Hey ! Ive got a score of 58 and a percentile of 69.28 in acting JET2019.. Will i be able to clear the first stage ?

Arishmita Aditya 22nd May, 2019

Hi Udit, the Film and Television Institute of India, Pune and Satyajit Ray Film and Television Insititute, Kolkata are both one of the renowned colleges of art and film production in India. The Joint Entrance Exam (JET) is a multi-stages selection programme and for pursuing your eduation in these colleges, you need to pass in all the required stages. 

This year the FTII hosted the JET 2019 on 24th February in 2 sessions across 26 centres in India. The results of JET 2019 has already been declared on 17th May. You can check it in https://www.applyadmission.net/jet2019/ResultWrittenTest_JET2019.aspx using your registered application number, Date of Birth and Roll Number. 

As it seems that your result has already been declared, you can confirm your status for clearing the first stage. 69.28 percentile is a good result, but every year the selection criteria changes according to the average performance. 

I hope you can access your result conveniently, do enquire in case of further necessity.

Good Luck Udit!
