If they score good they get college on the basis of ranking. The procedure is simple. There are 300 seats available in college.

Eligibility Criteria and Admission Process
7/10

The admission in GCET (G.H. Patel college of engineering and technology) is done on the basis of your JEE (mains) and 11-12th marks. 60% of your 12th board marks (state board /central board /icse) is considered and 40% of the JEE mains is used. On basis of this merit list is created and based on rankings of different colleges admission procedure is carried out. This all admission is carried out by ACPC(admission commission of professional courses). Link :www.jacpcldce.ac.In above procedure, a token of INR 20,000 rupees is first paid to ACPC and rest of the fees is paid to college (fees excluding 20,000). For example let's say: My merit rank was 6826 and the cut off for mechanical was 7000 rank so I will get in mechanical engineering branch. But if my rank was more than 7000 then I won't get admission. The same applies to different branches as well. The other way of admission is through management quota where you need to pay the fees for 1 year directly and separate rank is allocated in this case rather than the ACPC Rank as mentioned above.
