The IIT-JEE exam is held to fill up the seats at the premier engineering institutes in India, the Indian Institute of technology. The JEE exam consists of two parts, one is the screening and the second is the main exam, only the students who have secured the required cut-off marks in the screening exams are allowed to sit for the main exam.
The other premier institute of engineering like the BITS Pilani conduct their own entrance exams. BITS, Pilani conducts an online exam at several exam centres and this test is called BIT-SAT.
