Just to tell you guys something, most of the reserved category guys struggle a lot in IITs or NITs. You automatically become the top 25% if you are from General category and now almost a topper material in your section if you are a Male General with no EWS category.
I know ts hard, and its getting harder. You probably wont get the branch that you would have gotten 3 years ago. But you cant do nothing about it. And a score of 220 will remain great no matter what. A 60% in Advance is great no matter what. And now you know that once you get into college, you will have a huge advantage over your peers that will translate to great placements as well.
Just pointing out a positive perspective from a college student.
