i prepared a spreadsheet of various colleges participating in josaa(except IITs) with the round cutoffs for respective colleges and branches. i found something odd, a gen student was allotted ECE in NIT puducherry (with home state quota i guess). the closing rank for NIT puducherry ECE was 1,20k(the rank of the boy mentioned above) and for EEE 1,50k.
this is nuts. HS and OS quota ranks do not differ much when rank is this far away. and i had filled both ECE and EE in nit puducherry keeping it at mid preference. why wasnt i allotted a seat even after 44k in mains.

Sorry dude, but in this case, the difference between HS and OS quota is massive.
Last year, the closing rank for ECE (OS) was 21,118, but for HS it was 1,43,449
i am not able to understand why. its not even clubbed with other quota, simple general quota rank. still such a big difference!
Nit Puducherry isn't very well known in tamil nadu. People prefer IIIT kancheepuram over it. That somewhat explains the huge difference.
Nit puducherry, goa and manipur are exception
Their HS gen quota easily crosses 1 lakh.
