Overall It's Amazing , but in some situation it is horrible

Batch of Jan. 1, 2020 | B.Tech and M.Tech Ocean Engineering and Naval Architecture
At First college life is appreciatable and i am enjoying it very well , let me first start with hostel life. the infrastuctures in many hostels are good mean really really nice and there are some old hostel in which infrastucture is not good but they are working on it .and the life in the kgp hostel can't be explain in words it really awesome .The facilities provided by hostel are also well , now we have everything we want in hostel . let talk about main our faculty , As all we know IITs have best faculties , some of them are excellent , a few worst but I expericene both type of professer , we say that worse but actually there the best who think about you in own life , because every student matters.In this real world we must experience bad time also because of yourself , friend , professor , senior and anybody .And we start blaming the other person who u think ruined your life but actually the we are living in IIT kharagpur gave everybody a culture that is "God is busy , May I help you" and you always have aleast a person who will help you in any problem any means Any whether its your personal or professional for that you may be approch a specific person or not as your wish . The student crowd in college is huge , I cannot write in number because they are family and we know families are not countable . There we go second last topic placement , placement are only depends upon a student. Its simple they wants CGPA , but also they are not want an engineer At first they want a good person. placement in kharagpur is great , but some of students are not happy with that because its simple they dont have CGPA greater than 7 .But Any IITian is capable of doing any impossible thing to possible. so many student start there alternate path for achieving success. Now every student in IIT kgp are became successful in his/her life because they make there own path. Now every IIT is affordable , you get a education loan and many chances to good scholarship , So i dont think so , may be its unaffordable for some body but you get a right path to tackle that problem , don't lose hope buddy .

A great environment for a student to give efforts in and achieve what you want. Numerous opportunities to follow your dreams. A large number of courses are offered from engineering branches to research field, from financial to law schools. College culture is so impressive for the students to learn and become an expert. 2200 acres of campus with so many societies which fulfil the interest of the students. Some of them are Robotics, Spats, TDS, TLS, Entrepreneur Cell and many more which are governed by the student community. General Championship held every year between the hostels brings a large number of participants with enthusiasm. This is really a great journey for the students to become professional and achieve what they want. Here the creative dreams comes alive and make a person who serve with the best works.

Hello! Whatre my chances of getting shortlisted by iit kharagpur for mba? My CAT percentile is 82.36 overall, V: 84.51, DI:78.59, Q: 78.00, X: 61% Assam State Board, XII: 67% Assam State Board, Graduation (Engineering): 76.70% thanks. Male, OBC-NCL.

Sampriti Student Expert 25th Jan, 2020
VGSOM IIT Kharagpur requires a minimum of 90 percentile in CAT and it only considers the overall percentile and not the sectional ones. So it may be a little difficult to get a call from there. But since you've a pretty decent CAT percentile so you can still get some very good colleges like
  • LBSIM Delhi
  • BIM Trichy
  • LIBA Chennai
  • BIMTECH Noida
  • XIME Bangalore
  • Department of Management Studies, IISc Bangalore
  • FMS BHU
  • XISS Ranchi
  • Christ University Bangalore
  • IFIM Business School and others.

All of them are good in terms of academics and placements with strong alumni base. So you must try to appear for their GD/PI processes, given that you've registered for them.

Moreover among these colleges also BIM Trichy, BIMTECH Noida and LBSIM Delhi will offer you placement opportunities as good as IIT Kharagpur with an average compensation package of 10-12 lakhs.

Good Luck

if I get 47 percentile in jee mains2020 can I get seat in iit kharagpur

Vikas gehlot 17th Jan, 2020

Admission to IIT Kharagpur is based on JEE advanced and not JEE main only

To appear for JEE advanced you need to first qualify JEE main and at this percentile score it is almost impossible to get qualified for JEE advanced therefore I would suggest you to appear for JEE main April session and score more than 90 percentile to be eligible to appear for JEE advanced and then get a good rank in JEE advanced to secure a seat in IIT Kharagpur

Hi Everyone I really want a fair suggestion whether I should apply for IIT Kharagpur and IIT Madras MBA programs? I have secured 95.31 in Cat, in dialemma because of low marks in 10th(68.4) , while in B.Tech and 12th has more than 80 and has 2 yrs of work ex. Thanks in Advance!

Sampriti Student Expert 15th Jan, 2020
You should go for VGSOM IIT Kharagpur. Though both are equally good colleges and you'll have good academic programs over there but VGSOM has a great reputation among corporates and has a stronger alumni base at higher levels as compared to IIT Madras. These  colleges condider only the overall CAT percentile which should be minimum 90.Your previous records won't be a huge concern if you perform well in the subsequent selection rounds. With your scores you can also check out colleges like
  • MDI Gurgaon
  • IMI Delhi
  • IMT Ghaziabad
  • XIMB Bhubaneshwar
  • Sailesh j Mehta School of Management
  • Department of Financial Studies, University of Delhi and others.

Good Luck
