- JEE Mains
The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2023 is being administered by the National Testing Agency (NTA) in stages. Except for the drawing component of Paper 2 (B.Arch), which is a pen-and-paper test, JEE Mains 2023 will be computer-based.
JEE Main is the process of getting into the renowned IIITs, NITs, and other more esteemed engineering schools in the country.
More than 12 lakh candidates show up for this exam in the hopes of passing and getting into JEE Advanced. The exam has a 3-hour time limit and is multiple-choice in format.
Two exams make up the exam: Paper 1 is for B.Tech/B.E. candidates, and Paper 2 is for B.Arch or B.Planning candidates.
- JEE Advanced
The seven zonal IITs hold JEE Advanced, the second stage of the JEE system, once a year under the direction of the Joint Admission Board. The exam results are used to determine admission to the various Indian IITs’ BTech programs.
Remember that only the top 2.5 lakh JEE Main rank holders will be permitted to take the JEE Advanced 2022 exam. The JEE Advanced 2022 exam date has been made public.
In an online format, the Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) will administer the BITSAT exam 2023 university-level engineering entrance exam. All qualified applicants are offered admission to the three BITS campuses through the BITSAT (Birla Institute of Technology and Science Admission Test).
This exam attracts about 2 lakh applications each year, making it a highly sought-after admission exam. The BITSAT objective-based test has a three-hour time limit and is divided into four sections: Physics, Chemistry, English Proficiency, and Logical Reasoning, and Mathematics. Admission is accessible in about 2,000 seats.
The annual online entrance exam for admission to the institution is administered by the Manipal Academy of Higher Education (formerly Manipal University). Over 50,000 applicants take the Manipal Entrance Test (MET), formerly known as the MU OET, which is a university-level exam.
Through MU OET, admissions are offered for 16 engineering courses and are available to all qualified students. The entrance exam lasts 150 minutes and is administered online. The examination consists of objective multiple-choice questions, and applicants must pass it in order to be considered for admission to the institute.
Under VITEEE, there are about 5000 undergraduate engineering seats available. Every year, almost 2 lakh students take the university-level exam, which is administered by VIT University.
The test will be administered online and will be impartial in nature. The applicants must complete 125 questions from the Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Aptitude, and English sections in the allotted two and a half hours.
SRM Institute of Science and Technology administers the SRM Joint Engineering Entrance Examination (SRMJEEE) to all qualified applicants. For consideration for one of the 7,000 available undergraduate engineering seats, an online or computer-based test is administered.
Approximately 1 lakh people apply each year to take the entrance exam. The 125-question entrance exam is a requirement for admission to the university, and candidates must pass it to be considered. The top 1000 IIT JEE rank holders as well as the top scorers in national and state board exams are given direct admissions.
