FAQ

1. What is the Branch-wise Cut-Off?

There is no branch-wise cut-off. All the candidates can attend the counseling. In such counseling where a candidate has to be physically present, sometimes many top rankers do not turn up. Some others are interested in a particular branch and the moment the seats of that branch are filled up, they leave. If you have a high score you stand a good chance to get a seat. If your rank is lower than that, you can still hope to get a seat. For this purpose you can apply for the waiting list by filling up the form and depositing Rs.1,00000/- by bank draft. As and when a seat falls vacant, this will be filled up from the waiting list.

2. What is cut-off for SET entrance exam?

There is no cut-off. Students will be admitted on merit starting with the highest marks. Please refer to the answer against Q. No 1.

3. When is the merit list going to be displayed?

It will be displayed after the declaration of result and receipt of applications in the institute.

4. Are we going to be informed personally about date and time of counseling?

The date and time of counseling has already been informed though advertisements and postings on the Website. Please refer to the website.

5. Are parents also required at the time of counseling?

Parents are not required but they can accompany the candidate, if they wish to.

6. If my score is less should I come for counseling, as I have to travel from a far-off place?

It is your decision. If you feel you have even a remote chance, you should come. Refer to answer against Q.No.1 for more details.

7. Should I bring all the fees at the time of counseling?

Rs.1,00000/- has to be deposited through bank draft drawn in favour of "Symbiosis Institute of Technology", Pune, payable at Pune.

8. If I have some other exam or admission process at some other college, then are the parents allowed to come and confirm the admission?

No, the candidate has to be personally present.

9. What is AIEEE, IIT-JEE cut-off for last year?

IIT-JEE used to declare an Extended Merit List. In the last 2 years they did not declare it. The result shown was either Selected or Not Selected. Because of this most of the seats reserved for IIT-JEE (at SIT) were shifted to AIEEE and SET. So there were no cut-offs in IIT-JEE. In case of AIEEE some candidates were admitted against seats which fell vacant at a very late stage (one month after the start of classes), because of which the AIEEE cut-off came down. But such Cut-offs are not a good indicator for decision making regarding attending or not attending the counseling. Every year is a different year. However, from this year JEE(Main) will be conducted at National level.
