IEM Kolkata FAQs

Which is better, IEM Kolkata or HIT Kolkata?

Based on the WBJEE rankings, IEM ranks higher than Heritage(HIT), and comes just after JU and Shibpur BE college. But, when it comes to placements both have almost the same set of mass IT recruiters offering almost the same package, without any differentiation between the topper and the bottom of the class guy. If you want a better happening college life, i would say go for Heritage, as it has a sprawling campus with good infrastructure, which IEM lacks, being situated in the heart of the corporate center in the city.

Entrance Exams & Admissions : There are two procedures of getting admission in this college. 1. Through JEEs and 2. Through Management Quotas. But since I took admission through WBJEE counselling, so don't have much knowledge about management quotas. The college takes admission through two JEEs; 1. JEE MAIN and 2. WBJEE. I took WBJEE, well the cutoffs for my branch was less than 2500. And different branches've different cut-offs.
