    @BChanakya I don't see what you mean.
    IDK if the cutoffs will be higher or not... sure hope not :/
    Physics was long not tough. That's what it was like for me...

    What are your applicant IDs?

    It Oscar not meant for people living in India.. you have to attend high school abroad and Britain isn't a part of the list of the countries eligible... that is the reason I said you won't get any benefits from DASA

    No I am eligible. DASA is for both NRI's and Foreign Nationals/PIO's.
    The condition for NRI's is that they have to study 11th and 12th abroad. There is no such condition for Foreign Nationals/PIO's.

    Do you think mechanical will be the most sought after branch this year too?
    Why do most people prefer south indian NITs?

    There were a little fewer applicants last year...but there has been more widespread efforts to popularised this scheme..so the numbers will keep on rising

    Mechanical, Electronics and Communication and Computer Science; they are the top, most popular branches. The southh NITs ie Trichy, Warangal, Surathkal are consistently ranked in the top 3 so that is why they are preferred.
