Companies recruiting with eligibility criteria less than 60%

A lot of students are sending us messages asking about companies that accept applications if the students have less than 60% aggregate in final year or all four years of engineering. It seems that it has become a norm for all companies coming for campus recruitment to put up an eligibility criteria of minimum 60%. Some companies go a step forward and demand more than 60 % throughout in 10th and 12th boards and even in the 4-year B.E or B.Tech course.

Though it might seem unfair for the students who got less marks due to some serious health issues or dropping out due to personal problems, that's how it is for most companies.


Now, CrazyEngineers is flooded with queries such as these:


I have done B.Tech (computer science) with 70%. In 12th I got 50% and in 10th I scored 63%. Please let me know if I am eligible for IT companies' jobs. Am I eligible for MNC company or non MNC company?
I am having below 60% in b.tech, but above 60% in 10th & 12th inform me for which companies I can apply?
My current GPA is 8.2 and in 12th 68% but I screwed the 10th result that is 58%. So help me, Is this mistake gonna pay me in future.!! so what should I do..??

You get the gist. There are many students worried about campus placements right from their 1st year in an engineering college. A lot of co-students, seniors, relatives and even some online forums seem to be spreading rumours about you not being eligible in any company. I have read questions from engineering students, where they regret taking admission in engineering even after scoring good in B.E. or B.Tech because of the fear of not being eligible for campus placements on account of poor grads in 10th or 12th board exams.

Well, here's the truth: Percentage, scores and aggregates don't matter.


Most MNCs and other IT companies do not care about 60% eligibility criteria. (at least not in your 10th or 12th boards). Though it is true that eligibility criterion varies every year from college to college depending upon the requirement of the job, over the last few years most popular companies have recruited students who have less than 60% (and even less than 50% in some cases). Names of these tech giants includes - TCS, Cognizant, Wipro, Siemens, TechMahindra, Convergys, Zensar, Accenture, HP, HCL, Dell, Lenovo etc. There are many other IT companies whose names you might not have heard yet.


Now comes the part where you get to sit for campus placements or not. You might get and might not, but then there are walk-ins going on year round in most tech & IT service companies. Many of them do not give any weightage to SSC and HSC scores.


Pro Tip: A fresher will always get better work exposure in a small IT company. It is advisable to learn as much as you can in a small company for initial 2-3 years and then plan to join a MNC. The reason being that you will get a chance to reach a higher position very quickly in a small company as excellent performance gets noticed very easily over there. However, due to extreme competition, it is not easy to climb up the organisational hierarchy in a MNC.


In any company, there are certain skills that the recruiters demand from every job applicant. Here are the top ones:

1. Ability to communicate well.

2. Good aptitude skills. (to determine your analytical & reasoning skills)

3. Basic knowledge of at least one technology.


My suggestion is to stop bothering about your SSC and 10+2 marks and percentage and concentrate on improving your communication and aptitude skills. Find a subject you love in your curriculum and become better at it when you have free time on your hands during college. If you have the skills, the recruiters will definitely spot the talent.


If you have any queries regarding this, please ask in replies below.

I request fellow engineers to share their experiences and add suggestions to make this useful for engineering students.

@Anoop Kumar @Koushal Patel Guys, would love to read your thoughts on the topic.

Though I have been victim of the this 60% criteria. But they have to filter out students at some level. They also have to spend money on recruitment.
May be they can introduce like, if you are failing this through out 60%, you have to have 200+ numbers combined with X, XII and Graduation percentage.
This will rule out the excuses of having problem in all exams.

But this is truth that, typical campus IT recruitment is not the end. If you don't get selected in campus recruitment, there is perfectly 100% 'chance' that you will get to know your true potential , what exactly you like to do.

This says it all about the issue.
Sometimes I think, we are stopping many wonderful brains to come up with some beautiful stuffs due to this process of hiring.
Keep on trying clicking some companies which do not recruits seeing the mark-sheet.
PS: Anyways, in today's world, mark-sheets do not earn dollars for these IT companies. It is the right-Knowledge-Applied-At-Right-Place, which matters. Hope, companies would change their way to hire the buds.

A very valid point put forth by you. Many HR managers are seen discussing the issue. The gap is clearly visible. The big IT companies are hiring in huge numbers and are still not able to find the appropriate candidate for the job. Even technical & soft-skill training is fruitless for some of these employees. I guess the hiring process needs to be changed.
Keeping a high eligibility criteria for grades and then conducting interviews where either they ask final year students to write a C or Java code and select anyone who can produce a mugged-up code for fibonacci series - seems like an age-old technique that has to GO! Even in HR interviews, some of these IT companies hire anyone who can speak good English and has above average marks on the academic scale.

