Can you please suggest me the IITs where I have a better chance of getting admission rather than just been shortlisted. Thank you
Hello YoHo ,
Congrats for the achievement.
First of all you can't avoid moving between cities. If you are shortlisted for screening in 5 institutes, your chances of getting selected in all 5 of them are equal. It eventually boils down to 'your own choices and preferences in case of clashes'. (Suggest you to go through 'Success/ Failure stories at http://in.biotechstudents.com/category/e.../my-story/
Based on your rank and score (and recent news about IIT Bombay's cutoff), you stand a chance of getting shortlisted by almost every IIT.
It would eventually depend upon your written test and interview during the screening at various IITs. As I mentioned in one of my experiences, a person in Top 10 of GATE BT in 2011 was not selected after written test. And I, with a percentile of 99.6 was knocked out of the interview at IIT Kanpur. During screening, your GATE Rank/Marks hardly matter, if you won't clear their written, you will be sent back; if you can't handle their interview questions, you will be shown the door (no matter you're Rank 1 or Rank 500 person).
When it comes to really great interviews by every candidate, that's when interviewers are forced to use the GATE Marks and Screening marks for final selection.
Your marks are good enough to compete with everyone out there. All you need to do is "move ahead and face the heat".
Apply everywhere, when it comes to clashes, we will discuss later and decide. Till then, all the best.
