    Your motive to become software engineer can be fulfilled and you can get admission at LPU, but you have to follow this pathway/option as the minimum eligibility criteria required in B.Tech CSE is 60% and as you have less than that you cannot be admitted in that programme. But there is definitely an option of getting admission in Diploma engineering (can get Direct admission based on 10th Percentage and after completing your Diploma you can get lateral entry admission in B.Tech CSE preferred if you meet the minimum eligibility criteria than.

    Dear Student,
    If you wish to be a software engineer, and your scores are 55% in class 12th, but that won't help you to meet the eligibility criteria for admission in a good reputed university. So, I would suggest you that you can take up Diploma course in CSE and further opt for Dual Degree programme, which will help you financially as well. There are lot of Colleges which offer Diploma in Computer Science, one of the best option is Lovely Professional University- Punjab. For more details, you can visit the website and contact LPU counselors: www.lpu.in

    Hi,The eligibility for passing engineering exam is:-1. Pass 12th with minimum 50% marks from recognized University or Board.2. For ST/SC candidate minimum 45% marks is require. The age limit for exam is 17-25 year.So yes you can study B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering and can become a software engineering. However for placements the scenario might be pretty different. Most of the top companies come with criteria of 70-75% throughout in academics and 90% of the companies including IT companies have a criteria of 60% or above in academics to sit for their placements. However there a few companies having criteria of 50-55% in academics ... view more

    Hi,
    I think you will not get a good college at this percentage but don't get upset. If you are interested to become a software engineer then go for different certification courses on various languages like big data, python, Java, Pearl, etc. to slowly build up a strong resume. I have seen people excelling in this field when they didn't have good percentage but if you really want to pursue B.Tech then go for dropping a year but dropping a year usually don't work out in most cases.

    The minimum requirement for the admissions for B.Tech is 60 percent, but you can apply for the admissions, also, you can contact the head office and convince them for the same.
    Unfortunately, if you are unable, you can either take drop for JEE preparations, or else you can talk to some other private colleges nearby your locality even better if they are state government funded or affiliated to any government university. Though, you will definitely get your admissions in LPU, if you push yourself a little more.