If the companies do away with the eligibility criteria of minimum 60% or minimum 50% and make modifications instead in the hiring process, by making students aware of the projects they will be working on before-hand or giving them to prepare on technical topics by themselves and then judging them bases on their practical skills, that should work out to be way better than the current model.

Did you passed out last year or this June only?
Is there any criteria in colleges to get admission even if you get good rank in entrance exams?

You can always take admission in college. Depends on college management policy.

Don't worry. There are lots of people been in your situation and they are doing fine. But yes, at fresher level there might be some companies which put the criteria of 60%. So just pass other 90% of companies wouldn't put this restriction.

Hi Sir/Madam,
I am P.PRADEEP KUMAR from Andhra Pradesh and completed my B.TECH course with major CSE and secured 70.56% passout 2014 .In intermediate i secured 85.2% and finally in tenth class i.e CBSE secured as 55.56%.

My question is what kind of software jobs that am i applicable and post be the links for applying jobs me.
Hello sir my marks in class 12th is 53% but after improvement it is 67%. Right now I am placed in wipro but at the time of placement the criteria for Wipro was 60% in 10 and 10+2 and 65% in b.tech.... But my college allowed me to sit in placement drive based on my improvement marks. So I want to ask you that will Wipro cancel my offer as my marks in 12th is less than 60 before improvement or do they consider improvement marks?
Anoop Kumar
Anoop Kumar • Jul 20, 2015
@abhishek , you *have nothing to wary about. Your final improvement mark will be considered everywhere.
Anoop Kumar
@abhishek , you are nothing to wary about. Your final improvement mark will be considered everywhere.
so, should I mention in my resume that the 12th marks is 67% (after improvement)?

Also I want to ask that I have to fill nsr(national skill registry) form as wipro has asked us to do it in the pre-joining formalities. But in nsr field how do i mention my 12th roll number and also 12th improvement roll number as there is only one field for hsc. Below is the nsr form screenshot.
nsr

Anoop Kumar • Jul 21, 2015
I don't think you need to mention "Improvement", unless specifically asked. Treat your improved marks as usual. If someone ask, then only you should tell.

@sahil angra 69% isn't a bad score at all. First of all congratulations for getting admission in a good engineering college. If you say it has good placements, that's a cherry on the cake. As told in the posts above 60% is a minimum criteria for some companies, but not all. From here you need to focus on building your skills in the branch you've chosen and forget about the rest for next 3 years. Start by understanding the demands of the industry. Start by trying your hand at different programming languages and technologies and understand what you like the best. Stick to your favorite subject and become a master in it. Resolve to be proficient in the basics of every important subject. If you do that, I promise you that getting placed in a company of your choice will be easy peasy.

@Rajiv12 Many of my classmates had really low percentage in 12th. Compared to that 58.4% isn't as bad as you think. Follow the advice I've given to Sahil above and you shall not regret the time spend during the engineering college days.
Always remember that you have the option of going for companies that do not require 60% aggregate throughout. (May be not through campus placements, but via walk-ins in companies). Apart from that, believe me when I say that if you have really killer coding skills, are really good at web programming or some other computer skill, startups will hire you without giving a second glance at your marks. And if you do decide to work at a startup 4 years down the line, there are chances that you could get paid more than your peers working at an MNC.
Many of my friends who were not eligible for campus placements due to marks, went ahead to do M.Tech or M.S, they have landed up with great jobs too. Others simply decided to start something of your own.

Lastly, if you think that you can spend another year to re-take the 12th board exams without much hassle of funds or time, you can always do that. Thousands of students do that and there's not much difference when you turn 25.

No matter what you choose to do, promise yourself that if you choose to CS or IT as your branch, you will become a really good programmer or a good database expert or a good networking analyst or a good something technically. That's what matters in the long run.

so can u help me wid this plzzzz.

Guys, STOP worrying about marks and not getting job from campus placement.
I agree getting job in placement drive are a part but, did you study only to get job in campus placement or to excel in your engineering degree.
No matter how bad is your marks, an awesome project and good command in subject of branch can fetch any any job you want.
Please focus on that.

Please read the first post of thread, it well explained and can able to answer all your question.

I am a BCA graduate and pursuing my MCA from VIT University. I have scored 84.2% in 10th, 54.6% in 12th, 73.2% in my graduation and my current CGPA is 8.3.
I am not eligible for most of the IT sector companies except ACCENTURE that asked for 6 CGPA in current degree and no arrears.
Is this 60% eligibility criteria applied only during on campus placements ?
Will I face problems because of this if I sit for companies off campus?

Although, I have question for you guys
  • Do you have sound knowledge of core subject or the field of company you are going to apply for.
  • Did you build a awesome final project by yourself, or at-least tried it.
If your answer is YES, You have nothing to wary about. You will get the job of your choice.

