I am very sorry to say,but you are not eligible for getting admission in NIT under Lateral entry scheme,as NITs and IITs don't allow Diploma students to take admission in directly B.Tech 2nd year.I also became very sad,when i heard that,but you don't loose heart,there are many reputed Engineering Colleges which allows Lateral entry to Diploma holders.
For getting admission in Engineering under LEET,you need to score a really good rank in order to get top reputed Engineering Colleges.
Eligibility for Lateral Entry admissions:
- You must have completed your 10Th with minimum 40% marks from a recognized Education board.
- You must not have any backlog left in 10Th.
- Your age must not be more than 23 years.
Duration of degree course on the basis of Lateral entry scheme= 3years.
Most prestigious Engineering Colleges offering Lateral entry admissions are:
Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology,Patiala.
Guru Gobind Singh IP University,Delhi.
Sant Longoval Institute of Engineering and Technology,Sangrur.
Harcourt Butler Technological Institute,Kanpur.
Punjab Technical University,Jallandhar.
Guru Tegh Bahadur Institute of Technology,Delhi
Amity School of Engineering and Technology,Noida
Delhi Technological University,Delhi.
Netaji Subhash Institute of Technology,Delhi.
Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College,Ludhiana
DAV Institute of Engineering and Technology,Jallandhar.
