In Sastra University the admission is done on the basis of scores obtained in jee mains and 12th scores.
As per your scores you have fair chances of getting core branches like mechanical, electrical,civil branches. But this is as per the previous year trends . There are certain factors such as number of candidates appearing in the counselling, previous year cutoffs and number of seats available in the college which determines the current year cut offs.
But you can be assured that you will get any of these branches.
Sorry to say but you will not be able to get a seat.
It always depends on the competition for the seats at SASTRA. Sometimes you might, Sometimes you can’t. Below is the counseling status:
Let me share the counseling statuses in 2017. I secured AIR 1333 under stream 1. I had a friend whose AIR was 450 under stream 1. He was called on the first day-first session. I was called on the second day-first session. Now, let me be accurate, each session is conducted for 600 students and 2 sessions like this happen per day.
Now, here’s the data after day 1 counseling regarding the number of seats left in various departments. These results were made available on the sastra website after day-1 counseling was over.
CSE : 0
ECE : 0
IT : 0
Chemical: don't remember
Now, On day 2, I can guarantee that 80 people went up for choice filling but only 20–30 people chose their seats because the others wanted only CSE or ECE and hence they left without choosing. The next 100 ( i.e., from 1300–1400) were called in groups of 27 and they were given choices to choose from.
Chemical: don't remember
EEE ends by 1100 and ECE by 700–800, and CSE by 400. But that day was different, somehow the odds were in my favor.
Extra Info: Here are some seat details I would like to give from what I have heard from others,
EEE was there until 1400 appx. ( my other friend was 1393 and chose EEE)
Mech was there until 1405–1410 ( I heard some parents getting disappointed when their child was just a few ranks from where Mechanical was over).
Mechatronics was there until 1550–1600.
and the rest, I just don't know…. :)
hope SASTRA aspirants find this informative. Don't take this year’s counseling for granted, these seats can vary next year.. who knows, maybe all core branches can get over by 1000.. several people who attend the counseling matter your result the most because’ the seats they choose affect your decision.
Feel free to ask more questions.
All The Best.
There are two admissions streams, first.
JEE main scores plus Intermediate Score (70% seats) in Stream 1
Only Intermediate scores (30% seats) in Stream 2
You have a fair probability of getting into Sastra utilising stream 1 if your rank is around 1300 but your rank is larger. With this score, passing stream 2 is nearly impossible. Thus, you might obtain the branches below.