If your answer is NO, then frankly speaking. You have all the reason to get wary and get serious about your field. Better start learning. It's never too late.

I have got 90% in 10th but due to some health reasons got 59.2% in 12th. I got 34k rank in AIEEE and took admission in BIT Mesra, Patna Campus in 2012. I have 7.1 pointer till sixth semester. I am unable to sit in any placement inside the campus due to low marks in 12th. Currently preparing for GATE - 2016, E-Litmus. Still I have no idea what to do next ?

Yes,off course recently I have graduated and I too have an aggregate of 58.33%.Thera are about 70% companies ,i found having 60% criteria and about 30% only having 55% criteria.So,yess being a fresher I found one of the good companies that might hire below 60% are TCS,Wipro .

Hello!
I am a final year student and I would like to share a few things regarding the joust between marks and placements which almost everyone is worried about.
First of all, YES you have to clear the BARE MINIMUM eligibility criteria set forth by the company themselves but do keep in mind this changes almost year and as far as I've seen, even between colleges of the same board!
I myself have gone through this 60% issue and didn't make the cut, but falter not I always say. Engineering is easy to get into, but that's not the case when you have to clear all 4 years successfully.
Anyways, back to the placement talk, today in my "decently reputed" college, TCS (Tata Consultancy Services) began their drive and took in 120 students,with a 60% MINIMUM in 10th,12th and B.E.
A few days ago ARICENT (70% IN B.E and 60% in 10th/12th) took in 30 students.
We got a lot more companies coming in and I'll be happy to update this as they come, but my point being the companies set the eligibility criteria based not only on the market stand but also on the cutoff standards based on aptitude and technical performances, and I've personally seen a leeway being given upto 3% on your B.E marks based on your performance in 10/12th or in your projects.
I CANNOT EMPHASIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF THE PROJECTS ENOUGH.
The various moderators on this site have no doubt said this before and I really have to thank them cause I've referred to this site since my 1st Year and is a goldmine of resources and ideas.

This may be true.
But campus placement for work, and it never be sure that a high score student will be good in work. Doesn't matter technical or not.
*Being good in study and being good at work/job are completely two different thing.

Well I guess it's just a process of filtering people!
Many people fail to comply to the 60% margin requirement, that's surely disadvantage to students who couldn't perform due to some health or genuine reasons. I would say try companies who have criteria of 55% or some companies which do not take 12 marks into consideration!. You could always try continuing studying further to get your m.tech or even Ph.d

yes it is very quite unfair for student who score less mark for there heath issue...company should change there hiring style..please sir..those who are the mentor of this website file a case on those company or give fair to those suffer student..this is also the main reason why student are commoting suicide due to less mark in most of the case is 12th class...and the not getting job even they are extraodinary talented

@debadipta nayak We understand the plight of students, but there's very little chance that the companies will take note of these requirements. They recruit on mass level and they almost always find way huge number of applicants who fit in their eligibility criteria. Therefore, companies (especially MNCs) don't feel the need to make changes to their current recruitment process. I think it's not fair if students start committing suicide for not getting jobs. There are tens of other opportunities if one only wishes to explore.

Even then, since you feel that the system should change, you can sign this online petition organised by Change.org -

Dude,it is difficult to get a job in a top mnc's...better you try startup companies that don't care about %.....once you're in ,make sure that you work there for year or more,and then try for Top Mnc's....All the best for your future,even I will use this strategy from now on....

The company in which you can learn most (Technical, process, professionalism) and pay you enough at least to survive for initial days.
After few month or a year, its completely depends on you, whether you can put yourself in situation to get the salary + work you want.

You could always try talking to recruiting companies HR manager or the guy incharge. i have heard that if requested , they would try and allow you take up the interview.try off campus or start off with a low end company which doesn't give any heed to 12th!.
BTW could you tell me the criteria for the companies you mentioned above?

Sayantan Nandy • Sep 22, 2015
Hello mam,
I have secured 63.5% in Secondary in the year 2008. After that I appeared for the senior secondary, but due to some health related problem, i failed two times. After that I joined for Diploma in Computer Science(Polytechnic) and secured overall 79.8%. Then I ranked 16(Trade) rank in JELET, and took admission in KALYANI GOVERMENT ENGINEERING COLLEGE for B.Tech in CSE, presently I am in the 3rd year.
But the 3 years of gap in my studies, will not allow me to appear in the College campusing. So what can I do?

