The National Testing Agency (NTA) is finalizing the application process for Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Mains today. This year, JEE is held four times in one year, usually twice a year. The JEE Main score is the IIT entrance gateway for the JEE Advanced Examination and gives entry to NITs, IIITs, and several other institutions throughout India based on eligibility. One of the biggest tests, we have less than 10 lakh students each year.
JEE Main has a percentage mark which means that the marks obtained by the students are counted in relation to the highest scorer. With such a high level of competition, not all students pass through the JEE Main, and among those who qualify, sometimes the position is too long to transfer them to college or a course of choice. JEE marks alone do not translate into engineering college admissions, there are many other tests that confirm engineering degrees with less competition, by comparison.
Here are some suggestions on how to look or get an appointment for an engineering course beyond JEE.
