What is JEE All About

JEE- Joint Entrance Examination is conducted to offer admission to interested candidates in undergrad engineering institutes like NITs (National Institute of Technology), IIITs (Indian Institute of Information Technology), IITs (Indian Institute of Technology) and other centrally funded technical institutions (CFTIs). Engineers have always been in demand. So the aspirants willing to pursue their career in Engineering and willing to enter these institutes are required to sit for the JEE.

Prior to the Joint Entrance Examination, two different examinations were held for the admission purpose, the AIEEE and the IIT-JEE.

Students able to clear JEE-Main can apply for JEE-Advanced.