Looking forward to your reply.
Ankita Katdare
Ankita Katdare • Sep 22, 2015
@Sayantan Nandy I am a diploma student as well. I did it straight after my 10th boards. A friend of mine, like you, took admission in Diploma after not getting good scores in 12th. So he thought he wasted 2 years of his career and would not get a job. Sadly for him, he later went to a really low-grade B.E. engineering college and didn't even score 60% in engineering. He later went on to do M.Tech and got hired by an IT MNC.
I guess at M.Tech level, they didn't consider his past scores. I am just guessing here, but that's a real story.

If you aren't thinking about post graduation, you can may be go for a smaller company, take work experience and then hop to a bigger company.

Eligibility for pursuing engineering course is ranging from 40 % to 55 % of marks, which attracts student to undergo engineering degrees. I feel that, those who have scored less than 60 % marks in SSLC, HSC should not pursue engineering degree after investing huge money. At the same time colleges are also strictly not admit those poorly performed students in SSLC and HSC. All engineering colleges should put a board in the entrance that placement from this college will be encouraged only for those who have more than 60 % in SSLC, HSC.

This will reduce huge financial burden among the students and parents and waste of glorious timing spent on studies. Students can choose their own other path to excel in their career.

Added to that, with great struggle students completes their engineering degree with more than 60 % of marks, but the funniest MNC and private companies in the name of filtering process insist on more than 60 % right from 6th, 7th, 8th and up to 12th standard. Why do they need such way to filter the meritorious and skilled candidate? What they need is highest degree and candidate performance in the interview process. Do you think, those score less than 60 % are not fools or discarded people.

It is really pained to see engineering graduates who have obtained less than 60 % of marks in their SSLC, HSC and more than 60 % of marks in their final engineering degree does not meet their aspiration to enter into IT field as per MNC and private filtering process. Finally they land into poorly paid jobs.

So, I request all colleges stop admitting those who scored less marks in SSLC and HSC and keep an awareness board in your premises about placement policies.
sir/madam please provide some valuable opinion in getting a job in mnc. I am having technical knowledge in c language and iam a hard worker .I have a academic percentage of 67%.so please set a path for my placement purpose.Iam ready to work in startups also for gaining experience.Thanks in advance

Hi,
I'm B.Tech CSE batch 2011-2015 Fresher , My B.tech aggregate percentage is 59.8% 😔 but final year i.e. 4th year is 72% , I've seen eligibility criteria of many services based companies like TCS,IBM,Cogizant etc and found out they have min. 60% Eligibity criteria to sit for offsite placement .
On top of that I do have only 1 backlog exam which i'll give in may 2016 rest everything is clear , though i have filled the form of rechecking and hope it'll clear and result will be out in 3 months or so.

So can you please help me by guiding me which services based MNC can hire me even with 1 backlog which i can clear easlily by may 2016 as there would be 6 months training program anyway before real job starts .

OR you can guide me where i can apply where i can get job as I am not able to find any one from past 3-4 months.
I'm real frustrated even though I'm tech geek and passionate about technology , whose all path to job has been delayed by this 1 stupid backlog.
chill bud!!!

well dude !!! I am from jntuh and we do have an option for omitting any two subjects(non core) after completion of all the sem's...and usually if a student is pending with any backlog usually they omit them(iff it is a non core..its done automatically) and round off the total marks excluding those two sub's.I hope you aren't from hyderabad....and if ur are pretty much a tech savvy .......there are few small scale companies in hyd for which u can give a try its always better for a fresher to work in start up's ..all the best!!!

Please anybody give advice to my problem.
Can i get job if apply with employee referral ?

It was my ques BTW:-
"Hi,
I'm B.Tech CSE batch 2011-2015 Fresher , My B.tech aggregate percentage is 59.8% 😔 but final year i.e. 4th year is 72% , I've seen eligibility criteria of many services based companies like TCS,IBM,Cogizant etc and found out they have min. 60% Eligibity criteria to sit for offsite placement .
On top of that I do have only 1 backlog exam which i'll give in may 2016 rest everything is clear , though i have filled the form of rechecking and hope it'll clear and result will be out in 3 months or so.

So can you please help me by guiding me which services based MNC can hire me even with 1 backlog which i can clear easlily by may 2016 as there would be 6 months training program anyway before real job starts .

OR you can guide me where i can apply where i can get job as I am not able to find any one from past 3-4 months.
I'm real frustrated even though I'm tech geek and passionate about technology , whose all path to job has been delayed by this 1 stupid backlog."

Mam but small it companies are not hiring Freshers. And in any case if they hire, they only recruit experienced candidates..and the option a fresher is left with is to wait for an opportunity from MNC, but there the worrying thing is percentage..

You see every eligibility of min 60% is completed , it's just btech aggregate 59.8% short of just 0.2% , i wish of these services based company can give some relaxation for 0.2% as every eligibility is completed.

