According to Kota coaching centre officials, students in Kota are likely to get the top ranks in the All-India Ranking of JEE Main 2018, the entrance test for admission in engineering colleges across the country.
“Students from our institute are likely to dominate the JEE Mains 2018 ranking and results and we are hoping for top ranks for our students in Top 10 list,” the director of Allen Career Institute, Naveen Maheshwari said.
“At least two students from the coaching institutes in Kota are likely to grab the ranks in Top 5 merit list and at least four can get into the Top 10,” RK Verma of Resonance Eduventures Private Limited said.
Number of students appeared for JEE main 2018
Nearly 12,00,000 students appeared for JEE Main 2018 offline as well as online exams conducted by the Central Board for Secondary Education (CBSE) and only 220,000 will be eligible for the next phase of JEE Advanced for admission to Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and other top engineering institutes.
There were nearly 9,800 aspirants who appeared in JEE Main 2018 across 18 exam centres in Kota on April 8.
Why is your All-India-Rank important?
The All-India Rank is used for admissions to National Institute of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs), Centrally Funded Technical Institute (CFTI), Self-Financed Institutes (SFIs), and other institutes.
The centres are making the claims after calculating the marks obtained by their students according to the answer key of the JEE Mains 2018 that was recently released by the Central Board for Secondary Education (CBSE). They say the topper is likely to score around 350 marks or above, reports HT.
“One of our students has scored 350 marks out of 360 marks as per the answer key so he is likely to get a rank in the Top 5 but the exact rank cannot be calculated as we do not know the marks of every aspirant in the country,” Verma of the Resonance Coaching Institute said.
The officials also said that a large number of aspirants from Kota will clear JEE Mains 2018 and are likely to get ranks in Top 100 and Top 500.
Ahuja said the possibility of the bonus marks in JEE Mains 2018 is unlikely as the answer key released by the board was the same as that prepared by the coaching institutes.
