JEE Main Score

23

JEE or Joint Entrance Examination is conducted every year by CBSE for engineering and architecture course aspirants across India. Based on their JEE Main score, students can seek admission in various undergraduate programmes in engineering and architecture in a variety of institutions. The JEE exam was previously known as All India Engineering Entrance Examination or AIEEE. JEE is a national-level exam that ranks engineering aspirants based on their performance in the exam. According to its All India Ranks, students can be admitted to participating colleges, including IITs, NITs, IIITs, and centrally funded technical institutes.

The Significance of JEE Scores

Every engineering aspirant wants to get admission in the branch of his/her choice and dream institution. To do that, it is highly important that they work hard and achieve a good JEE Main score. As most of the students want to study in prestigious colleges like IITs, NITs, and IIITs, this is not possible without scoring well in JEE Main. In fact, they have to be among the top students in the country to be eligible to take the next stage of this exam, which is called JEE Advanced. Only the ranks achieved in JEE Advanced can fulfil their dream of getting into IITs. JEE Main results help them in getting through NITs and other good colleges.

• Based on your score and ultimately your rank, you will be allotted a college and branch of engineering as per the choices you submit before your counselling round.

• Please also note that you may appear for JEE Advanced based on your JEE Main score. The exam authorities will decide a cutoff or minimum score based on the result of JEE Main. Students above this cutoff will be allowed to appear for JEE Advanced, which can get you admitted in IITs and ISM. While there is no set number of students who can appear for JEE Advanced exam, around two lakhs students usually go for the exam each year.

Are JEE Scores Useful Elsewhere?

Yes, you can use your JEE Main score not only to gain admission in NITs, IIITs and other participating colleges but also in many other engineering institutes across the country that accept these scores as their admission criterion. However, you will have to be alert so you do not miss their application or counselling dates. Choose the colleges that do not fall under JoSAA (Joint Seat Allocation Authority) and apply on time to participate in their engineering admission processes based on your score in JEE Main. You may also keep track of the state engineering colleges in your home state. Several of them conduct separate counselling for engineering admissions. You will have to register for them separately.
