      Greetings from Eduncle!

      Thanks for sharing your query with us!

      You have little to no chances for getting a seat at the IITs. However, you can wait for the future rounds of counselling. where you can get either IIT Gandhinagar or IIT Ropar.

      Wish you all the Best for your future learning endeavours!