  • Wipro
Depending on the requirement, these companies do have job offers for candidates who do not have 60% throughout.

Ankita Katdare
Ankita Katdare • Dec 7, 2015
@Shoaib Belim It totally depends on the company's requirement in that particular recruitment period. See, a company gets freshers on board whenever they have a project coming up. The project's requirement can be different. Sometimes, they are looking for particular skills aka PHP, Java or Dot Net etc. So, if someone with the relevant certification turns up and they dont want to look for minimum qualifications or percentage, they waive off the 60% criteria. You will need to be on constant lookout for this. It won't happen all year round. Apart from them, if you dont want to stay idle while looking for a job at an MNC, you can join startup or do freelance work to keep learning + earning.

How does a walk-in interview takes place? I mean what is the whole process, if you can tell.
Ankita Katdare
Ankita Katdare • Dec 7, 2015
@Shoaib Belim Generally walk-ins are city specific. So, TCS in Bangalore will have walk-ins for applicants from that city. The company initially puts out an ad through online portal or newspaper or both. They share important details like eligibility criteria and nature of job and anyone who fits in that can walk in to their office and face the interview round.

And what about people other cities? are they eligible or not? also can you tell about verified/reliable online source or portal where one can get news about such events because there are many portals which are deceptive.

A lot of students are sending us messages asking about companies that accept applications if the students have less than 60% aggregate in final year or all four years of engineering. It seems that it has become a norm for all companies coming for campus recruitment to put up an eligibility criteria of minimum 60%. Some companies go a step forward and demand more than 60 % throughout in 10th and 12th boards and even in the 4-year B.E or B.Tech course.
Though it might seem unfair for the students who got less marks due to some serious health issues or dropping out due to personal problems, that's how it is for most companies.

Now, CrazyEngineers is flooded with queries such as these:


I'm 27 years old. I got 67% in 10th and 50.4% in 12th this year. Now I am working at PWC in third party payroll. May I can be a permanent employee of PWC or any other MNC? What should be my future plan?







You get the gist. There are many students worried about campus placements right from their 1st year in an engineering college. A lot of co-students, seniors, relatives and even some online forums seem to be spreading rumours about you not being eligible in any company. I have read questions from engineering students, where they regret taking admission in engineering even after scoring good in B.E. or B.Tech because of the fear of not being eligible for campus placements on account of poor grads in 10th or 12th board exams.

Well, here's the truth: Percentage, scores and aggregates don't matter.

Most MNCs and other IT companies do not care about 60% eligibility criteria. (at least not in your 10th or 12th boards). Though it is true that eligibility criterion varies every year from college to college depending upon the requirement of the job, over the last few years most popular companies have recruited students who have less than 60% (and even less than 50% in some cases). Names of these tech giants includes - TCS, Cognizant, Wipro, Siemens, TechMahindra, Convergys, Zensar, Accenture, HP, HCL, Dell, Lenovo etc. There are many other IT companies whose names you might not have heard yet.

Now comes the part where you get to sit for campus placements or not. You might get and might not, but then there are walk-ins going on year round in most tech & IT service companies. Many of them do not give any weightage to SSC and HSC scores.

Pro Tip: A fresher will always get better work exposure in a small IT company. It is advisable to learn as much as you can in a small company for initial 2-3 years and then plan to join a MNC. The reason being that you will get a chance to reach a higher position very quickly in a small company as excellent performance gets noticed very easily over there. However, due to extreme competition, it is not easy to climb up the organisational hierarchy in a MNC.

In any company, there are certain skills that the recruiters demand from every job applicant. Here are the top ones:
1. Ability to communicate well.
2. Good aptitude skills. (to determine your analytical & reasoning skills)
3. Basic knowledge of at least one technology.

My suggestion is to stop bothering about your SSC and 10+2 marks and percentage and concentrate on improving your communication and aptitude skills. Find a subject you love in your curriculum and become better at it when you have free time on your hands during college. If you have the skills, the recruiters will definitely spot the talent.

If you have any queries regarding this, please ask in replies below.
I request fellow engineers to share their experiences and add suggestions to make this useful for engineering students.

Totally depends on what the recruiting companies want. It's not like you've to get your perfect job in the first shot. You start somewhere and keep growing. The degree only helps with your first job and after that, it's totally irrelevant.

Not sure what you mean by 'better job' here, but do understand that for increasing your chances of getting placed you really need to build a good portfolio. Learn top skills and practice them a lot. As a CS student, if you are interested in Database, or Networking or Programming or some OS, really get into the depths of that particular subject. Read all you can about that topic. You don't need to be jack of all trades. You need to be an expert in one subject. That's how you get hired. Make your CV or Resume irresistible for the employer. You can outshine others in a campus placement drive or a simple walk-in at a company, by highlighting your skills in the form of actual work that you've done. Take up freelance projects (literally build stuff for free). Create a software or a web app or a service on your own and put its demo on the web. Become excellent at any of the skills and then go looking for jobs in that particular domain. You are sure to get the best jobs in town.

