Answer by Arûn Râinâ:
yes, keep calm and enjoy if you have a good IR in JEE MAINS, you will certainly get any NIT'S, depending upon your rank.Your admission to NIT will be done by CENTRAL SEAT ALLOCATION BOARD (csab) which gives score by that 40% boards + 60% JEE MAINS kind of theory. They will give rank list based on this scores according to which you'll be asked to fill up your choices (NIT's plus some additional pvt. Universities ) .
If you have marks above the cut off for the JEE ADVANCED , then you can give the advance for getting selected in top IIT'S, but if by chance you didn't make into IIT'S, Then by god's grace you have already cleared JEE MAINS, and you will get any NIT'S, upon your AIR rank.
best of luck !
