Welcome to The IIG Academy Learning
The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is an engineering entrance assessment conducted for admission to various engineering colleges in India. It is constituted by two different examinations: the JEE Main and the JEE Advanced.
The Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) conducts the joint admission process for a total of 23 Indian Institute of Technology campuses, 31 National Institute of Technology campuses, 25 Indian Institute of Information Technology campuses and 19 other Government Funded Technical Institutes (GFTIs) based on the rank obtained by a student in JEE Mains and JEE Advanced.
Admissions Opportunity Based On JEE Score
JEE Main participating institutes include 31 National Institutes of Technology (NITs), 23 Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) and 23 Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs). Apart from these, the JEE Main score is accepted by certain self-financed universities and institutions. It must be noted that to get admissions in IITs along with JEE Main you also need to clear JEE Advanced with a good score.
Institutes other than IIT also accept JEE Main Scores If a candidate isn’t able to get the rank to be eligible for taking JEE Advanced, then he/she need not worry. India has an extensive network of institutes/ colleges. Most of the universities/institutes have their own entrance exam; however, these universities also accept JEE Main score for engineering admission. A cutoff score is decided soon after the release of JEE Main result. Candidates with a JEE Main score above the cutoff score have to fill the application form. Officials release a separate merit list to call candidates for admission on the basis of JEE Main score.
While choosing the best institute after IIT/NIT, candidates must consider a number of factors including Placements, Infrastructure, Faculty, Reviews from alumni, Accreditation, Financial aid options, Student to faculty ratio etc. NOTE – Institutes/ Universities may or may not disclose the cutoff score for admission on the basis of JEE Main scores depending upon the selection process.