Folks!!! Many other members in the communtiy already mentioned numerous times that % doesn't matter...u need to have a specific skills if u need to land in software field .....juzz for information I would like to repeat again that most companies require a min aggregate of 60% as eligibility criteria and pple who are having less then 60% also need not worry ...juzz come up with a new innovative project and show up ur skills to companies there are many companies small scale leveled who can still hire pple with less then 50% also..and if u ask me I'd always say its better to work for small companies. As it provides more better and rich experience when compared to mncs..tnq!!! Happy coding!!!

During lateral hiring, the companies dont usually look for your 12th percentage. You said that you have an experience of more than 5 years in networking. So, that's a great thing. You need to highlight all the skills you have, all the tools/software/hardware you know and have worked on in your CV and apply for the MNCs. They will definitely have some good positions for you. All the best.

Hey Man, some companies do hire candidates with your percentages as well. Percentages are all filters to cut the number of applying students, that's all.
I would suggest, wherever you find good opportunity, just grab that, no matter company is MNC CMM Level 5 or not.
Once you work hard and start possessing unique skill set , or lets say combination of skill sets, and with that suppose you switch, you would be surely entertained.

Students are taking admissions into various institutes to learn various programming languages/technologies. Java and .NET are most common now a days, any x y z institute would be ready to make you learn. I would suggest you start on these as the jobs in these streams are common. There are many other courses like SAP, HADOOP, CCNA stuffs, I would suggest to make a research about these.

A certification always helps. Go for a course that you are interested in. Talk to the friends in the IT or Electronics industry, who are having a job that you dream of. Ask them about vacancies and what kind of work freshers do. It is important to build your skill set. Once you have certifications, don't stop there. Start doing projects of your own. Register yourself on freelancer websites and offer technical help.
In short, build a strong technical portfolio and next time there's a vacancy, the employer wont be able to resist you. There are a lot of institutes that offer placement help.
Academic records < technical skills.
Always remember that.

Please read above answer for this.

Students are taking admissions into various institutes to learn various programming languages/technologies. Java and .NET are most common now a days, any x y z institute would be ready to make you learn. I would suggest you start on these as the jobs in these streams are common. There are many other courses like SAP, HADOOP, CCNA stuffs, I would suggest to make a research about these.
@Ankita Katdare - Thoughts please?
thank you so much for giving me a path

Less than 60% criteria? So it means you can apply?

A lot of students are sending us messages asking about companies that accept applications if the students have less than 60% aggregate in final year or all four years of engineering. It seems that it has become a norm for all companies coming for campus recruitment to put up an eligibility criteria of minimum 60%. Some companies go a step forward and demand more than 60 % throughout in 10th and 12th boards and even in the 4-year B.E or B.Tech course.
Though it might seem unfair for the students who got less marks due to some serious health issues or dropping out due to personal problems, that's how it is for most companies.

Now, CrazyEngineers is flooded with queries such as these:







You get the gist. There are many students worried about campus placements right from their 1st year in an engineering college. A lot of co-students, seniors, relatives and even some online forums seem to be spreading rumours about you not being eligible in any company. I have read questions from engineering students, where they regret taking admission in engineering even after scoring good in B.E. or B.Tech because of the fear of not being eligible for campus placements on account of poor grads in 10th or 12th board exams.

Well, here's the truth: Percentage, scores and aggregates don't matter.

Most MNCs and other IT companies do not care about 60% eligibility criteria. (at least not in your 10th or 12th boards). Though it is true that eligibility criterion varies every year from college to college depending upon the requirement of the job, over the last few years most popular companies have recruited students who have less than 60% (and even less than 50% in some cases). Names of these tech giants includes - TCS, Cognizant, Wipro, Siemens, TechMahindra, Convergys, Zensar, Accenture, HP, HCL, Dell, Lenovo etc. There are many other IT companies whose names you might not have heard yet.

Now comes the part where you get to sit for campus placements or not. You might get and might not, but then there are walk-ins going on year round in most tech & IT service companies. Many of them do not give any weightage to SSC and HSC scores.

Pro Tip: A fresher will always get better work exposure in a small IT company. It is advisable to learn as much as you can in a small company for initial 2-3 years and then plan to join a MNC. The reason being that you will get a chance to reach a higher position very quickly in a small company as excellent performance gets noticed very easily over there. However, due to extreme competition, it is not easy to climb up the organisational hierarchy in a MNC.

