Engineering is one of the three fields that most of the Indian students are focused on. So students have to be aware of Engineering Entrance Exams like JEE, GATE, BITSAT, VITEEE. The remaining two being doctor and IAS. Most of the students start making their mind to be an engineer from class VI-VII itself.
The scenario is similar in most of the family where some students are forced to be an engineer. Whatever be the case, the fight to study in top engineering college is seen in the students.
The main aim for any engineering aspirant in India is to get into IITs, NITs, BITS Pilani and many other top-ranked colleges. The colleges take up students with good knowledge in the field of physics, maths and chemistry.
Similarly, there are various streams in engineering, which are allotted as per the ranks. There are many entrance exams conducted for different engineering colleges, but the syllabus for all is same.
Jee Entrance Exam
IITs, NITs and various centrally funded colleges take admission from a common entrance examination known as JEE. JEE is conducted in two stages, i.e. JEE Mains for NITs and centrally funded colleges while Advanced for the IITs.
Top ten percentile qualifies for the JEE advanced examination. Likewise, many state colleges and private colleges as their paper. One needs to clear the paper of the institution he/she wants to study in.
The fundamentals of the topics learnt in class 11 and 12 must be clear. The focus of all the entrance exam is to check the level of concept that has been learnt.
Apart from IIT, all the engineering entrance exams are to the level of NCERT taught in the school. IITs just has a level up with the question in depth with the topics taught. Good understanding of the syllabus is must to clear the exams.
Today, it is seen that fight of engineering college is to the par. Students are engrossed in coaching institute since class VI-VII and prepare to get into IIT or top-ranked NIT.
They engross themselves to study and miss out the school life for the sake of better future. This has added to their advantage with rest of the competitor.
But, the new rule is a challenge for them. According to the new rule, one must have 20% percentile on the board's examination which is added to the main score.
The rank and score are decided with an addition of the particular percentage of boards marks with the marks obtained in JEE Mains. This has been problematic as one needs to compulsory attend school and obtain good marks, usually greater than 80% to be eligible for IIT and get good rank for NIT.
Similarly, the private colleges to have certain boards criteria to be eligible for individual streams. The priorities arranged in the basis of most opted branches and their demand in the corporate world.
Students need to score top position along with good percentage on the boards to secure a good rank. This makes them able to opt for the desired streams and pursue the dream waiting for too long.
The basic thing for an engineering entrance exams to be cleared and opt a better college with the stream you want is:
- Good understanding of topics.
- Score good percentage in boards.
- Score well in the entrance exam.
