even , there is Btech-Mtech integrated courses in the field of CS. so, you can apply for that also.
All the best and Happy learning
gbu is a good college for biotechnology ???
Yes it's Good college for Biotechnology.
Usually even in the best colleges in India, there is no dedicated block for biotechnology in campus but in Gautam Buddha University there is a dedicated building for students of biotechnology which they don't share with any branch of Engineering.
