Engineering Entrance Exams have always been the hot choice for millions of higher secondary students, who dream to pursue attractive careers in Engineering. Most of the national as well as state level Engineering Entrance Tests like JEE (Main & Advanced), IIITs, NITs, GFTIs and for other Engineering Colleges of India, are held in the months of April / May / June for the academic year starting from July / August of the following year.
Usually, the syllabus of the entrance tests is based on the NCERT courses outline of class XI and XII. The motto of almost all the entrance tests is to assess the fundamental concepts of Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics, and their varied applications; but the questions being asked now a day are a bit tricky. However, in some specific entrance tests, questions are also asked on Mental Ability Test (MAT), English Proficiency, Logical Reasoning/ General Aptitude and Drawing etc. Single test is conducted for most of the entrance tests; while for some specific exams, entrance tests are conducted in two-stages / two-days.
In 2013, The Ministry of Human Resource & Development (MHRD), Govt. of India directed to conduct combined entrance tests called Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) for all IITs, NITs, IIITs and Other State & IIT-JEE affiliated Engineering Colleges in India. The JEE has been divided into two phases: JEE (Main) – A common entrance test for admission to undergraduate degree programs in India’s Government as well as Private Engineering / Science Institutions/ Colleges/ Universities and the screening test for the IITs. JEE (Advanced) is conducted for the admission into the very coveted IITs after JEE (Main).
The states of Madhya Pradesh, Nagaland, Odisha, Haryana, Uttarakhand and some other institutions voluntarily have joined JEE (Main) system for admission in the B.Tech/B.E. courses. Therefore, the candidates seeking admission to the institutions in these states, which were earlier admitting based on their State Level Examination are also advised to fill in the JEE (Main) application form online.
