2.Are there specific numbers of seats allotted for each branch?Yes! Specific numbers of seats are allotted for each department and there is an overall 365 seats available. But 50% of the seats are specially allotted for the Muslim category and apart from that, the remaining seats can be availed.
3. What combination of marks should I get in both the 12th board examination and entrance exam to avail a seat in AMU?The candidate should have obtained a minimum of aggregate 50% marks in PCM subjects. Hence, if you score more than 60 in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics and your PCM aggregate is greater than 50% than you are eligible for admission.

However there is NRI quota available but candidates who come in through NRI quota also have to attend the entrance exam as to be eligible to get a seat of their own choice. 5. Will preparation for exams like JEE, BITSAT, AEEE, etc be enough to clear AMUEEE exam? If you are a science student in standard 12 giving JEE-Mains, chances are that you would also be giving AMUEEE. With serious preparation for JEE-Mains, you don't have to put in much effort to study anything extra for AMUEEE. But, however some topics are different from JEE-Mains but most of the topics are similar to BITSAT. While JEE-Mains is considered to be tough and concentrates more on the problem solving ability, AMUEEE is relatively simpler and focuses more on time management.
6. Is there a possibility of rank prediction, cutoff marks?There is no way for rank prediction unless the university declares the final cut off along with the ranks/marks. Every year, according to the marks scored by candidates, the cutoff varies and thus it is very difficult to predict.
7. Are there separate cut off marks for separate parts/papers?No! There are no separate cutoff marks for separate parts/papers. The university considers only the overall marks and then prepares a list of ranking accordingly.
8. If I do not get elected, will all my efforts go in vain?"Success is the sum of small efforts put in day in and day out".

9. Duration of study needed to get surely selected. Is self preparation enough or does one need extra classes, to clear the exam?It is a common sight of many students joining coaching centers.

At the same time, self preparation is much sufficient but that doesn't mean going to the extra classes is wrong. It is always good to attend coaching classes where the students are provided with materials, question papers, mock tests, etc. All these enhance the overall speed and helps in time management. For any entrance exam, steady preparation for a year along with sound classroom knowledge is more than sufficient to clear the exam.