In any company, there are certain skills that the recruiters demand from every job applicant. Here are the top ones:
1. Ability to communicate well.
2. Good aptitude skills. (to determine your analytical & reasoning skills)
3. Basic knowledge of at least one technology.

My suggestion is to stop bothering about your SSC and 10+2 marks and percentage and concentrate on improving your communication and aptitude skills. Find a subject you love in your curriculum and become better at it when you have free time on your hands during college. If you have the skills, the recruiters will definitely spot the talent.

If you have any queries regarding this, please ask in replies below.

You can go through this thread thoroughly. There are many companies which recruit without 60% criteria. There's no list as such for small companies who recruit without that criteria.
You can try applying to - Amazon, Infosys etc.
Also, build a strong CV - a creative one where you highlight all your top skills and then apply to all the startups in your area. This way you can secure a job, get on-the-job experience, build skills further and hop to a better job.

You will start to hate your 12th self..for getting these marks...with many many valid reasons...
But those reasons can't cope out the fact...you are unable to sit in thjs company...that takes half of your friends...and you didn't even had a chance to prove yourself..

Well now....going to join CDAC...there also...almost everywhere on internet it is said...you will have less chances than others...

It shakes you to the core...no matter how much you have knowledge in your field....how much you are willing to shape yourself for that field....but those percents ...kill it...time to time...again and again...

It's up to the college authorities to put up their case in front of recruiters and have them conduct campus placements.

The college won't affect your placements much. In the end, all that matters is that you are eligible for the placements and can crack interviews. There's plenty of material available on the site for help with placements.

Rajeshkar, thanks for sharing your query. Let me tell you one thing. For sure, most of MNC's Like Infosys, TCS, Wipro looks after it. Its just an eligible criteria to appear for interview.

Does this imply aggregate of all 8 semesters or the aggregate which comes on our BE degree(i.e. last two semesters)?

This says it all about the issue.
Sometimes I think, we are stopping many wonderful brains to come up with some beautiful stuffs due to this process of hiring.
Keep on trying clicking some companies which do not recruits seeing the mark-sheet.
PS: Anyways, in today's world, mark-sheets do not earn dollars for these IT companies. It is the right-Knowledge-Applied-At-Right-Place, which matters. Hope, companies would change their way to hire the buds.
I'm 18 years old. I got 66% in 10the and 50.4% in 12th this year. Should I repeat class 12 or take an admission in collage with management quota??

Similar question was asked in thread earlier. But final conclusion
If you believe the percentage could your problem applying in your favorite company. Please do so.
For example: Infosys has criteria of 60% throughout. I get call from Infosys as per profile. So, I ask first question if they consider a 56% in CBSE guy. As, per their policy they don't. End of discussion.

Companies consider 60% criteria either on following two way:
1. Average of all semester:
(Sum of all semesters) / (No. of semesters)

Semesters: Decleared result.
2. University calculation of result:
Ex: AKTU (formally Uttar Pradesh Technical University) calculate percentage as
Weightage of ( 25% of First year + 50% Second year
+ 75% of Third + 100% of final year)
Even if your final AKTU university result is 65%. But your average score is below 60%. The company which follows 1st way of calculation. You will not be eligible.

Very interesting points @Anoop‍ If anyone has further queries about companies recruiting for students having less than 60% in engineering, let's discuss what issues you are facing here.

What should I do to get a job off campus with 55%?

Ankita Katdare
Ankita Katdare • Jun 26, 2018

@Shreyas‍ First things first - Though 55% would be considered a satisfactory score by many, most MNCs and campus placement companies demand 60% and above. Considering that you have already completed your final year B.E. or B.Tech with less than 60%, you should start thinking about joining small and medium companies instead of MNCs. 

Many small companies and startups demand 'skills' instead of the score. Things to focus on immediately after graduation -

1. Soft Skills - Personality Development, English Language, Confidence Building.

2. Technical Skills - Whatever branch you are from, choose the subjects that you like the most. See if you can do a certification course in that subject or skill from a renowned institute. If money is an issue at such institutes, consider doing online training and certification from websites like Udemy. 

3. Build Resume/Profile - You need to highlight your strong points - What certifications you have, skills you are proficient in, projects you have done as a hobby or in past time to show that you can actually 'implement' the skills you have learned and not just know the theory.

4. Start Freelancing - Make use of your free time off campus to work in your free time. With online jobs increasing by the day, you could build a profile on any one of the freelancer websites and start bidding for projects and complete them successfully. This way you earn while you learn.

5. Apply for jobs vigorously - Always be on a lookout for jobs on online portals and vacancies in newspapers. Don't be afraid to start small. Any job is better than no job and will add to your experience in your resume. Use that to jump up the corporate ladder.

