The candidates who wish to have a bright career ahead in the field of engineering aspire to get admission in the top engineering institutes of India like IIT, NIT, IIIT and CFTI’s. However, the admission to these engineering institutes is not a piece of cake as the candidates need to pass several screening tests before they can get admission in these highly coveted institutes. If you are a young aspirant looking forward to make your choice in these institutes then you must take a good note of the highlights of these exams very seriously. Keep the following points in mind while preparing well in advance:
Why do you need JEE Advanced?
JEE Advanced is the main test that you need to qualify for in order to sit for the counseling process of the IIT’s. The examination is held by the seven zonal heads in the country of the highly sought after Indian Institute of Technology. However, you cannot apply for Advanced stage directly. All the candidates need to appear for JEE Mains first which is also a nationally conducted screening test for admission to the Engineering colleges in India. You need to score well and be among the top 245,000 candidates to ace the examination in order to qualify for the next stage. After the advanced stage examination is conducted, the scores will determine the future of admission of the candidates in these institutes. You can get admission in the different IIT’s according to your ranking in the counseling procedure. You can apply for a bachelor’s course, an integrated bachelor’s and master’s course and a dual degree course as well with the score of the advanced examination.
The examination is conducted in two sets with two papers to appear for in a single day. Each paper is of three hours duration and conducted is a computer based test. There are three sections of the papers divided according to the subjects: Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. The first paper consists of multiple choice type questions which are related to conceptual topics. The next paper is dedicated to numerical problems only. Each paper should be attempted with utmost caution since there is negative marking present. The papers are available to attempt in two languages, namely English and Hindi. Students are advised to prepare cautiously along with time constraints so that they get an idea about the speed of answering in order to succeed with good scores.
The conducting authorities have made some relaxations in some of the rules and also increased seats in some of the sectors keeping in mind the growth of education. One of the most striking one is that to take the female candidate absorption percentage from 8% to 14%, supernumerary seats will be allotted. Also, 400 more candidates will be selected from JEE Mains scores to appear in the advanced screening test. There are 23 IIT’s that will be taking in candidates in the undergraduate course from the scores of this test. You must prepare well in advance to secure your seat in the prestigious and Government Engineering colleges in India.
