The Indian Institutes of Technology Joint Entrance Examination (IIT JEE) is a highly tough and competitive entrance examination held in India for admission to undergraduate engineering and architecture programs at the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs), and other renowned engineering institutes.
It is split into two stages:
JEE Mains then 2. JEE Advanced
Stage 1 : JEE Mains
Stage 2: JEE Advanced
This is the first level of the test, which is administered by the National Testing Agency (NTA). JEE Main is administered twice a year, in January and April. The test is computer-based and consists of multiple-choice questions (MCQs) from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. JEE Main results are used for admission to NITs, IIITs, and other non-IIT institutes.
Only the top JEE Main rank holders are eligible to take JEE Advanced. It is led on a rotating basis by one among the IITs. JEE Advanced is a more difficult test that serves as a doorway to admission into the IITs’ undergraduate programs. The test includes both multiple-choice and numerical response questions. Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics are among the disciplines studied.
Some key points are as follows:
Candidates must have finished their 10+2 or equivalent examination with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics as core courses in order to take the JEE test. There are also age and number of tries restrictions.
Because the JEE test is so tough, diligent preparation and a deep comprehension of the subjects are required. Many students attend coaching institutions or study independently utilizing reference books, study materials, and internet resources.
The JEE test syllabus is based on the 10+2 level curriculum of Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. It covers a broad variety of topics and necessitates a thorough grasp of fundamental principles.
Rank and Counseling:
Students are ranked based on their performance in the JEE Advanced test, and the top rank holders are assigned seats at various IITs depending on their choices and availability. Seat allocation occurs through a centralized counseling procedure known as JoSAA (Joint Seat Allocation Authority).
Passing the JEE test and gaining admission to an IIT or other top engineering college gives up a plethora of job options. Graduates from these universities are in great demand by prominent firms in a variety of industries, both in India and overseas.