We wish you all the best. If you have further questions, feel free to ask.

Thank you ?

Hello , i have 73% in 10th , 53% in 12th and 7.04 cgpa till 6th sem of computer engineering. So as from this month my college placement starts and till today some companies came for placement and all of them had criteria that 60% in 10th , 12th so should i wait for companies in which my 12th marks are eligible or should i try off campus or go for higher studies like MBA in good college?

Kaustubh Katdare • Jul 10, 2018

@omkar - You don't have to 'wait'. You should of course try off-campus. The option of further studies applies only if you actually want to go for it and can crack CAT (and other similar entrance exams). Have you taken mock CAT and checked your score? A lot of training institutes offer pan-India mock tests so that you can check where you stand in the competition. 

Unless you are confident of getting into any of the top 20 MBA colleges in India, there's no point in going for MBA. Of course, you can still get an MBA from any college and try your luck afterwards. 

You might want to consider another option for CDAC, if you still to stay in the technical domain. 

Have you considered those options? 

Yes I have already joined TIME institute for this , in a hope that it will increase my score in aptitude test. So if I get top college in mba then I have good chance there? Or there will be same situation like this?

@Omkar - An honest answer may not please you, but I'll post it anyway. The thing is - if you get into a very good college - your chances of placement are good, but not at all guaranteed. If you've made up your mind to get into MBA, make sure that you get into a very good college; otherwise the situation may not be any different from what it is now.

i have 68% in final year of engineering  e&tc . But i  have aggregate 59.88% throughout 4 years? I have question whether MNC companies want aggregate of all four years or they just look at BE marks?Am i eligible for MNC companies?

Kaustubh Katdare
Kaustubh Katdare • Jul 15, 2018

@Vaishnavi - There's no common rule that applies to all the MNCs. Many IT companies ask for 60%+ performance throughout junior and senior college. 

Also, the eligibility criteria for recruitment keeps on changing and you should check with the training and placement department of your college for the criteria. 

That said, you don't have to worry. Prepare yourself with best of the skills in the domain that you wish to make your career in and aim for 2-3 years of experience before getting into MNC. You'll have a good chance of making more money than your peers, if you join any MNC with some prior work experience. 

All the best!

Taking about aggrigate if we do vlsi course with 100% placement there also percentage come into picture ha 

i attended zensar interview and went till hr round they told they will share the feedback later  whatis the probablity that i will be selected

Kaustubh Katdare
Kaustubh Katdare • Aug 23, 2018

@Karanjot - how long has it been since you took the interview? Did they inform you about the time-frame within which you'd get the answer? 

i was interviewed last week .. it was a campus interview so they tild they will share the feedback to TPO

Kaustubh Katdare
Kaustubh Katdare • Aug 23, 2018

Okay. First thing to do is to follow up with your TPO and check if Zensar has communicated about the status. Were you the only one who reached till HR round from your college? 

If it's only your result that is pending, you should follow up with TPO and ask them to get the status. Your TPO would know who to contact and get the relevant details. 

Typically, companies would convey the result within a week or max two. However, Zensar might be following a different policy. 

Your best bet is to talk to your TPO and find out more information.

@sangmesh khadke @Rehan hussain I think hundreds of students face this problem in India. You are not alone in this, and you are right.. companies shouldn't really care about the percentage of students while recruiting. They can instead focus on taking an entrance test and interview. 

Here's a list of companies for computer science and IT engineers that do hire without keeping any 55% or 50% eligibility criteria:

  1. Accenture
  2. Syntel
  3. Tech Mahindra.

I am not yet sure about Mechanical Engineers..

An interesting note - in the United States, big companies like Google and Apple have dropped the 'Engineering Degree' criteria for most of their recruitment. These companies have realised that it's not the degree that's essential; but the actual skills and the experience that candidate brings to the table. 

I'm quite sure that Indian companies will follow the same criteria in near future for hiring engineers; but it could take a few more years. 

49.9  percent eligible in 12th standard

@venkat ramana  - It's impossible to figure out what question you have and what help can we provide. Please take a moment to write your question in detail and tell more information about your background. 

I got 72% in 10th and 59.16 in 12th and 65% in (3rd year) engineering what I have to do please tell me

@Shilpa Sannakkinavar Concentrate on the remaining SEMs and try to score well. Also make sure that you are well prepared to crack aptitude tests and interviews. In addition aim for a certification in any programming language of your choice like JAVA. 

I have 68% in 10th and 59.8% in 12th and 78% in b.tech(7th sem) . I'm not getting eligible any company even in off-campus . what should i do now...please response

@SUBHAM Have you tried applying for post graduate programs? Once you do your post grad, your past scores wont matter so much. Or else, you can try applying for small scale companies and startups.
