Your CGPA after 2 semesters (1st year) should be above 8.5 2. Your department strength should not fall below 10% of the required number 3. The destination department strength should not increase beyond 10% of the required number After all this is satisfied, you will be ranked among the other top scorers in your branch as well as in the institute. You will also be required to input 10 choices of destination department/branch (just like during JEE counselling). Things after this are completely merit based. For example, if you have scored 9.0 but 5 others in your branch are above 9.0, they will get a preference over you."
