    Lateral entry is not allowed to B.Sc. qualified candidtes. This is only allowed to diploma holders in a Branch of engineering. You have to appear for JEE. so far as your eligibility to appear for JEE is concerned, you should be not more than 21 years of age and should have secured more than 60% marks. In addition now you are allowed only 2 attempts at JEE.
