What is IIT?
The full form of IIT is Indian Institute of Technology.
IITs are one of the most prestigious institutions not only in India but also in the world. Many high-level scientists, researchers, technicians and engineers of the country and abroad emerged through these institutions.
The first IIT institute in India was IIT, Kharagpur which was established in 1951 by the Government of India. Currently India has a total of 23 IITs located in different states and parts of the country. Lakhs of students study in these institutions.
When it comes to engineering, the name of IITs comes first because it is the most prestigious institute in India and millions of skilled and capable engineers emerge from these institutes who work in big companies like Google, Microsoft and Facebook.
All IIT institutes are autonomous institutes, i.e. all their courses and regulations are developed by the IIT institute itself.
Generally, admission to IITs is taken after 3rd class. Two entrance exams are required for admission in these institutes. These exams are also called as one of the toughest exams in the world.
How to do IIT
To get admission in IIT colleges, students must first clear G Main.
After that top 2.5 lakh students clearing JEE give JEEAdvanced exam for admission in IITs. Top one lakh students who pass it get admission in IITs.
IIT colleges have different courses which are called 'branches'. Such as civil engineering, software engineering, mechanical, computer science branches etc. Students who get higher ranks are promoted for B.Tech like Software Engineering whereas lower ranked students are supposed to study branches like Mechanical, Civil.
Although the branch selection depends on the candidate, getting very good marks is very important to get admission in IITs in a branch like computer science, otherwise it becomes difficult to get admission in top IIT institutes in that branch.
What is JEE Mains?
The full form of JEE is Joint Entrance Examination .
JEE Mains is a national level entrance exam required for admission to undergraduate engineering courses like BTech and BE in NITs, IIITs and CFTI colleges.
JEE Main exam 2022 is organized twice a year by NTA (National Testing Agency). This exam will be held in June and July. It is in computer based mode. JEE Main is conducted in 13 languages which are English, Hindi, Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi, Malayalam, Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu.
Note that passing JEE Main exam does not get admission in IITs because to get into IITs one has to take JEE Advance exam after JEE Main.
JEE Main consists of two papers: one for B.Tech admission and the other for B.Arch admission. Most of the students give JEE Mains only for B.Tech.
In some states, JEE Main exam is required for admission in state engineering colleges, but confirm with the state authority for this.
